WebCompanion is an optional offer that can be given during installation. It does not download or install anything unless user gives permission. This offer is only shown during a new installation, and only to tiny percentage of users. It is also a legitimate piece of software.

To summarize. You have absolutely nothing to worry about. The installer is completely clean. The "adware" detection is about an OPTIONAL extra that is only installed after giving explicit permission.
