I would think because it is not digitally signed. See the attached example of a setup program with a digital signature.

Please read this regarding digital signatures. http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc962053.aspx

Here are some videos that I thought were very interesting (introduction, certificates, and portal). It explains some of the risk involved with software that has not been signed.

You are correct. If you don't want it to continue to autosandbox shadowdefender then select "Open normally" and check "Remember my answer for this program". This will add it to an exclusions list located in the FileShield expert settings AutoSandbox tab.

Please see the example that I have attached.
