How to fix Download Interrupted:Blocked?

  • Not sure if this is the right forum, so sorry in advance if it isn't.
    Since a few days, all my downloads fail to finish, displaying "Interrupted: Blocked". I disabled all extensions, to no effect. Can anybody tell me what causes this error? Any help would be much appreciated.

  • Anti-virus or firewall interrupting or blocking the downloads ?.

  • Disabeling Anti-Virus and Windwos Firewall did not fix it. I'm using a new router (Fritz Box7490) since few days, but I don't see anything in the router options disabeling downloads.
    Downloading files with other browsers is working fine, it's just Opera that goes "Interrupted: Blocked" on me :(.

  • Wich donwloads? over FTP, over HTTP, Torrent?
    very big files?

  • HTTP. So far I only tried rather small files (only a couple of KBs or MBs), but I assume it's the same for all files. The download always get canceled right at the end, with said error.

  • Which Opera version?

    And you have Opera Turbo activated? May conflict.

  • Opera 26.0.1656.60, Windows 64bit. Turbo was deactivated (activating however did not fix the problem either).

  • Windows XP. Web pages loaded fine, but every time I downloaded a program the download completed, and then instead of installing said "Interupted: Blocked. I have now identified this is being caused by Opera's popup blocker.

    Right click on Opera in the start menu.Select >Internet Properties. Select Privacy page. Untick "Turn on pop up blocker. restart computer. Programs can be downloaded again!

    If you can't open .msi files go to for clear instructions.... Run > Open type cmd Command prompt screen appears... type msiexec /unregister press return type msiexec /regserver press return and restart computer... problem solved!

  • Yeah, I have it too...but I only download podcasts from TWIT.TV, and [so far] right-click and 'resume' and the download finishes.

    Dunno why; 'WEFT' {Wrong, Every Flippin' Time}

  • Still happening in 2017 -frustrating as it was a zip of multiple files and now I have to figure out what was in it.
