I downloaded Creative Cloud from there which I think is the official website:

https://creativecloud.adobe.com/apps/all/desktop?action=install&source=apps&productId=creative-cloud

 

And then when I scanned it on VirusTotal it detected some viruses. Here are the results;

So should I install it? Or what should I do?Screenshot 2022-07-01 031523.png

Your AV is overzealous.  Malwarebytes is infamous for reporting false positives.
