google chrome identify virus

Are you aware of the problem, Google Chrome identifies the codec pack like a virus and does not download it.
This information is present on the Kaspersky forums

The pack is clean. You can verify if you have a genuine file by comparing the SHA256 or MD5 hash of the file with the values published on the website.

Downloading works fine here in Chrome with latest version of the pack. There was a false positive detection for an older version. Which site/link did you try to download it from?

Just downloaded 1-3 min from posting time.
google chrome on latest ver at current time detects as a virus.
This is for all links that contain the .exe ver

Press Ctrl+J to open the download list. There you can recover the file. You can check that the file is clean with http://www.virustotal.com

It sometimes shows the warning here. It is a false positive. It also doesn't actually say that it is a virus. It says it may harm the browsing experience, which is totally different. That is because it contains an optional toolbar, which can be disabled with a single mouse-click.

Download from MajorGeeks doesn't show the warning here, even though it contains the exact same files. Google Chrome just sucks.
