The copy you can download from this website does not contain any malware or virus. I just made a clean check of aren.exe : https://www.virustotal.com/en/file/90c9bceb3e946 3384da211b959b97e3b4713d39fc19659bb059fb fbc3b98a7c9/analysis/1544605588/
(don't mind the Cyren scanner, they don't respond to my emails asking them to remove false positives).

Windows Defender detects false positives in Advanced Renamer from time to time. The reason might be that Advanced Renamer changes files and most malware detection systems find that suspicious. They usually remove false positives fast when I contact them.

Make sure to only download the program from this website and make sure your system isn't infected from another source. All executables downloaded from advancedrenamer.com are digitally signed. If you right click the file, choose properties and select "Digital signature" you can verify that the file is signed and hasn't been changed.
