Hey Guys. I researched this because I also had a failed download due to a virus for 2.1 64 bit here is the data. I suggest a virus scan on your end before dismissing the report:

This is weird.
We're downloading the same file from the same website.
Kaspersky says it's safe.
The software scans, No virus can be found.

That is weird.
I am running the latest Windows Defender defs here on Win 10 64 bit version 1903.
What I can say is that an up to date win 10 64 machine won't even let the file on to the machine.
It will reject the file on download.
This happens on both my laptop and main system.

See: answers.microsoft.com/en-us/protect/foru...d3-9d82-14b5b22fc1fc
Windows Defender false positives
Hello,

Our company produces software protection solutions. One of our technologies protects *.exe and *.dll files by making the program code encryption (obfuscating). Such solutions are called "packers". The problem is: Windows Defender on Windows 10 (embedded, home etc.) marks the protected software as a virus (Trojan). And of course there are no any maleware inside the application. So how is it possible to avoid false positives. We have already use IEEE software taggant system but, as I see, it does not work with Windows Defender.

I sent the file to Microsoft.
And they admitted that the virus detection was wrong.

We have removed the detection. Please follow the steps below to clear cached detection and obtain the latest malware definitions.

1. Open command prompt as administrator and change directory to c:\Program Files\Windows Defender
2. Run “MpCmdRun.exe -removedefinitions -dynamicsignatures”
3. Run "MpCmdRun.exe -SignatureUpdate"

Alternatively, the latest definition is available for download here: www.microsoft.com/en-us/wdsi/definitions

Thank you for contacting Microsoft.

It's all right, turn off the alarms, get everybody back to work. ;)

Still an issue with Win7 64-bit. Tried to update virus definitions but didn't work.
