So, I went to download this program tonight - a friend of mine used to use it years ago and said it was awesome - and as I'm downloading, ESET gives me a warning to let me know it's a potential threat and a virus. It shows this as something called Win32/DownWare.L. I told ESET to disconnect the download.

Care to explain? After seeing multiple threads here about this software containing spyware and malware, I'm really iffy on this.
