I downloaded the file Photoshop_Set-Up.exe from adobe, and virustotal detected "malicious_confidence_69% (D)". It's a false positive?

What URL did you download from?  Which version Photoshop are you trying to download. The current offline installer is not Photoshop_Set-Up.exe Download Creative Cloud apps

I got a warning from Frontier Secure when I went to the Adobe.com site to download the free Photoshop CC trial (https://creative.adobe.com/products/download/photoshop?promoid=61PM825Y&mv=other). It said that:

DeepGuard has blocked an application because it is not commonly used:

Application: photoshop_set-up.exe

Reason: Rare application

Reputation: Unknown

Popularity: Rare

Detection: Suspicious:W32/Malware!DeepGuard.pag

I don't know why this is happening, but I decided not to take a chance until I know more about this issue.

You should report that to Frontier Secure have them check it out to verify that they know Adobe  Photoshop is a rare application.

That's not saying it's a virus. Read the reason closely.
