So i got modelbench to work on a project. but when i double clicked it, it said that the program could harm my P.C.

I am now worried that modelbench could have a virus, can someone help me with this?

No, it doesn't have a virus.   Antivirus software hates everything.

It wasn't my anitvirus, my computer just said so for some reason.

It's because to get your program properly signed for Windows Defender to like it, and that takes a bit of effort that indie developers like David and Nimi don't have the time for. It's completely safe, don't worry. I've been using it for quite a long time and haven't noticed any issues. Plus, David and Nimi aren't the kind of lads who would put a virus in their program.

It's as Rollo said, Windows Defender will usually throw a "Could be potentially dangerous, From an unknown publisher" with a "Run Anyway" option in a pop when it detects you trying to run an unsigned and recently downloaded file.
Doesn't mean it picked up a virus/malware by any means, just that Defender couldn't "Verify" the validity of the file in a sense.

I also uploaded the ZIP and EXE to a public virus scanner for you aswell:
