Tweaking SmartScreen Settings In Windows 8

Starting with Internet Exploer 8 Microsoft started to employ the SmartScreen Filter to protect the user from Malware, Viruses, Worms, etc... in downloaded files. Windows 8 now uses Internet Explorer's SmartScreen system-wide, checking downloaded files to ensure they're safe. In general this is a good thing, but if you have any problems then it can be tweaked.

Launch Control Panel,
open the Action Centre applet, and click Change Windows SmartScreen Settings in the left-hand pane.
Here you can keep the warning, but avoid the requirement for administrator approval, or turn SmartScreen off altogether.
Make your choice and click OK to finish.
