Hi Frustrated,

Now I'm frustrated!  I have a problem with the instruction in the link regarding

Microsoft Edge. I don't have "View Advanced Settings" in my Edge.

Maybe, at today's version it is no longer present.

In any case, the SmartScreen controls are located on the "App & Browser

Control screen, in Windows Defender.

Settings > Update & Security > Windows Security > App & Browser Control.

If your problem was demonstrated in Edge, maybe it goes away with only

changing the settings in Browser Control, now.

Regards,  Glen
