While trying to download adobe reader through chrome, I get a message that the download failed because a virus was detected in the download. I went through the offical website to get to the download page at https://get.adobe.com/reader/, so I know I didn't accidently get it from a third-party website. I included a screen shot to give more details about the virus. Is the another way I can get adobe reader? I'm trying to set up an image for cloning.

There is no virus. Windows Defender needs to update their definitions. This happens once in a while with many applications.
