I hope that this is a false alarm, but the developers should be informed about it.
Ok Thanks Rene, I've reported it.
Many of us here have installed 4.0.5 64 bit (who uses 32 bit these days?) and not noticed any adware activities, so I think this is almost certainly a false positive. Nothing detected by Avast by the way.
indeed, such error can be related to antivirus. Avast is the most progressive, in my opinion
