Opera developer x64 blocking download .exe

  • All the latest versions of opera has been blocking all my downloads of exes. It's even blocking opera updates from the ftp.

    Why? 🙂

  • I know that Opera now shows a warning for potentially dangerous files when downloading them but it doesn't block the download.

    Check extensions and softwares like AV or any antimalware.

  • well, it does not block other extensions than exe, and since ex. maxthon can download exe files i guess its a opera only problem :s

  • Well, i can say that i don't have such problem here on Windows 10.

    Does it happens with all exe files from any site?

  • yes. but i guess it has worked for a wile until recently (always breaks after updates and stays that way). i guess a total reinstall of opera will work. I think this has something to do with a chrome functions (like safe download or something)
