Hello,

Sorry for the trouble! Where did you download LICEcap? If you downloaded it from our site, there's no way it could contain anything else but a screen capture software. Also, did you get any ads displayed or what makes you so sure it actually contains some "payload"?

If you downloaded LICEcap from our site, you probably fell victim of overzealous "heuristic search". If you're dealing with software professionally, you should be familiar with false positives like that.

Edit: here's the latest Virustotal check on licecap123-install.exe from today:

Only SUPERAntiSpyware tested it positive (of 48 scanners), it's certainly a false positive. You may want to inform the makers of SUPERantiSpyware about that.

Edit #2: Should be resolved in the next SASW database update.
