My program is recognized as a potential virus. VB6 INNO setup

I have an Inno setup program that installs my vb6 application.  The problem when a user installs the program is that the Windows computer or virus protection software always recognized it as a malicious or suspect software.  How can I stop Windows from doing that?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

What do I submit?  The setup file or the application or both?
Vadim RappCommented:
Whatever is detected. Install 2-3 of those antivirus products, they usually have free one, and see what is detected.

Then you can use virustotal.com to check if any of your executables will be detected.

But, as David Johnson said, consider code-signing your installation and executable(s)
