I saved the link, went to run the puzzle and the Malbarware blocked it. Now I must find a way to get around that. I need to see what the message was. It was so quick, I missed the message, just saw it was blocked and deleted from the file. Sad

AHA! Some antivirus programs automatically block .exe files. I had to get rid of AVAST and replace it with AVG to get past that annoying problem. I could create puzzles and play them but when I loaded them through the internet they kept blocking them and would not allow me to override it even though I knew they were clean and safe. Once I switched to AVG the problem went away.

I went into Malware and it said it was a Trojan SFX (I think) anyhow, I thought I would then do a scan. I did the scan and Trojan came up on that file also. It gave me an option to keep it or get rid of it. So, I deleted it for now. Tell me more about the AVG program. McAfee never said a word but Malware blocked it. So stupid. I am now more determined than ever to run it but I have to get it past Malware first. My computer technician put it on my computer and now I am stuck with it. He is such a fanatic. AVG I heard of that but can not remember what it is. Will wait to hear from you.

It is a free (or pay to upgrade) antivirus program.

If you decide to use it you will need to stop your MacAfee program. Also watch out as you go through the installation and uncheck or decline all of the extras. Otherwise it will add and change your tool bars and home page.

Oh, I forgot to ask, are you on a PC or a MAC ? If you have a MAC/Apple computer, these puzzles will not work which is a real bummer.

JB, that used to happen to me if I chose Run. But when I choose Save, it doesn't. So now I always save the puzzles into a folder in My Pictures, and when I click on one to play it, I sometimes get a warning. I just tell my computer to run it anyway, and everything is fine. It opens, I play, nothing crashes.

And as a helpful hint, I've started doing something else lately. Before I select the puzzle I want, I "copy" the title of it. Then when I save the puzzle, I choose "Save As", and then paste the puzzle's name in the folder with the puzzle. Smiling

Nancy I tried that and it took the puzzle right out of the file when I went to open it. Makes me so angry, I am afraid I am not going to be able to do away with McAfee. My technician will have a rip fit if I do that. He has the backup on there also. Oh well. I tried. Sorry.

Nancy, I have not used McAfee in over a decade so I do not know what settings it has. It may have an option to allow the files to be opened if you mark this as a trusted site.

Actually I'm a Norton user. Norton doesn't want me to trust it, but I've trusted the Jigsaw Puzzle site for all these years. My Norton must shake its head and roll its eyes everytime I tell it to ....

"OPEN MY PUZZLE!!!" Angry

It is aggravating that the programs find it easier to block all .exe files rather than actually scan them for viruses. Instead, they lump them together and call them trojans even when they are 100 % clean. Grumbling

No one has ever been infected with anything from these files other than an addiction to working them. And that is a good thing Big Grin

I agree

I remember being concerned about it at first. But the site is 100% safe.

McAfee gave me a notice yesterday that your link is clean. But the stupid firewall still blocks it. When i have a second today I am going to turn off the firewall and download and open the puzzle. So we will see if that works.
