Here is how to fix GMail's false positive error. When you see this:
Virus warning - 1 attachment contains a virus. Downloading this attachment is disabled. Learn more

And the download button is disabled:

Simply right click → Inspect element → scroll up a few lines and find the link to docs.google.com. It looks like this:

Go there and now you can download:

p.s.: Yes, it was a false positive:

GMail; protecting us so hard it suffocates us.
