At times anti virus programs have "false positive" issues.

The thing here is to be SURE of your download source.

Malwarebyes from

www.malwarebytes.org




The Hughes Download Status Meter from here:


http://my.hughesnet.com/

That is where I tried to download the status meter. It says publisher unknown. I am using AVG as my antivirus. Should I allow the download?

From that link posted and from the picture posted yes.

It is just your AV being cautious and making you THINK, DOUBLE CHECK things and do just what you are doing ! .. question & investigate.

I would not use AVG, it is a memory hog, huge update downloads and caused instability for me.

Better off using Windows Defender and running Malwarebytes once or twice a week.

BTW you can always scan files after downloading them.

Sgoshe .. we need to qualify that a little:

In Win7, Win Defender is a "malware scanner", In Win8/8.1 it takes on other aspects.

With your help It worked. I had to shut  av off first. FYI I use Vista as OS.
