.exe reported as containing a virus

I have my files on a file server (a Netgear Readynas) which has some built-in virus software. It periodically reports that some of my .exe files compiled with Intel Parallel Studio XE 2013 have a virus threat. A typical message might look like this:

Antivirus scanner found a threat (Win.Dropper.Kovter-7489194-0) in the file xxx.exe. Please delete the infected file soon.

I am sure the compiler/linker does not have a virus, but is there anything I can do during compling and linking to prevent this message?

Many antivirus programs automatically suspect newly created EXEs, thinking that they were made by "dropper" malware. See if you can exclude your development area from being scanned.
