Help! Scrivener is gone!


This morning when I tried to open Scrivener, I got a message saying:

“Warning! This program may contain elements that can hurt your computer.”

  • And right after that, the Scrivener icon disappeared from the dock and the program was gone!

I then searched everywhere on my Mac, but Scrivener was just not there anymore. Finally, I went to Literature&Latte’s homepage to download it again, but as soon as I tried to open the new program I got a message saying almost the same: “Are you sure you want to open this program? It might contain elements that can hurt your computer.”

Please help me. I am having a deadline hanging over my head and am completely lost if I don’t recover the files + I have been a very happy Scrivener user since 2015.

Thank you in advance,

PS. I am using OS X El Capitan 10.11.4
