Hello! I was wondering if online-stopwatch.exe that I downloaded from www.online-stopwatch.com/ is dangerous? I have such suspicion because AVG internet security 2013 recognizes that as a threat and also this website (hxxp://www.tweakmysystem.com/fixerror-exe/online-stopwatch.exe.html) recognizes that as a threat, but I am not sure. And if it is dangerous how do I remove it properly in the quickest way possible. Please take note that I am not an expert in computer things.

Is this the page where you downloaded the application from?

Hi there,

If you downloaded it from there then it is safe. The link that you posted is one of the bogus fix sites designed to scam folks out of their money (usually with SpyHunter - a known rogue AM software).

Regards,
Alex
