I am trying to download some files I forgot to grab yesterday and am now getting blocked by chrome saying the downloads are unsafe. I tried to see if I can do anything on my end but apparently it has to be a page owner that fixes it. Not sure if anyone else is having this problem as I just did an update on my laptop last night. The issue seems to be site specific as well, I didn't have problems with my other downloads just my Sims2 downloads from here.

Are you browsing http:// or https:// version of site? You might try using the https version if using http. It might be an issue with some thumbnails from sister site and not an actual safety issue.

Does chrome block the whole page, or just the actual download? I guess we should page @Tashiketh
@Jaded24-7 Could you post a link where this happens too please?

ETA: I installed chrome (bleh) It happens here too:

and https://modthesims.info/d/647732/ga...ydroponics.html

I can't actually find anything on here that will download without the security message. I can click 'keep' though to finish the download.

Tis fixed, thanks for the heads up!

Story books are full of fairy tales, of Kings and Queens, and the bluest skies.

I have had the same issue with Chrome several places. I tick learn more and then they let me download anyway. After all I have a virusprogram and don't download shit.
