It seems that Google, in their infinite wisdom, have started marking some of our trainers and files as "malicious" through their phishing and malware protection option in the Chrome web browser.

Our current recommendation is to use a different browser that does not falsely mark our files as malicious. This includes Internet Explorer, Firefox and Opera.

You may also choose to contact Google and let them know that our files are safe and to remove this false positive from their database.

Lastly, you can go into the settings for Chrome, choose "Show advanced settings..." at the bottom and then uncheck "enable phishing and malware protection".

I have already contacted them about the missing "Keep" option.

And said to them, what use is your browser when people can't get legit files that are flagged as a false positive?

Their answer, this is in the wrong section *which it wasn't* and moved it. And it was closed.

Good job Google, Good Job.

I've seen a lot of similar complaints from reputable tech sites and companies that have been flagged with no resolution. I don't expect anything here, but we can at least try.

It's their silly extension policy they are doing, instead of giving you the choice of if you want to be caught with malicious files or not we will just stop it.... and everything else.

It is the dumbest thing ever.

Its like Microsoft telling people they can't play xvid vids on Windows OS's cause of an exploit, so to protect them you can't watch videos on your PC.

First thing people would do is go to another OS. Like wise with Chrome people are going to Firefox or Safari.

You can actually "recover" the items. Just go into your download options, and click on "recover download.

If you are lucky.

But it is still damn annoying, and alienating people's right to choice.
