I read over the "Is there a command line Bitcoin CPU miner for Windows?" post and GCMiner looked promising for a Windows command line scriptable solution that allows pool mining.
I tried downloading the GCMiner client right from GitHub links from Windows via the Chrome, Firefox, and Internet Explorer web browsers and all of them say something is unsafe and prevents me from downloading the CLI tool. I tried to download from Linux Mint via the Firefox web browser from the GitHub links and got the same unsuccessful result.
Is there a safe Windows client that is command line that I can use to mine in a pool such as SlushPool for CPU mining I suppose?
I'm setting this up to play with and become familiar with the pool management side more than the configuration so I'm not worried about CPU being ineffienct over GPU.
If I can safely download CGMiner to start playing with it on Windows that'd even work.
Note: I'd prefer to use a pool like SlushPool where I can put in my unique username and whatever miner names I define only. I don't want a client that requires an email address in the logic to mine.
