i tried to test my chat app by sending a copy of it via email to a couple of friends of mine. it was a simple program that used winsock to send "hello" over the internet to the other app. both of my friends antivirus programs deleted it as soon as they got it. does anyone know why, or how to prevent it?

Usually you can just rename it to "myexe.txt" or something to get it past the AV software (or putting it in a zip works, too)

If I had my way, I''d have all of you shot!
