You're right.

I downloaded the file myself and my AVG found nothing, but when I uploaded the file to for checking, 3 of the anti-malware utilities they checked with came up with an adware, variously named Rabio.

I've reported this to the Forum Admin, for onward transmission to the CNET.Download team for checking.

Thanks for your report.
