Assuming that you are in fact trying to download the base installation file v2.2(64b) and not the newest upgrade (v2.4.198 released today), then Malwarebytes Browser Guard responds the same way as Norton Security. Here's the actual text from the error message I received:

Malwarebytes Browser Guard blocks downloads that either come from websites that see relatively light traffic or may contain potentially malicious content. This is intended to protect you from new scams. However, if you trust content from this site and would like to proceed, click "Continue."

I receive a similar warning from Internet Explorer (!!! - don't worry, my default browser is Google Chrome, completely updated) when I download a certain other file that others rarely access. So, I'm not that concerned about it.

Nonetheless, if you don't want to "Continue" and take the risk, and if Kim doesn't send it to you privately, let us know and I'll put ztw22x64.exe on my OneDrive and share a link to it with you all.
