I have recently tried to download a couple of schematics from the Radio Museum site. https://www.radiomuseum.org
When I click on the"download" button, My Malwarebytes program alerts me to that it is a malicious website and does not allow me to continue.
Is anybody familiar with this site?
It seems like a strange type of website to distribute malware.

It's not RM that's distributing malware. You must have clicked on a pop-up ad. Ads like that are often found on websites where content can be downloaded. The idea is to trick the user into downloading malware from the ad instead of from the website itself.

If you are running an ad or script blocker... disable it.
or specifically... allow gstatic.com to see the I'm not a robot box from recaptha.

Once you complete the I'm not a robot task, click the now activated Request for a document radio button.

Stay away from the START DOWNLOAD buttons. Third party ads.
The two little grey boxes in the upper right-hand corner should always alert you to the fact that these are advertisements.


Click a schematic page from the right-hand scrolling window, then again in the main center window.
Each page will be emailed to you immediately.
You can only download three pages a day + up to a maximum of ten every 30 days.
pdf attachments are not visible in junk email folders.

I have never had a problem downloading schematics from Radio Museum until 2 days ago. Followed the proper procedure and had confirmation that schematics emailed however never received them. Tried to download them again and received notification that I was at my limit for the day so I know they were sent, Checked my junk mail as well not there. Anybody have any ideas I have a hotmail account if that makes a difference.

Thanks
Bob
