Hi Dway17,

In your VT report 1 engine flagged it as malicious. Cylance says unsafe.

Normally curl.exe is found to be "above board", but not under all circumstances.
The malicious variant is flagged as Trojan.Agent/Generic (a generic find).

Also read here: https://www.freefixer.com/library/file/curl.exe-70424/

One could check using freefixer or MBAM.

Wait for a final verdict from avast team, as they are the only ones to come and unblock.

Have a nice day,

polonus
