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 www.howtogeek.com 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.
