Dave's Personal Site - Download Problems?


Note, this page exists to help people accessing my old site location which has the certificate problems. If you see this message, you are on my new site location, and should not be having these problems. Please let me know if you are!


Are you having trouble downloading files from this site?

Google/Chrome and perhaps other browsers sometimes block downloads from this site, claiming they are "malicious".

I assure you this is not the case. It does not happen on all my computers, but does on some of them. You can check all my download files with my DDFC program (available here).

I asked the guy who gives me the web space, and he says he is missing a certificate that Google/Chrome wants to see on the site, and gets this all the time.

I have found a way to bypass this. In Chrome, click the Chrome menu near the top right corner, select "Settings" to bring up the settings screen and then click "Show advanced settings..." which is a little tab at the bottom.

This will add some settings options. Under "Privacy" uncheck the box "Protect you and your device from dangerous sites".

After that you should be able to download my files. You may want to turn it back on after you have done so.
