Chrome just recently updated (Version 24.0.1312.57) and I can't download files no more. I think the latter is the result of the former.
Internet Explorer (8) has no problems.
OS: Windows XP SP 3.
Every time I try I get 'Virus Scan Failed' next to the file name in the Download box at the bottom of the screen.
When I look at my Downloads (chrome://downloads/) it says 'Download Failed' but if I try and do a new download it says 'Anti-virus software failed unexpectedly while scanning this file.'
I've looked the 'Common Download Errors' page, especially the advice concerning 'Possible causes of error message: Virus Scan Failed'. Not much help here. I have Symantec Endpoint antivirus installed, its a corporate install and I can't change any of the settings so I can't attack it from that angle.
I can't find anything related to the Microsoft Attachment Manager in my registry either.
I found one thread recommending running Microsoft Fix It to reset Internet Explorer settings, as this would fix this problem in Chrome. It didn't
So, any advice?
