I host a windows software website. I noticed that new version of Google Chrome checks downloaded files presumably for viruses and it takes about 10-20 seconds to complete.

Is there any way to white list our software to bypass that check or make it faster? The file is about 49 MB in size.

We ended making a web installer - a small app that downloads and run full installer, similar to installer of Google Chrome itself. That web installer is just 600kb in size and this solved the problem for us.
