How to Stop Chrome From Blocking Downloads?

by Monica Harper Creative Writer

Blocking unwanted or unknown websites can be troublesome, but it is a relatively easy task to do if you know how to stop Chrome from blocking downloads. One of the most important things you can remember when attempting to block downloads is not to make sure you have the right website. Many websites are incorrectly categorized by Chrome and may actually cause problems. There are a few simple steps you can take to avoid this type of situation.

How to Stop Chrome from Blocking Downloads

First, if you're not sure whether or not you have a dangerous website, don't visit it. It might seem harmless, but visiting a potentially harmful web page could easily expose your computer to malicious scripts or software that could open the door to dangerous programs on your computer. If you know for sure you have to visit a site, try not to click on any of the buttons or download files until you absolutely know you're there. Blocking downloads can prevent you from accidentally downloading a program that could damage your computer. This is one reason why you should always be careful about what you're trying to download.

The second step in blocking downloads is to make sure your security settings are working properly. The security section of your Internet Explorer settings will appear with a symbol that looks like a cross. If you see this symbol, you'll need to raise the security setting to its highest level. When you're done raising the security section of your Internet Explorer settings, you can be confident that Chrome will not accidentally load a harmful program onto your computer.

The third step in blocking downloads from dangerous websites is to visit a website that offers the right-click option for blocking downloads. When you click the "block" button on the right-click menu, you'll be taken to a page where you can select the link or windows resource you want to block. It's very important that you pick the correct link or window resource because if you pick the wrong option, you may inadvertently block a legitimate file or program. You don't want to risk the safety of your computer and personal information by trusting a free tool or website that doesn't offer the right-click option.

The final step in blocking downloads from specific file types is to visit a website that offers the option of a free scan. Once you've downloaded and opened the tool or software, you'll be able to determine the type of file that's causing problems with your system. Some files, such as music or movie files, can infect your computer with viruses or spyware. Other common file types, including PDF, text, and binary documents, can cause problems when you attempt to run an application or file.

Now that you know how to stop Chrome from blocking downloads, you need to find a trusted source of protection. A trusted source includes any program or software that offers the option to unblock downloads. For example, there are programs offered by computer security companies that can help you gain access to the unblock button if you have visibly blocked it with your browser. You can also purchase programs that can provide you with a way to unblock any file or application if you trust the company that developed it. These programs are widely available and you can find them easily online.
