Default Virus alert ProScan 12.7

Hello I was attempting to download the ProScan 12.7 when I was notified of the file being infected with a virus.
I have included a screenshot for reference. Anyone else run across this issue? Is there another download available that is clean?

It's a false positive. Since that's the newest version, not many users have installed it, so your anti-virus does not recognize it.

I had a false positive on the new Whistler EZ-Scan software for the same reason. Too new to have a history, so my antivirus (Norton Internet Security) suggested blocking it. I overrode that and told the program it was a trusted file. (Norton did not squawk over the ProsScan update.)

Subsequent system scans did not indicate any concerns for either file.

It's a false positive. Interesting Win Defender will report this when downloading with Edge. Chrome downloads and installs fine.

This problem just started about a day or two ago so MS must of just added a new virus to the definitions. It's been reported.
