Since my last couple of Chrome updates, every time I download a file, it comes up with something like "This file can harm your computer" with "Keep" and "Discard" buttons. I have looked thru all the Chrome settings and can find no option that allows or disables this message. Chrome does NOT do this on my laptop. Is there a setting that will disable this and if so, where?
