Default Installer - AVG and AVAST alert

Hi all,
Jdownloader 2 installer downloaded from jdownloader.org is being detected by both (AVG, Avast) antiviruses. I am not sure how the installer is supposed to work, but the first step unpacks the archive which amongs the jd web installer includes some other executable file(s). Filename of the suspicious exe file seems to be random (google doesn't know it) and it tryes to contact url **External links are only visible to Support Staff****External links are only visible to Support Staff**. At this point the antivirus popup window shows (Win32:Evo-gen [Susp]). At the same time the installer asks for checking the connection (because its blocked by AV). Instalation can be finished by clicking retry several times. I hope the random exe file just gave up and continued with the web installer itself. Downloaded file seems to be signed by Appwork GmbH on 26.6.2015 and stamped by COMODO Time Stamping Signer. Only other information about this issue I found is on webside **External links are only visible to Support Staff****External links are only visible to Support Staff**. My question is if anyone else has experienced this and if the website informing about the harmfulness of the installer is trustworthy.
Thank you,
Lukas

Small sidenote:
The normal JD2 installers contain adware (which you can DESELECT during installation).
Here are adware free installers:

Do you have the problem with them too?

Thanks for reply,
I know the adware is necessary evil, but I was concered about this specific file. I would like to know if its just false alert or the addware can be harmfull (collecting other than statistical data etc.). There aren't any additional informations other than the link I provided in the message above. Thanks for developing jd, it's the best.

Its a normal false positive about adware. False Positive about being harmfull, True Positive about being adware

Talking Solved in the meantime

I downloaded the jdownloader2 solution and putted the jawaw.exe into the exceptions of the AVAST Web-Check. Now the system runs perfectly!

Default The Solution!

Sorry, that I answer that late, but I overlooked your question, Jiaz. My solution is quite easy:

I just added at the AVAST settings - web protection - exceptions - the file "jdownloder2.exe".
After this, my jdownloader2 works perfectly.

Screenshoot:

I hope you will be lucky too. Otherwise ask Jiaz, he knows a lot more than I do.
