Please Review This Site and Download Envelop Printer 2.80

Dear WOT,

I think I found a nice utility for simple envelop printing. However, I first am requesting an evaluation from WOT over the Trustworthiness of the site and the download:

According to the security organisation Bkav that software file contains adware. I wouldn't recommend downloading and installing it.

For future reference, if you are not too sure about the trustworthiness of software programs you can test them at VirusTotal as I did, above. Just be certain not to install them first.

Thanks,

I tested and found a better program over at Major Geeks. Ran Major Geek's program with Windows Defender and Virus Total and it came up clean. I like Major Geeks.com, because if a software comes with some unwanted PUPS, they tell you that in the description. Their You Tube Channel has good tutorials on how to avoid malware.

Just as a heads-up, but I looked at the Virustotal report and it appears as though it could have been a heuristic detection, possibly a false-positive.
If you have the ability to provision a virtual machine, I would use that to test anything suspicious.
