I am one of those paranoid antivirus people. I have been on keepvid.com in the past and used the applet. I came accross someone saying there could be malware on the site. I have cleared java applets, reinstalled the JRE, ran TSSDkiller, NPE, and all the available scans in kaspersky.

Am I safe?

Does anyone know if I am being paranoid about nothing?

Please help for my sanity's sake!

Thanks for reading, and perhaps for helping.
