I assume, after the download and after you'd re-enabled your anti-virus package, you virus-checked that download.

There's nothing to virus check. The program does all this downloading and updating behind the scenes and I suspect deletes any temporary files when finished. If my AV program saw something it didn't like when I had it enabled and tried to do this update, it would have alerted me, which it didn't.

Makes me wonder what California is trying to track through their forms downloads (or what the purveyor of the forms is trying to track).

It is suspicious. I should be able to do this update without disabling the AV, just as I can with so many other programs. It's not the state of California, BTW, it's H&R Block.
