McAfee Site Advisor red flags core temp when I try to download it. Should I continue?

Some AV software flag the installer as a virus, which is a false positive.
You can continue, or you can use the standalone version in "More downloads"

It's not a false positive. The installer is loaded with spyware and malware.
