@Tobias1998: Can you confirm which antivirus software you are using?  And also which version and build of Windows you are using please?  You should be able to get that by typing "winver" from the Windows search bar.  Mine is Windows 10 Version 1909, for example:





Piriform Homepage - [CCleaner - CCleaner Mac - CCleaner Android - CCleaner Browser - Defraggler - Recuva - Speccy - Kamo] - Product Support

We believe this to be a false positive.

Microsoft was incorrectly blocking the installer is no longer doing so. Currently everything is clean on VirusTotal.

We have no evidence of any virus. Let us know if the problem persists, but it should have resolved itself already or will do very soon. I was unable to reproduce this Chrome block myself.
