Dualminer Help


#1

When I try to download the software from the Dualminer website my computer keeps blocking it as potential virus or spyware. I think it is Malware Bytes blocking it but not a 100% sure. I tried setting up a web exclusion on Malware Bytes for Dualminer but it didn’t work. I am using windows 8.1

Downloaded fine for me …


#3

I don’t know why it keeps getting blocked on mine.


#4

What browser?


#5

Firefox

Try Chrome. Usually Malware Bytes tells you what it is blocking and where. It might be your browser not notifying you. A lot of the miner programs are flagged as malware and some of them have it in them.

I just tried downloading from a separate repository (http://mhzserver.ca/download/Crypto/) for it because the Dualminer site is blocked at my work.

Chrome blocked it. Well that’s okay. There is a trick around Chrome blocked files.
From your downloads section or wherever the file is. It should be named something "Unconfirmed 716960.crdownload"
Replace the “crdownload” with .zip . It will warn you about changing it, accept it.
Then you should have a usable zip file to uncompressed the installer.

Regardless of where you get the miner program. Scan the zip/folder installation with Malware Bytes or another anti-virus to protect yourself.

Let us know what happens.

Thanks for the suggestion it was Firefox that was blocking it I switched to IE and it downloaded no problem.

I have mixed feelings about upvoting something that was solved by IE :wink:
Glad you found a work around regardless. I still suggest Chrome to you over IE :smile:

I’ve never actually tried Chrome. I rarely ever use IE it just came with the laptop (as it does all window machines).
