I just fired up my Windows 10 Alienware laptop to download CWPI with Chrome.  Using default settings in Chrome and Windows 10 firewall / Windows defender.

 

I am getting a warning saying CWPI cannot be safely downloaded -- site might not be secure OR has been known to host malware in the past, etc.

 

Should I just ignore this and download?

These messages often appear when the user base is so small that it triggers an alert. CPWI is OK.

Chrome occasionally does this.  I've been using Microsoft Edge for about 6 months now with good results.  It's based on the same open source platform, sort of like Chrome without the Google.
