Hi, I wasn't sure how to communicate this directly to technical support, but the Micro Center owned Powerspec (pc manufacturer) made an elementary mistake on their website
that caused them to be blocked by my reputable browser guard, Malwarebytes. I wanted to download drivers specifically for my Powerspec PC, and Micro Center told me to go there, so I knew
it was trustworthy and not malware. But then when I tried to download my drivers from Powerspec.com, the browser guard (on Chrome) blocked me, saying it was suspicious.
Well apparently there's a simple reason for this. Powerspec.com is written without the "S" in HTTPS. The S is short for Secure, making this a big mistake to leave out.
If I hadn't known better, that may have been enough to dissuade me from updating my drivers that way.
Greetings! Thank you for posting this here to bring it to our attention. I will get this over to the proper teams so they can investigate it. Were you able to get the drivers?
Thanks for the update @speccs52
I've shared this info with those responsible in our corporate office. Glad to hear that they were able to whitelist the site for the time being.
Thank you for the information. Please let us know if you have any other questions!
Ok, am I supposed to mark this as answered? Not sure how, I'm new here.
No worries! Glad to have a new face around here.

Wait, I see now that I marked this thread as a discussion and not a question. So that's why I can't select an answer and leave this thread marked "answered".
I also found out I can change the type of thread this is, but not from this page. Rather, it seems like I have to do it from the "my discussions" page, where I see the thread(s) I created.
Pretty confusing, since I had to figure it out by myself. Is there a FAQ on forum rules/actions somewhere on this site? If so I haven't found it yet.
We don't have anything quite so specific or detailed as the things that you've mentioned.
