It's entirely possible I'm being profoundly stupid (or, at least, ignorant) here, but...

I produced my installer at the command line (using NSIS). Tested it in my development environment. No warnings.

SSH'ed it up to a server. Downloaded it by way of a browser (Chrome; HTTPS). At least three warnings, saying basically "This is likely malware; DON'T RUN THIS".

Is there anyway *I*, as the developer, can do something such that the *user* doesn't experience this? Advise welcomed.
