Hello,

Is it safe to download CDRTFE.EXE from here: http://cdrtfe.sourceforge.net/

I have MSE, SuperAntiSpyware, Malwarebytes, MS Malicious Software Removal Tool and MS Safety Scanner.

Any help would be gratefully appreciated.

Thanks,
Tony

I don't see any problem with it...Sourceforge is pretty safe and reliable, in my opinion, and I believe the program is available for download at places like cnet and softpedia, as well, also relatively safe. Just use your own judgment and common sense, same as with any other download.

Thanks Required.

I'm asking to be sure, because I was infected with a terrible unremovable malware on my Windows XP Pro SP3 OS.

I have since moved to Windows 7 and don't want to infect that also.

Thanks,
Tony

FYI: you can always submit files for analysis to VirusTotal, this is a site that will scan submitted files with 40+ different AV programs.
You don't even need to download the file (CDRTFE.EXE in your case) to do the analysis.

Before you download the executable, copy the download link.
Go to http://www.virustotal.com and choose "submit a url".
In the webscan report, click on "Antivirus report: View downloaded file analysis".
