Safe downloads being blocked RRS feed

  • Question

  • Attachments and downloads that I know are safe are being blocked because they are being identified as containing a virus.  Can you tell me how to stop this from happening?  I right clicked on file, but continue to get message:  Scarb_Age_Gender.xls contained a virus and was deleted.

    You need to make adjustments tot the installed malware application.  What are you using?

    TO be absolutely certain this file does not contain malware I suggest you run an online scan before downloading or making adjustments to your malware settings. 

    Just because you are getting the file from a trusted source doesn't mean they cant be infected.

  • Hello,

    I'd ask in the Virus and Malware forum or the Windows forum on Microsoft Community.
