Antivirus software often flag indie games as having malware/viruses because they haven't been downloaded many times and so are considered untrustworthy. The VN itself is perfectly fine. The best thing to do would be to mark the game as an exception in your antivirus program so you can play it. If you don't want to do that then e-mail me privately at ebihimes@gmail.com so we can sort something out.
