Avast blocking this site download?
« on: October 28, 2011, 04:15:17 PM »
This is the site

hxxx://sf.dfigames.com/download/default.aspx

The size of the file is 643mb i already try more than 10 times with different browser all result fail.

I already try 3 of my computers when it reach to 19.6mb download file Avast Ball will spin then the download will stop.

To make it clear.

Mozilla, IE7, Google chrome all stop at 19.6mb when avast ball spin.


No warning pop up.

On curiosity i disable Avast then it continues using chrome, mozilla and IE7.

Is the site safe?

Or Avast having bug?

I recommend using a download manager such as free download manager.

It might be a glitch in avast. Do you have other security applications installed?

I dont use free download manager.

All my computer use only 1 AV. Never use any.

Im pretty sure its a bug because every time Avast spins... the download stop @ 19.6mb without any warning.

Since were same country kindly try my link.

Its a Special Force Online try downloading it if you can reach 20-30mb more.

So we can verify if its really Avast have cause the problem.

Did you use a browser to download?

YOur Laptop is windows 7 64 bit.

Try using your desktop which is more likely same as mine.

The IM is an internal avast forum function, which is restricted to avast users that have at least 20 posts. So there is a very limited chance that a spammer will get to 20 posts to be able to use it internally.

Can you download other games from the website?

If you can it could be a corrupted file or infected file that you are unable to download.

That website is the creator of Special Force online.

I already complete the download with Avast Disabled using FF.

The Game is running fine now.


The only thing that bugs my mind is that when Avast system tray ball spins @ 19.6mb/643mb the download will automatically finish but its incomplete.

I hope someone could replicate my issues because not only 1 computer with same effect.

I suggest scanning the downloaded file if you haven't already. Just to be on the safe side.  Scan it with avast! and Malwarebytes and/or SAS.

1) Never disable any anti-virus. As you will leave yourself vulnerable to all kinds of nasties.
2) I would not suggest disabling a firewall either. Doing so opens yourself wide open to lots problems with the software on your computer.  :)
