When I tried to download WoT install file, Avast blocked that and said it was some kind of malware.

 

Is it really hacked with virus or is it just antivirus being overprotective?

Two possibilities...

1. Download WoT and it may suck money out you, Avast knows about these things you know.

2. If you are downloading from WG it's safe and Avast just being overly cautious.

One of the above is true :)

 

PS just download, install and enjoy...

I reported that to avast and they said it's not a false positive.
