EDIT: This is, admittedly, a bit off topic, but I figured someone here would know the answer to this:

Anybody know of a freeware screen recording utility that doesn't come with a malware/virus payload? I've tried downloading several and my antivirus has blocked every one, informing me that they contain various horrifying things.

I only need to make ONE screen recording, so I'd rather not pay for something, but I'd also rather not get my computer(s) infected. Any suggestions?

Thanks...

I've got CamStudio and had no issues. ESET Smart Security is pretty thorough. If you have an nVidia video card, ShadowPlay is probably already on your system.

Thanks, this got me what I needed! Now, I get to run a virus scan to get rid of the malware that the other package installed. Ugh.

You must have downloaded a different version of CamStudio than I did. I tried their 2.7 install from two different sources, the first was blocked by my Norton antivirus, the second loaded me up with ad-spewing crapware which I'm still removing.

Evidently.
