Hi,

Try disabling your antivirus then try downloading it then after installing
reenabling it.

Still no luck I'm afraid, even with the direct download link. Could it be
my antivirus program sees the installer as a virus?

I just changed the link you are using to use https; forgot it was an
absolute link. Let me know if that helped. If you are concerned that your
local web cache may interfere with getting the updated page, use te direct
link for the file (which, incidentally, I recommend against doing in general
in case it changes):
https://www.dlee.org/skype/electron/jfw_skypeelectron.exe

Hi Doug. Thanks for your reply, but still no luck. Perhaps I should
explain the way I get to the download link:

I open the page in the usual way, click the link for the latest JAWS script
user's guide, then the link that says "Download and run, or run directly,
the installer for these scripts." As soon as I click that link, my
antivirus gives me the message I stated in my first post.

Not sure why you'd get that message, but try https instead of http. I set up
https specifically because a few people were having download problems a few
months ago, though not any that sound identical to yours.

Hi all. This is probably not Skype related, and thus I apologize for
the off-topic message, but it has to do with trying to tdownload the
latest JAWS scripts for Skype.


I'm running Skype Electron, and every time I try to download the
scripts, my AVG Antivirus aborts the connection and displays the
following message:


"Threat secured. We've safely aborted connection on [1]www.dlee.org
because it was affected with [2]URL:blacklist."


Does anybody know what that means and how I can get past it? If I need
to change something in my antivirus, please write me off-list so as not
to clutter the list with non-Skype-related messages.


Thanks in advance.

Marius
