Attention! Whenever you see a big and alluring "Download" button followed by an insignificant "Create download link" or "Direct download link", always go for the insignificant and ignore the bright and shiny "Download" buttons.

Don't forget to install an ad blocker like uBlock Origin or AdBlock Plus or AdGuard Plus! (for Firefox)
uBlock Origin for Chrome
uBlock Origin for Safari
AdGuard Plus for Chrome


Image Warning! Even with ad blockers installed, you may still need to click on the correct buttons 2 or 3 times and close the pop-ups and redirects before the download begins, most filehosts have found ways to bypass Ad Blockers completely.



Note: you are currently reading the information thread, if you'd like to follow or join the discussions on this issue please visit the Social Club's topic: .exe or Virus warning after downloading an app, ebook etc. We will try to keep images updated with the new methods used by filehosts as soon as changes happen.

Yeah, this modification is very annoying. We got a lot of PMs from people telling us the uploaders uploaded malware/trojans instead of (in our case) ebooks.

Good news that somebody on these here interwebz has eyes. I almost smashed my laptop with a hammer when I got that malware warning.

(In my defence it was late and I felt it was the best course of action. And yes, later I did think of simply unplugging the LAN cable.)

Please PM me for any re-uploads of my releases. Thanks.

Malware usually is not dangerous, but it is annoying. This special malware will change your browser settings and display several popups. If you already got infected use an anti malware program like http://www.malwarebytes.org/products/malwarebytes_free/

Thanks :) Malwarebytes found that bad file & removed it. I'm embarrassed to admit I never looked as far as the bottom of the page...What I did was install Better Pop Up Blocker & it stopped those annoying pop ups. Do I still need to de-select their downloader or am I safe?

Continue to make sure the box isn't checked is always the best practice and also run Anti-Malware and Anti-Virus software on a weekly basis regardless of this being an issue or not.

Check ALL links before PMing me.
Tusfiles: click "Direct Download Link" AFTER unchecking the download manager

Does this change seem to affect premium users? I find that it now takes longer for the download to start and download speed is alot slower.

Premium users of the Mobilism Downloader? The speed issue might be a side effect of it trying to install somewhere it can't, yes.

Side note: If you download from rapidgator using a mobile device (iPad, iPhone, Android), you won't have this issue regarding their downloader trying to download first.
