Cannot download any *.exe files

  • Hello...

    I cannot download any *.exe files, while other things work well: music, archives, videos...

    I am getting the error at the end of download: Antivirus has detected a virus. The problem is I have no antivirus 😢

    Please help me!

  • Are you sure you have no anti-virus?
    IIRC Windows Defender is included and enabled by default on later versions of Windows.

  • Well first, if it doesn't relate to Opera, it goes to the Lounge.
    Otherwise you should state your Opera version and system you're on.

  • Do you also get the anti-virus message if you try to download using another browser, or only with Opera?
