  1. Like so many others, I get this screen when I try to go to a download screen. I use this page pretty frequently. Is there a way to exclude this screen from being blocked??

    • use adblocker (if your using chrome)if you are having trouble downloading it or dont know how to go to youtube on a tutorial on downloding it

  2. This is bizarre. Got the huge red warning page but the details revealed that there had not been any bad software on the site for the last 90 days… also if the malware is drive-by, e.g. installs without me doing anything through the browser, then surely Google Chrome, being the browser, is going to not allow that?! Turned off. Bunch of nonsense.

  3. Is there a way to allow a specific url, or web page, to be exempt from Google Safe Browsing?
    Is there a way to add a web page or a domain url to some kind of exempt list, within the chrome settings, that would stop google safe browsing from continually bringing up that red screen on a page that you visit often?

    • I was looking for the same thing but don't believe there is. To be safe and protect your CPU use Malwarebytes..It give you excellent protection and removal. It works well with Google Chrome and there is a free version and advanced version you can pay for. Both work well

  4. Also, if you click 'details' on the red warning screen shown above, you can then opt to continue to the risky site without turning off phishing and malware protection overall …
