Probably a virus

Your link gave me a virus. It was detected by Avira Antivir. Quote: SDExplorer - Fast and Easy Access to Your Live SkyDrive storage from Windows Explorer
Too bad, it was too good to be true.

There is such a thing called a false positive. VirusTotal confirms it is a false positive.

Just open your skydrive page. And after you have logged in etc., drag the Icon in front of the URL to the desktop.

I wanted something like the dropbox application. But wth, i am not taking any risk with false positive virus *.exe. I will add a shortcut instead.

There is no virus. VirusTotal says otherwise. 42 of the 42 anti-virus VirusTotal uses, say its not a virus.

Really?

Actually, since it's not functioning at the moment, you can't even download the free version till they finish fixing the advanced version.
