Google Chrome - "Download is in progress..." when nothing is downloading


Every time user tries to close Google Chrome, "Download is in progress" warning message appears, despite that there is nothing being downloaded.

Download is in progress

Download is in progress
Exit Chrome anyway?


The issue was resolved by clearing the Google Chrome cache: Options > More Tools > Clear Browsing Data
