Security Warning -> fixed in SVN/1.6.4

When running the VirtualBox-1.6.2-Win_x86.msi The Security Warning dialog box comes up and says that the Publisher is "innotek GmbH". At the bottom it says "While files from the internet can be useful, this file can potentially harm your computer. Only run software from publishers you trust."

The Publisher should be "Sun Microsystems" so that more people will recognize that name and hince be more likely to "trust" the software. Also if the person has downloaded any other Sun products and deselected the "Always trust software from Sun" then they won't even have to see this dialog box. Improving the first 15 minute experience.
