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?

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:
