If at all possible, compile your exe's as 64-bit. When compiled as 32-Bit, I get as many as 12-18 virus detections from VirusTotal. The exact same script, compiled as 64-Bit, only has 2-3 detections. Almost all Windows computer systems these days are 64-Bit operating systems. Take NOTICE: special considerations are required for the Windows Registry, Windows\System* files and ProgramFiles* directories.
