Getting rid of "Windows don't recognise"-popup?

Hi!

I have a .NET-application made in Visual Basic 2005 that works perfectly.
The only problem is that whenever I run the application on another computer
than my own Windows warns the user and tells him that it's not sure wheter to
trust the author of the program or not. You then have to click OK to run the
program. How can I get rid of this very un-professional-looking warning?

Thanks in advance!

Well, this is all part of the security mechanisms. If you really want to get
rid of these warnings for good, you might want to strong name and sign your
assemblies with AuthentiCode.

How do I do that? Do I have to pay anything?

Well, strong naming doesn't cost anything, look here,
http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/lib...8b(VS.80).aspx. However, you
still need someone else (a trusted authority) to vouch for you as a
publisher and that's where Authenticode comes in, look here,
http://www.microsoft.com/technet/arc....mspx?mfr=true
and here http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms537359.aspx.

Unfortunately, it is not cheap, sorry.

Now, you don't mention how and wher to you're distributing your application,
which might mean you have other options?
