Angry Virus/Matware from your 3rd Party download site...

Hello. In trying to download the XK8 workshop manual I fell headlong in to a serious infection on virus and malware issues brought about by an apparent hijacking of your chosen download site. 2 hours to clean my PC.

Can I suggest that you review the site and see if the issue can be resolved.

Sorry to bring bad news, but if it stops anyone else having the same issue.
