Just recentlu( the last week) when I try to download, the message comes up that Chrome is blocking my download. I am a subscriber with a premium account and never had this happen before. Any advice?

The same thing is happening to me, too. Thanks for the links, Merry60. I hope there's a way to whitelist this site with Chrome. What a PITA.

Whitelists won't help since Chrome is blocking files it believes to be infected, rather than a site it believes to be infected. I suggest you get a normal antivirus (AVG, Avira, even Windows' default one will do just fine) and disable Chrome's broken safe browsing.

Well, I understand if Chrome blocks .exe, .rar, etc files but blocking .ePub files is too much.
Disabling its useless "safe" browsing.

It's not only Chrome doing the blocking. Ditto for Microsoft Edge. I'm wondering if the files themselves have been hijacked in some way. File sizes don't always match up between what is posted with the title here and what is claimed by the file locker site. After one download, Edge did a security scan which failed and it then blocked the file.

Edge and Chrome are not full-fledged antiviruses and are often wrong. As I mentioned before, any real antivirus will be vastly superior to what Chrome and Edge can offer, including free options like AVG and Avira. You can also manually scan files on virustotal.com, which will run the files through a lot of other antiviruses and give you each of their results.
