Someone else has reported similar.

Boot into Safe Mode with Networking and install the program and then see how WD reacts when you restart back to normal mode.

It's definitely a false positive as I updated mine this morning and Norton Security didn't bat an eyelid.

My Norton security went through a phase where it was kicking out the .exe and I had to put www.tweaking.com in as an exclusion.

If necessary, you may have to do the same for WD until its Definitions move on.

I assume you are using Win 10 - https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/help/4028485/windows-10-add-an-exclusion-to-windows-defender-antivirus

Kaspersky reported Windows Repair generated a temp file right after I chose "Reboot to Safe Mode"
