Is anyone else having trouble downloading today? Chrome has taken upon itself to block EVERY design I've tried to download - claiming (including designs from all the Cute sister sites) "dangerous, so Chrome has blocked it."

McAfee is not finding anything wrong - because they haven't been able to get that far.

I've tried switching to Explorer and they aren't "playing" at all!

Any advice you can give me would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

ps: meanwhile I'm going back to bed 🙄😏

My husband had to go into my settings somewhere to fix cute site and also one other--not sure what he did though, turned off some setting I think he said or to allow.

Yes same was happening to me. It looks as if Chrome does not understand embroidery files and thinks they are malicious and blocks them. I used Firefox. Hopefully Chrome will figure it out

I noticed that zipfiles downloaded Ok, but the moment it was a PES...etc..... it would get blocked. Also I wonder if it had something to do that it was the brother site in Germany. Who knows

Yep, we are such a subversive group, LOL!. Downloaded with Internet Explorer and had no problem. All the virus scans I ran came up with nothing.

I just had to do an update for windows (I guess) so I went back and now the designs do download. 😊😊😊
