Google Chrome Blocking Downloads!

Post by High Priestess » 17 Aug 2019 14:05

Every time I try to download a new or even older game this is the message I get. No chance of an override - please help!

Google Chrome blocks downloads
Chrome automatically blocks harmful downloads that try to cause problems on your computer, such as:

Giving you viruses
Leaking your private data
Changing your browser and computer settings
Adding unwanted extensions or toolbars to your browser
Why the download was blocked
Your file download may have been blocked for one of two reasons:

We think it might be a malicious, unwanted or uncommon file.
Malicious: You tried downloading malware.
Unwanted: You tried downloading a deceptive piece of software. This program, disguised as a helpful download, may actually make unexpected changes to your computer.
Uncommon: You tried to download an unfamiliar and potentially dangerous piece of software.
We've found that the website from which you tried to download the file has been known to distribute malware.

Yes it does. Google has decided to replace antiviruses as they were getting too soft...

You have to use another browser when you download levels. That's it. It's been talked about and there's nothing much we can do about it. But most other browsers will do. I, for instance, download levels with Avast Secure Browser which is really a laugh when you think of it.

Cheers. :)

I still love Google in general. :D

Thanks for your answer. I had seen Phil's message, but my case is different, as the download is not even initiated, let alone completed, so I cannot rename the file, for no file was generated.
if your site looks like this
if you look down in the left side
then click on show all in the right side
and you should see this site
just click keep dangerous file
