My program is being blocked by my antivirus software (AVG)

I recently created a program that I've been working on that downloads files. It's been working fine until a user is using AVG. It seems that in order to fix the issue, AVG's "Email Protection" must be disabled. I've already tried adding either my program or the JRE to an exceptions list. It doesn't work.

I've been downloading content through a BufferedInputStream obtained from a URL. Users have told me that the download process starts fine, but freezes a few minutes in. The download progress is shown with a JProgressBar.

Is there any way to avoid this?
