    It's always best to get a download from the developer's website.
    I'm still not sure where you got your download from,but here is the link for AVG Antispyware.Click "Try" at the right side of the grey box with the prices and stuff.

    Yes.It should be safe.
    Vba32 flags it with paranoid heuristics.That's likely a false positive.
