    Thanks for heads up guys. I looked into it.

    Basically, the recommendation on WOT was based on the analysis of the setup file via the site called VirusTotal [ ]

    Using that website a person can scan any other website or file for viruses against 20 or so popular antivirus databases. Overall a pretty good site.

    So, here is what I did:

    1- I went ahead and checked the for viruses. ALL CLEAN

    2- I downloaded the setup file from the site and uploaded it to the VirusTotal. Scanned. ALL CLEAN

    3- I scanned the setup file on my PC using Microsoft Security Essentials. ALL CLEAN.

    So, although the site might had issues in the past I am pretty sure it is fine now.

    I have WOT running on chrome browser and I wanted to check out Streaming Video Recorder and WOT claims the site has problems.  Not sure this is a false alarm.

      this is Jane from
      Here I want to explain the reason for you. Previously the site has little bug,
      so it was considered to be a virus software and put it into the virus site
      record by WOT.  But later the issue has been fixed by our developers, now
      the site and the programs in it are all definitely clean and safe to visit and
      use. So now any recheck of the site will prove to be a totally clean site.
