“Windows has protected your PC” – Windows has done nothing of the sort!
Due to the “Nannying” nature and the need to monetize everything which is pervading the internet and the Windows software, you may receive messages which could stop you from downloading Visual Accounts or the miscellaneous files from the Visual Accounts website.
If you are on a site which doesn’t have security (the little padlock and/or “https:” in the address bar), then this might be a valid warning but Visual Accounts is a secure website.
You can verify this by checking for the Padlock and/or the “https://“ in the address bar. Go on, check and you’ll see the Padlock is there.
Also, we regularly check all the downloadable files against over 60 different antivirus programs to make sure they haven’t been tampered with.
So for Visual Accounts, you can safely ignore these warnings.
What the warnings may look like or say:
When downloading files from Visual Accounts you may receive a warning like this:
These files aren’t dangerous! They have been checked by VirusTotal.
