Virus detection in chrome
So this is a bit confusing but I’ll try my hardest to explain it. So i uploaded a file to google drive (it was a shortcut file to chrome) Anyway i uploaded it and got the file download link then clicked download. Which is my file through google Drives. When i downloaded it chrome said,”this file may be harmful to your device.” But i said to my self,”Eh it’s my file that i uploaded and i know it’s clean so I’ll just download it.” Then after i downloaded it i tried opening it. Windows security came up and said this file may harm your device. But the pop up was like the old windows 7 pop up. I clicked what’s the risk and it opened the old enternet explorer which seemed sketch and had some security check box thing. I just immediately closed out of it. After that i deleted it and did a Norton quick scan. It was clean. I’m now doing a quick scan and will update this comment when it’s finished. Just to clarify the file did not have any harmful software in the first place. Thank you!
