Adaware Antivirus kills MCUXpresso IDE

When I try to launch a newly installed MCUXpresso on a Windows 7 Pro 64-bit PC, the file: MCUXpressoIDE_10.1.1_606\ide\mcuxpressoide.exe is killed by the latest version of Adaware Antivirus 12.3.909.11573 (Bitdefender engine and definition files), so the IDE is not loaded. It may be a false positive, but I don't want to bed on that and switch Adaware off every time MCUXpresso should be used - especially because MCUXpresso seems to contain 3rd party software and is not downloaded from an NXP server, but from a general purpose download site, which may be infected.

 

Any ideas what to do?
