WinFixer and ValueClick in the UK

Browsing to winfixer.co.uk we find yet another connection between WinFixer and ValueClick. As you can see clicking the “Download Now” button routes you thru “adfarm.mediaplex.com” (ValueClick)

Notice the TRUSTe symbol (highlighted) … is WinFixer really a member? … well I searched and searched and I could not find WinFixer or any of it other realated sites listed anywhere. Are users being scammed? It appears that ValueClick is willing to associate itself with the WinFixer group at any cost …
