I am an amateur developer and trying to make a exe file for windows that can be downloaded from the internet, or sent to my colleagues via email, but whenever it's opened it comes up with two warnings on my machine. The first is the standard windows warning, do not open random exe files from the internet, and the second is Norton security.
There seem to be these issues:
- It doesn't have a digital certification.
- Unknown publisher, internet origin.
- Originated very recently.
- Very few downloads (in the Norton community).
How can I stop these things from discouraging me from running the program? The program does nothing malevolent, not remotely. Do I need to buy some kind of certificate?
