Windows security is stopping me from downloading plugins

Recommended Posts


I am a newbie, but am fairly computer literate. I am trying to download logins. On some of them I get the pop up that says windows has stopped the download because of a potential threat. I am running vista. I went into the security suite, and basically turned off all security, as I am not connected to the internet at this moment. But I have the same issues. This does not happen on all of them though. Any suggestions?

No, I was wondering if you'd fallen for one of those popup ads that claims to be antivirus software that has "found problems on your PC, click here to CLEAN UP NOW" or whatever.

No...it is actually in Windows... I figured it out though...I had one of those viruses before, and they are annoyingly hard to get rid of. Thanks for the responses though!
