SmartScreen on Windows 10

Q

Why am I getting the "SmartScreen can't be reached" error on Windows 10?

A

By default, Windows 10 contacts Windows Defender SmartScreen server to perform security check when you start a new application.

If there is an issue to connect to the Windows Defender SmartScreen server running by Microsoft, you will get the following error message:

SmartScreen can't be reached right now

Check your Internet connection. Windows Defender SmartScreen is
unreachable and can't help you decide if this app is ok to run.

Publisher: ABC Company
App: setup.exe

On this error message screen, you have two options:

1. Click "Run" button to run the application, if you can trust this application.

2. Click "Don't Run" button to quit. Run it later when Windows Defender SmartScreen server is available.
