Some antivirus vendors will not flag a legitimate company distributing questionable and misleading applications.
Other anti-malware are good though, they will mark it adware or potentially unwanted programs.
You can determine which Antivirus scanner will detect by sending the setup file at VirusTotal online scan service.

As to CNET logo on doublemyspeed.com, it is using CNET rating thingy and not the approved by CNET.
I don't think they should use that logo if their product is not reviewed by CNET or not in the download.com website.
CyberDefender, the maker of doublemyspeed.com only have two products in download.com:
CyberDefender Early Detection Center
CyberDefender Registry Cleaner
Thanks for your report!
Just so people are aware. I loaded both of these programs on a completely new instalation of windows and they came back and said I had over 180 issues (meaning virus's and spyware, etc.)
After their scan I scanned using a more reliable and provin anti-virus software and it said my PC was completely clean... Go Figure!!!
I don't really understand how companies can get away with such deceiving practices, scaring people into purchasing thier product. Another thing that boggles my mind is how they had the cnet logo on their homepage saying how they are approved by cnet. Hence my message here....
