Way to fix "generic" variant detections? (wrong detections constantly)

It's getting annoying that anti-virus keeps destroying binaries built by myself from my own code (both at work and at home, different computers and different code etc.) when it only shows as some "generic" variant of something.

Is there way disable that somehow ?? 

Either make sure it's something to cleanup or don't do anything about: these half-assed generic detections are a major pain to deal with constantly when they're usually wrong anyway.

Sure there is.

But what makes you software behave or look like malware?

What is detected?

Did you submit samples?

Please open a support request!
