    thinBasic - Safe or Not?

    Hi.

    I just came across a reference in a VB6 thread here to 'thinBasic'.
    Curious, I found and downloaded it from the developers' site.
    Cautious, I scanned the installer for viruses (as always - with Kaspersky) and a virus was reported and the installer deleted.
    I submitted to 'Virus Total' and 12 of their 68 checkers reported viruses, Kaspersky database lists it as Unsafe.

    Web searches reveal historic reports of virus, but at least one seemingly legitimate poster here seems to be using it?

    Question, is it safe or not?

    TIA
    Mike

    Can't say I've ever heard of it.
