I also used it awhile back, John. I don't have it on this machine, probably the XP box. (I skipped Vista..)

If you look at the quote in my last post,

Note: SIW has fallen out of favor because the free version is no longer updated, has to upgrade to Pro version to work on Win8 and above systems, the standard installer contains OpenCandy and the free version is no longer present on their homesite.
Another search reveals alternatives to
Your malware programs may have been picking up on the OpenCandy as the malware.

I agree, I use alternatives myself.

FlicFlac Audio Converter

Very rarely one comes across a top class free program like uTorrent and Avast! Antivirus. Today when I got stuck wanting to convert a few .ape files into .flac files I discovered one. It is FlicFlac Audio Converter, a mere 1.02 megabytes zipped. It is portable and doesn't need to be installed. Downloading site is FlicFlac Audio Converter - Sector Seven.

On running the .exe file the Application Window opens. Just drop the files you want to convert in the Window and the files get converted into any of the five most used formats (FLAC, WAVE, MP3, OGG, APE) shown and as default stored in the same folder where the originals were. I easily converted my APE files to FLAC.

FlicFlac Audio Converter is a must have program for all digital music aficionados.

I have an older free version and it works fine for Windows 7. For other members if you have an older free version I suggest you hang on to it.

I have the old free portable version. Other versions were bundled with Open Candy and required a license after a month or two, maybe three.

A very useful program

If you still want the old malware free 2010 portable version you can grab it here:

The Virustotal report is for the Softpedia download.

I also have a newer 2011 version if anyone wants it. I don't know where you can download that.

I have the 2011.10.29 portable from "Portable apps". They still list the download on their website but if you try to download it you get
"SIWPortable_2011.10.29.paf.exe was not found on this server."

You can still download from here

All downloads are at your own risk but it's bit for bit compatible with my old one. Malwarebytes and Norton give it the ok.
