Hi abruptum,

Good or rather excellent web rep reports info here that support your verdict: https://www.mywot.com/en/scorecard/www.videohelp.com

There was 1 that flagged earlier on VT, but that has now gone with the latest results:
https://www.virustotal.com/nl/url/9b78f7e7d22dc9a3b275dc5f35f2428e7044b6c7c3a925a7652b51028f6a8c37/analysis/1444257503/
So my bet is also set on a false positive detection.
Wait for the white smoke signals from Avast Team Base  ;D

Hi,

this was a false fixed cause by file reputation. The authors of subtitle unfortunately do not use digital signatures and it caused this problem. It was fixed already
