    Windows 8 SmartScreen warning messages appearing

    I have created a code signed self extracted installer using 7 zip and upload that installer to website for download. I can download the file from machine but the issue is that I am getting a smart screen error while executing from the windows 8 machine. I have already applied code signing certificate for the 7 zip self extracted file. But why this message occurring . How can I avoid this message for other users?
    I am attaching the screen shot of the smart screen error.
