Downloading Media Player Codec Pack Update from CNet

I tried downloading latest Media Player Codec Pack
Version 4.4.0 | Added: 10/07/2015 | See related Video Players
What's new in this version: Changes in release 4.4.0:
Version 4.4.0 may contain unspecified features updates and bug fixes, from my CNet download email. Everything went well until my security alerted that it was "unsafe" to install this .exe software. My question is what do I do now to get a "safe" download of this update?

Clarification needed from R. Proffitt

I followed the link and read about Ninite. When I looked at the apps I'm to check, I have all the ones I want already. It won't install unless I choose some of the apps listed. No where is Media Player even listed amongst them. Will this really help me out or get me into more trouble? I'd appreciate any assistance you can give me on this.

There's a Media Player already in Windows.

WMP (media player) may need a few CODECs so I'll have to know more about what you want next as WMP (media player) is already built into Windows.

That said, I don't need CODECs at all. Why? I use VLC Player.
