Hi. My name is***** you for your question and the opportunity to assist.
Click the start menu button and scroll through the apps to the W section.
Expand Windows System and open Control Panel.
Open Security and Maintenance
In the Security section, expand it if it isn't already, under Windows SmartScreen click Change Settings
To turn SmartScreen off select Don't do anything(turn off Windows SmartScreen) and click OK.
Not all people will run into this issue but that is how to turn off SmartScreen.
People using an anti-virus program other than Windows Defender may get some type of warning from
their anti-virus program but anti-virus makers take security very seriously today.
Hi. A Hebrew version of Windows will be a barrier for me. Attached is a screenshot of the
Security and Maintenance page with another location where Smart Screen can be turned off.
The smart screen option should be there. Can you check this:
click the start menu button and open Settings (the gear icon)
Click System and then from the menu on the left click About at the bottom
and tell me the numbers for OS Build and Version.
Hi. I'm not sure what's going on with that.
Go here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10
On that page, if it offers the "Update Now" option, go ahead and update
I believe that's it. The latest version of Windows 10 changed the screens I sent earlier.
But here's what to do now:
Click the start menu button and open settings (the gear icon)
In the Find a Setting box type: app & browser control (exactly like it is in bold)
and open it.
Set all 3 items to OFF
I'm sorry I don't have a Hebrew screenshot to send but here's the English version.
Hi. I'm glad to hear it worked. Windows 10 took away the user's ability to control updates
as in previous versions of Windows. It's Bill Gates' way of protecting us from ourselves.
