Chrome does not like downloading files

Chrome hates me when I download a file, say Windows 98 SE. It says:

BlaBlaBla.7z can't
be downloaded securely


and it has a discard button which is forced. I have to click the up arrow and click 'Keep'. Why the heck Google!

Can an admin fix this?

    Yeah I heard that IE 85 now has an aversion to downloading from http sites when they're led to them from https sites.

    it will be very difficult for us to fix Google. And the antitrust claims against them that I've heard about deal with Android, not Chrome itself.
  • The fix is to use a better browser, something other than Chrome. I would recommend sending in a complaint to Google to get it fixed.

    It's not a bug. It's a feature.

  • In the year 2020, the word "feature" means: something that prevents you from doing things you need to do.

    There is nothing I can do about this. Try using a browser that is not complete Nazi garbage.
