I'm afraid I don't know much about (anti)viruses. According to VirusTotal, the majority of antiviruses don't have any problem with plus_install.exe, but I can definitely understand being uncertain about a downloaded file. We do offer three different ways to acquire/update JJ2+, though, counting the GOG updates, so hopefully another one will work better for anyone experiencing antivirus problems.

yeah it was just windows defender. i also checked the plus_install.exe with avira, kaspersky and malwarebytes - none of these three detected a virus. and downloading it from GOG even windows defender does not detect anything.
