I've noticed the Windows Defender false positive issue (Defender tried deleting the file that was a build straight out of Unity, not just one downloaded from the internet, which is insane). I've sent the file in for review; hopefully they'll get it fixed soon.

Once you download the .zip file, just right click it, and then click on "Extract all...". On the window that pops up, click the "Extract" button and it will create a folder with the new game files. You don't have to do anything with the old version files. If you don't want the old version, you can just delete it. Just be sure to keep the new version and old version folders separate.
Nice video! One correction though, the game was made in a two week period, not 24 hours (There's no way I could have made that in 24 hours, not even if I used all of that time to work on the game!). It's interesting to see your interpretation, lots of stuff I never really thought about! Interestingly, you talk about how it's relatable to public school in some ways, but I was actually homeschooled my entire life up until college. I guess I got my inspiration from seeing public school in TV shows, rather than experiencing it myself.
Hmm... The only other thing I can recommend is deleting all the game files, and to just try redownloading it and re-extracting it. If that doesn't work, sadly I can't do anything else to help. :(
It's a false positive. This happens quite frequently with new programs. It's probably something in the Unity files that it thinks looks similar to an actual virus, so it reports it as a safety precaution. To check, I just put another, perfectly safe Unity game into that website and it also reported that it has a virus. So again, no, the game doesn't have a virus, you're just getting a false positive because the game is unfamiliar with the program.
I dunno, I came up with the name years ago... I was trying to come up with the main character for a comic, and I made it a bald guy, so Baldi was probably just the first name that came to mind. :P
You cannot run the game from the .zip folder. You need to extract all the files out of the .zip folder, and make sure all those files are in the same folder! The easiest way to do this is to right click on the BALDI_1.2.2_Windows.zip and select "Extract all..." and then the "Extract" button on the window that comes up. This will create a folder as the same name as the .zip file, where the game should run.

Just want to throw another big thanks out to everyone who's played the game! There's a ton of comments, so instead of just commenting "thanks!" on all of them I figured this would be easier. :P
I have a fairly large update planned, though with school wrapping up and other stuff going on I haven't much time to work on it. I won't give any estimates (Because I am absolutely awful at that), but I definitely will release an update some time.
