Website Technical Response
Did you receive a message from your anti-virus software on your computer (or from your internet browser) when you attempted to download a file from the Alive Publications website? Usually, when this alert is received it is an indication that the user is running an older version of the Windows Operating System or an outdated, unsupported anti-virus software.
Please be aware that Microsoft’s Internet Explorer web browsing software is no longer supported by Microsoft. It is recommended that you use an updated web browser like Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, or Apple Safari.
Also, if you are using an outdated version of Microsoft’s Windows operating systems, you may receive warnings incorrectly from your anti-virus. Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7 are all not currently supported and will not be supported in the near future. Because they aren’t supported, your anti-virus may give you false warnings of issues with your computer and websites. (http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/lifecycle)
Additionally, it is recommended that you use an up-to-date, supported anti-virus program from companies like Norton & McAfee. Please note that programs like Microsoft Essentials hasn’t been supported by Microsoft since Windows 7.
