McAfee SiteAdvisor vs. AVG LinkScanner

I was looking for some great christmas wallpapers. Siteadvisor and linkscanner were turned on when I came across this... Is linkscanner fooling me?

Linkscanner only scans the page for activate threads.
Their are no Activate Threats on those pages That Mcafee said was unsafe.

BUT the files may be infected. Linkscanner doesnt scan files, Filescanner does.

Honestly, I think both SUCK. Use WOT:
