  14. SmartScreen Filter helps to protect you in three ways: As you browse the web, it analyzes webpages and determines if they have any characteristics that might be suspicious. If it finds suspicious webpages, a message will display giving you an opportunity to provide feedback and advising you to proceed with caution. It checks sites you visit against a dynamic list of reported phishing sites and malicious software sites. If it finds a match, it shows you a warning notifying you that the site has been blocked for your safety. It checks files that you download from the web against a list of reported malicious software sites and programs known to be unsafe. If it finds a match, it will warn you that the download has been blocked for your safety. It also checks the files you download against a list of files that are well known and downloaded by many Internet Explorer users. If the file you're downloading isn't on that list, it will warn you.
