I just wonder, why there is a download link to hxxp://www.brothersoft.com on avast´s Registration page:

http://www.avast.com/eng/home-registration.v2.php

According to WOT Score Card and  McAfee Site Advisor it has not very good reputation. I remember, that about year ago all the "WOT-donuts" were bright red.

So, is Brothersoft´s site safe or not?



Mcafee says it is green. But I think any site has some virus there is not a 100% clean. So my rules is scan every file when download completely...

I scan every file during a download anyway...good practice.  If it's not possible during the download, then prior to installation.  I like a clean machine  ;D

WOT should only be used as a general guide not the holy grail.
WOT receives it's information and is guided by users input which isn't always right.
I should know.  :(  Even if a site has corrected a suspicious file, there isn't any guarantee
that WOT will ever change an old rating.  :'(
