ESET blocking Microsoft's PC Manager?

I want to try Microsoft's new PC Manager, but ESET Smart Security Premium is blocking both the cloud from where the file is downloaded and the file itself.

I clicked on the Download button on PC Manager's official website pcmanager-en(dot)microsoft(dot)com and ESET's warning popped up:

I ended up not going ahead with the installation. But according to official publications such as the Verge, this is the correct web address to get PC Manager. Is this a false positive?

Thanks

Here they are essp_logs.zip, I saved the last 2 days, since I tried download PC Manager within that timeframe.

Please note that I did not go through with installing PC Manager. When I tried downloading it ESET threw up a warning (image above) and then blocked the saving of the file. I figured it smarter to come here first and ask for advice before disabling protection to install the app.

This is the official website of Microsoft's PC Manager, according to The Verge, Makeuseof, and other online publications: https://pcmanager-en.microsoft.com/ - this is where I went to download the app.

When CCleaner was popular , Microsoft themselves said that it's pointless to have those programs and they will actually harm more than they fix , so they have decided to launch one themselves. But I still find it useless and actually funny thing that ESET AI detected it as Suspicious for it's reasons.. , so whatever is important there is the antivirus where it's already included in Windows

And funny thing is we don't live in times of fixing registry can fasten the PC a little bit , where we used to work on very slow processors , and freeing up storage? , can't we do it manually , or even include it in Windows to help free up storage from temp and update folders etc automatically......

if it was for me I would stay away from this application
