Request McAfee Whitelist a Document



I have created an Excel spreadsheet application that I hope to sell to Retirees on my website YourRetirementFunds.ca


To prevent piracy, I implemented a software called XLS Padlock that changes Excel spreadsheets to .exe formats.  This resulted in popup warnings from antivirus software when the document is downloaded.  To overcome this, I purchased a Sectigo EV Code Signing Certificate and have been advised to contact antivirus software companies and ask them to whitelist my application.


I would appreciate it if you could either do this or provide the contact information for someone in your company that I can discuss this with.


Thank you for your help with this.
