[Q] Kingoroot - malware?

Hi

I just downloaded this app from the CNET link (following the link on www kingoapp.com/ android-root . htm) on the basis that CNET is reputable and that the app is likely to be safe.

Upon running the installer it connects to the internet and then downloads an app. My antivirus kicks in saying that the installer contains Pua.Adware.Proinstall

Has anyone experienced reviewed the rooting app and considered it safe? (I know that they issued an explanation, but not clear that they ever followed it up and fixed the issues that led to the initial banning here)
