It's a false-positive, there is no malware in the offer-enabled installer.

Thanks for the quick reply. Now i just need to find a way to allow AVG to allow the install. I suspected a false-positive when no-one else reported the same problem. ;)

Try to download your bundle from here: https://filezilla-project.org/download.php?show_all=1

These are the non-offer-enabled packages.
