Avast killed my setup

When I installed Gramps 5.1.5 on my W10 VM today, Avast stepped in, and killed the setup because of a ‘dangerous’ libgio DLL. Has anyone else seen this?

I was too lazy to report this to Avast, and removed it instead, and then reinstalled Gramps.

Found the same problem reported in 2020 on the Gramps Bugs maillist. Avast confirmed a false positive for the same library in the 5.1.1 AIO installer.
