I have fired a false alarm report to Microsoft regarding this incident. AVG Free on my machine does not report such a warning.

Let's see how Microsoft responds.

Hi, can you update your Windows Defender and try again? It should have been resolved right now.

Downloaded and ran with no complaints from Defender. Thanks.
