Default Win32/Appwork.A virus?

ESET detects this "unwanted application" in the Jdownloader 2 adfree version. I've read the several threads that indicate this is a false positive. This ESET alert occurs both on an older (2016) download as well as the current download from http://jdownloader.org/jdownloader2.

Color me cautious...just want to confirm this is a false positive before I override ESET to install.

JDownloader installer contains optional adware that you can decline/skip during installation. There is no hidden/forced installation. You can also use the adware free installer (your link) that is clean but may be flagged because it shares the same installer logic and code sign certificate. It's a false positive.

In case you want to know more about this, please don't hesitate and ask
