WOW... it just happened AGAIN as I sent you this message... It says...
To Help protect your security, Internet Explorer blocked this site from downloading files to your computer. Click here for options...
(and on the far right is a small symbol with a blue arrow above it that is pointing downward to the symbol... I will not check the options...)
I did a right click on the warning bar and the options are... "Download File..." and "What's the Risk?" and "Information Bar Help"
No garbage... I'm amazed it happened again.
My Norton has blocked things from your site before also... maybe you are unaware of some internal problems with your site.
I right clicked again and then left clicked on "What's the Risk?"
Got This in an Internet Explorer pop up window...
Why does Internet Explorer block some files from being downloaded?
Internet Explorer will block a file from downloading if it appears that you did not request the file. This might happen if a website tries to download files to your computer without your permission or if you requested a file but the download did not start immediately.
Before downloading any file, ask yourself these questions:
- Did you ask for this file?
Did you click a link on a website to start this download, or did the download begin without any action on your part? If you did not start the download, you should be very cautious about the file. If you don't need the file, cancel the download. If you choose to save or run the file, make sure you know what it is for and what it will do to your computer before you proceed.
- Do you trust the website providing the file?
Don't download any file unless you absolutely trust the website or publisher it is from. Click Related Topics for more information about making this decision.
- Do you know what the file is for and what it will do to your computer?
The website providing the file should describe what the file is for and provide any special details you need to know about the file to run it. If this information is not available, be cautious about downloading the file.
What to do when a file is blocked
When a file is blocked, a message will appear on the Information bar. If you are sure that you want to download the file, click the Information bar, and then click Download File. When you are prompted to download the file, read the information in the dialog box very carefully. Make sure the file is from a website you trust.
THAT'S ALL IT SAID... I'M AFRAID to click on "Download File..." JUST TO see what the heck it could be... If you don't know what it is... I'm not gonna risk my computer to find out.
Like I said... I have also received warning from my Norton security in the past when surfing your site... especially when I did a right click on some of your advertizers. Currently I have two ads on my page... one on to from usbank... and one on the right side from Progressive Insurance with that Flo chick pictured on it.
I do not this the ads caused this IE file download warning since I have not clicked anything and the warning just showed up when the page was refreshed after I had clicked SEND with my last comment in this thread.
I Told You this was real... and I'm glad it showed up again so I could prove it.
This is not MALWARE... It's a warning from Internet Explorer that says they have blocked YOUR site from downloading files to my computer.
You guys are obviously unaware of some kind of bug in your system... or is this somehow related to "whatever" normal tracking you guys use. I have also noticed that after being open all day... the tab with your site really takes its time to close when I'm trying to shut off my computer.
I hope you can figure it out and that your site is not infected with something.
