Why does SafeWeb not like https://cdburnerxp.se/en/home

I have used CDBurnerXP for years and it even has been updated to work on Windows 10. Not sure why they keep the XP in the name, but why does SafeWeb keep blocking this site?

https:// cdburnerxp . se/ en / home

  I know that some versions have Open Candy, but a few days after the author releases a new version, you can go to his site and pick Other Download Options and avoid the Open Candy. However, SafeWeb will not let you go to his site without telling you it is unsafe. Is there a reason SafeWeb does not like this site?

Seems, there's no change from last time ....

PUA.Downloader <info here>

If you want to go against Norton.  Exclude the Signature = PUA.Downloader

Yes, I know about this and can go to the site anyway. I just wonder if Norton is flagging PUA or a Virus. I ask as once you go to the site I am being told that you CAN d/l the version without PUA.

When I go to link in opening post.  I get full page block and details show PUA.Downloader.
I'm not going past full page block to test d/l version without PUA.

I have used CDBurnerXP  for years also and avoid the Open Candy PUA by downloading the clean version. At least they give you a choice as a lot of other download sites don't.

OK, I will do an image backup (Macrium Free) and then try to get the update WITHOUT  PUA.

Well, this is strange. I disabled Safe Surfing and had the non Open Candy version downloaded. Norton did quarantine it, but I got it back. Then, and this is strange, I ran a custom scan and Norton did not find anything wrong. So, why is it not liking the download but then when I do get it the scan is OK?
