Before you give the file a pass submit the file for analysis How to report false positives
Programs like FreeStudio / Youtube Download are "freeware" with no money charged, but at the price of having various "tools" and "utilities" bundled with them. Installing these is enabled by default, and some versions also attempt to make users install them after closing the main software. So with a negligent click-through, you will get unwanted stuff like toolbars, "optimizers" and a hijacked web browser, redirected to unwanted search portals, start pages and the like.
Thanks I will try your links.
Two of the top ten downloads on CNET (KMPlayer and YTD) are bundling two different types of HTTPS-hijacking adware, and in our research we found that most other freeware sites are doing the same thing. <reference here>
