Notepad++ harmful?

I used the installer from here: https://notepad-plus-plus.org/repository/6.x/6.8.3/npp.6.8.3.Installer.exe

 

Anti-Virus for Workstations says "DeepGuard has blocked a harmful application in your computer" when I try to start it. And I also just manually updated the definitions just to be safe. Still declared as harmful.
