Rufus Alert from BitDefender 2015

After much research into how to boot from a USB containing SystemRescueCD, I followed the good advice of several on this forum and chose to download Rufus. My Bitdefender 2015 immediately gave the following message.rufus.jpg

Hmm, I never had a problem with Rufus. You may use Yumi instead. Download YUMI - MajorGeeks

Post a link where the member referred you too,
Most free downloads come with hidden extras it is mandatory to read the install options of all offered free utilities for crapware included,
But it seems that popup blocked the entire site and not just the download :/

Rufus Link

The link is on this page Best method/tool for cloning a failing HDD for Data Recovery?, post number 12 from Jumanji. "1. Download the SystemRescueCD from Download - SystemRescueCd systemrescuecd-x86-4.2.0.iso 380MB and create a bootable pendrive with that ISO using Rufus Rufus - Create bootable USB drives the easy way"

And when I tried this link just now, no alert message from Bitdefender. I know I didn't dream this, I have the screenshot as proof. lol The only issue I can think of is I am using Bitdefender Total Security 2015 and the website is using Malwarebytes. Perhaps they don't play nice on occasion.

thanks WHS and ThrashZone for the quick responses.
