The Windows Defender false positive was addressed a few days ago, you should check for Defender definition updates in Windows Update. The "Run anyway" dialog is actually Windows SmartScreen, and that happens with a lot of apps, especially ones with recent updates. It can take a little bit until MS begins to trust it and the prompt goes away.

Defender doesn't seem to like JRWorker at all.

Update Defender's definitions.  Make sure it's configured correctly.
