Is there any way of writing a game in c++ and distributing it without anti-virus software accusing it of being a virus? I wanted my friend to play the game I made and he said that his computer wouldn't let him open the file. It prevented him with this message -> "Your internet security settings prevented one or more files from being opened." He didn't know which virus protection he had.

Is compiling and distributing a .exe file with the game on it a bad idea? What is the best way to distribute a game?

He doesn't have a compiler or the motivation to install allegro to compile it himself.


P.S. Sorry that the topic title is worded properly. I should have named the topic "How do I distribute a game without being accused of distributing a virus?".
