    Simplex November 2023 Update fails to download from many sites?


    I have tried to download Simplex Update 2023/11 from many sites.
    All have failed after appearing to complete the download THEN asking if I trust the download "as it is not frequently" downloaded.
    I'm a klutz however I do trust Simplex's Updates but there is no option to indicate I do trust it.
    Any help would be appreciated.

    Are you talking about this download? UpdatePack7R2-23.11.15.exe 823 MB (863,970,248 bytes)

    It downloads from Major Geeks OK. Simplix UpdatePack 7 23.11.15

    The MyDigitalLife forums is where I prefer to obtain the new updated version every month.
    The MajorGeeks site is my preferred second option.

    How do I indicate I TRUST the Download?


    Went there and registered.
    That is a lot of stuff.
    I searched on Simplex.
    Could you PLEASE help me by telling me what you enter as your Search Argument?

    Why not just use the official home page?
    Набор обновлений UpdatePack7R2 для Windows 7 SP1 и Server 2008 R2 SP1 — simplix.info

    It's always better to use the original rather than some random site to download software.

    Alejandro85,

    I agree with you.
    I tried it and received the same results.
    I'm confounded.
    It should be straight forward it's not, it's a dilemma.
    I get the Message about Continuing or Closing.
    no matter how long I wait, 15 or 30 minutes, it's always Downloading.

    Have you tried the Major Geeks link I gave in Post #2? Major Geeks has been around since 2001 and has always been a reliable source for downloads.

    Given that you are having problems from multiple download locations, it seems that the problem comes from your browser or something else in your computer that's blocking it. A "security" plugin in the browser could cause problems, and if your system is infected with an antivirus it could also block downloads it doesn't likes.
    My next suggestion would be that you try with a different, clean browser and uninstall any antivirus you may have.

    I came across this.
    Can anyone advise me how to "turn it off"?

    Perhaps MS is doing this to defeat Simplex providing this Service?
