Hi ya'll, I downloaded this: http://guiminer.org/guiminer-scrypt.html and I uploaded it to "Virus Total" and 19 anti-virus programs flagged it as malware, is it safe?

Most miners are detected as viruses as some malware forces your computer to mine, sending the BTC to the malware creator. The miner IS safe assuming you downloaded it onto your own computer.
