Tired of Windows 8 telling you that the software you download is safe or not safe. All you have to do is disable Smart Screen and take control and Windows the way it use to be in the old days.
Software is meant to be free and when you want to install third party software, it should be your choice on what you want to install without the help of Windows.
Microsoft tries to control everything about users and here's another one of those features they are trying to incorporate into their software to control what you install in their operating system.
Here's how to remove it::
Internet Explorer has long had a feature called SmartScreen, which was first implemented in Internet Explorer 8, and has since been a part of IE9, IE10, Hotmail, and now Windows 8. When you visit a website, or open a file, SmartScreen communicates with Microsoft and checks if that website/file are whitelisted or not.
In both cases, SmartScreen pops up a warning if you try to visit a site or open a file that isn’t confirmed to be safe. As a defense against malware, SmartScreen is actually rather effective — and, really, no other browser or OS offers the same kind of protection. SmartScreen can be a little irritating, though, especially if you regularly download third-party EXEs from the internet.
For a start, when you see your first SmartScreen warning (pictured above), don’t be alarmed. It may look like Windows is completely blocking you from running an app, but in actuality you just have to click “More info” to reveal the “Run anyway” button.
To disable SmartScreen entirely, though, hit the Windows key, type SmartScreen, change to the Settings tab, and then click “Change SmartScreen settings.” From there, click “Change Windows SmartScreen settings” from the left-hand menu, then select the “Don’t do anything” radio button.
