I personally use the latest version in a professional development role and it has never flagged in symantec or mcafee. Trust your gut here. but i scan the server regularly. If you are truly cautious we invite you to go to github and download the source and compile it yourself.

A scan of the installer from the AutoHotkey website, by VirusTotal, shows 0 of 69 different Anti-Virus softwares showing a detection.

What web browser or Anti-Virus software are you using? Maybe by sharing what those are, people can clarify what the issue might be.
Also, did you download it from the official AutoHotkey or GitHub websites or somewhere else?

If it's compressed make sure they are scanned first and after extraction scan again. Make sure you have a strong AV that protect you online.
