Requiring "Continue" to download PE executables?

How have people done this in practise?


We would like to prompt people so they have to choose "continue" to download PE executable files.


I know this only applies to "web-browsing" but when I test this, a Google Chrome update shows as "web-browsing" and isn't interactive so the user doesn't get the prompt to continue, nor does the update download.


Seems a very nice feature in practise but curious how people have tuned it not to cause problems.

google Chrome updates should be classified as "google-update" if I remember correctly.

Yes, but weird but in the logs there are several data filtering entries for the .exe that show "web-browsing" as the application, then it shows "google-update" and has downloaded.


All are on port 80 which is still a little unusual.
