I downloaded the trainer and when i ran it, my Zone Alarm Security Suite blocked it as malicious and i went to virusscan.jotti.org/ and 5 of the anti-virus scans they did came back positive for Malware. I have posted a ticket to CH. Just thought i would let ya'll know

What virus did scans find?
P.S. They scan any file before they upload it, so it is impossible to download a real threat for your PC.

After my Zone alarm went off, i went to the CheatHappens recommened scanner at virusscan.jotti.org/ these are the results of 5 of the scanners that this website uses:

Status: INFECTED/MALWARE

AVG Antivirus Found Generic10.RXL
ClamAV Found PUA.Packed.MEW-1
Fortinet Found PossibleThreat
Ikarus Found Suspect code-parts (probable variant)
Norman Virus Control Found Suspicious_M.gen
Sophos Antivirus Found Mal/EncPk-BU

I understand that CH is quite good with making sure the files are safe on this site, but still a warning is a warning and i dont take any risks that is why i thought i would post it up and see what feed back i get back. I have also let CH aware of the results posted above.
