Since 'Upgrading' :-

In page:

Click on file: 'Collection2.mdb' or any other (*.zip, *.TCLib, *.rar) to download.

Get message:
'Danger: the AVG Security toolbar has detected active threats on this page and has blocked access for your protection.
Return to the previous page and choose another link (recommended).'

No clue as to what danger is or which entry is causing problem.
Also no way to override the block.
Most of the entries on the page have been previously used/uploaded by me without issue.
Also the site is pretty reputable and these pages need a user/password to access.

How do I regain access without disabling AVG?

Hello AveragePhil,

This issue is most probably caused by a false positive detection. Please contact our virus specialists directly as described here.

Thank you.
