my antivirus still blocks me whenever i try to open it and there isn't any option to just trust it. it can either block, delete or move to virus chest. I'll have to wait for a new version which doesn't get picked up as a virus :(

ilo, it depends on the antivirus you're using, it is always different. normally, when the block-message appears, you can select the "always trust this website"-box, or smth similar. Try to open your Antivirus Program's Options and find the necessary settings there. :)

it doesn't have any options, i've explored the whole program and didn't find anything within its options to allow the download of the program, so i've deactivated the shield that was blocking the network from the options during the download and reactivated it right after. Then I installed the program and it was fine, but the virus message came back everytime I tried opening it.

I can confirm all FS programs are clean: no spyware, trojans or whatever.
A hint for ilo: use a better antivirus :)
ESET Smart Security is the best.
You should also know that every antivirus sooner or later will mark a file suspicious while it's not.
You can also upload seperate files to virustotal.com to check if it's safe or not.
They scan the file with 41 antivirus programs. If you uploaded file gets a 3/41 it's clean. If it gets a 38/41 report you can be 99.9% sure it contains a virus.

Walnor, your antivirus cannot accept the FireFox Cookies Extractor (ffce.exe). maybe it thinks it has a troyan behaviour.

In fact, this component uses firefox cookies to check if a user logged in YouTube or not. To download specific videos (private or age restricted videos) our programs demands a log in to confirm age or profile admission. ffce.exe is responsible for that.

we will either contact the developers or change our settings. we will try to fix this issue, thanks for letting us know!

Hi guys, maybe you need to update your antivirus software, the latest versions do not detect any threats. You can check the programs for viruses with this simple tool. If after checking the .exe file, you get any reports about viruses in the program, please, send us the links showing this and please specify from where you downloaded our programs.

From what site do I download your software this site and this site only...
So it sounds to me like someone has corrupted the latest version of your Youtube converter program.

Hello! Same here, NOD32 said there is a Trojan in the download.

Quarantined: http://208.73.51.25/download/FreeStudio.exe    Reason: a variant of Win32/Kryptik.BNX.trojan

NOD32 uptdates itself, the virus signature database is up to date

Yeah sure.  Everyone should only worry about things that happen to you.  If it is because you are smarter than everyone who doesn't have a Mac it must be very nice to be so fortunate.  You were borne with something you didn't earn.  You have no right to brag.  It's people like you that are causing the downfall of society (if you are smarter than me you must see this because even I am smart enough).
