Assuming you downloaded Trixx from Sapphire directly it is indeed a false positive. Tick the button with the red arrow that says "ignore".

Comodo tends to do that quite often... It's probably a false positive if the installer is properly signed with digital signature.

if the installer is properly signed with digital signature.
thats what you need to look for.

if you can, report back to your antivirus vendor that it's a false positive.

based on that report, the suspicious is based on "Creates system services or drivers". which it what it does to communicate with hardware.
