Every download ends with "XYZ program contained a virus and was deleted"


  • This happens on anything I try to download.  I have closed my AVG, Zone Alarm, Spybot Search & Destroy & Ad-Aware, checked add-ons, etc.  I have searched forums for many hours without a solution.  I am using IE9 with Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit SP-1.  I don't have the save ecrypted files checked and have made sure Shockwave is enabled.  I have tried every option on every forum I can find & I still have this problem.  Please help.

  • Hi,


    This kind of issue is mostly related to anti-virus software. Generally, when you open a file that you save from the Internet, Windows would tell the registered antivirus program to scan the file.


    Please navigate to the following registry path:

    Please backup your registry first.




    Set the value of registry entry ScanWithAntiVirus as 1.


    What is the result?


    Meanwhile, generally, it is recommended to install only one anti-virus software in Windows 7.
