I found that out the other week too.
Try downloading it through IE whilst in XP-Mode, of course the validation check will happen there and it will pass. Strange bug IMO

Aaaanyway, my recommendation is to use MSE, i've used it from Beta and have to say that, i'm very impressed.

One thing that i dont like about F Secure is that there is no Pause button during scan.

nah... it doesn't really stop downloads... unless the URL where you downloaded it is on the blacklist... once the file lands in to you're hard-drive it scans it... if its a virus its gone if not then its all good =)... but it doesn't kill it while transit (DLing);P
