Default WTF?? Virus from legit site?... please help..

Http://www.mail.com/

I stumbled on this site, and saw the messager, that works like aim, and msn, and yahoo, all in one.. So, my question is.. Is it like fraud. Because i tried to download it. And Avg says Trojan Virus found. And asks what i wanna do with it. So is it because this is unknown to Avg, or is it really a virus..? And if it is, what else could i use with Aim, and Msn at once?

even if its a virus, its most probably not a "killer" lol prolly some lame cheap spyware. why would somebody take the time to put a huge virus that'll destroy your computer at mail.com........ yet i'm the kind of guy that would be like hey what the hell if its a virus i'll just FORMAT but i doubt its a virus lol yet ive been wrong before :S


EDIT: Depends how much you really want this program haha

ive lost thousands of music files + all my photos from like 5 years like 4 times in a row.... while not having any backups.... i cant tell you how pissed off you will get loosing years of pictures oyu never backedup.... now i can take anything that the internet will shoot at me





EDIT: IT says its a trojen horse... but then a download manager or wtv.... i think avg is just over reacting becuase your downloading the program to connect to mail.com server to download the acctuall program lol
