Hi when I'm trying to run an exe file from a software I created, on another computer the antivirus software refuses to run it. Say's it's from an unknown author. Why is that and how can I fix this. Thanks Scanmaster_K

Sounds like that "antivirus" is tie-my-hands-behind-my-back-so-I-don't-do-anything-stupid-ware. While not necessairly a bad thing, it will depend entirely on the "antivirus" in question the method required to have it allow your program to run.

Incredibly irritating when I'm working, but great for when the rest of the family is. :)

You should be able to set a whitelist of programs somewhere or click an "allow" button to let it run. If not, you may just have to disable your AV while you're running it (or maybe just during launch).
