McAfee Internet Security thinks my own application is a virus

Hello,

I'm developing a small application that needs to do some changes in the OS. Because of that, Virus Scan things that it's a virus, and everytime I try to compile it, it's deleted by the AV software. Is there any way I can tell my AV that it's a trusted file and therefore it shouldn't remove it? Thank you.

Is it detected as a PUP by any chance or as an Artemis detection?  If PUP it can be told to ignore it but if the latter or a general detection then you'd best follow the instructions here:  https://community.mcafee.com/thread/2016
