    b. Click "More Actions" button on the top right corner and then click
    settings.

    c. Drag the mouse cursor to turn off "Help protect my PC from Malicious sites and downloads with SmartScreen Filter".

    How to ensure key applications will still run after Win10 upgrade

    I am glad you experienced no problems, I suspect that your backups (like mine) will be collecting dust for some time.

    I am really not a fan of Norton, has so often been outperformed by free antivirus software, its a resource hog, tries to take too much control of the pc, causes as many issues as a virus and has a history of being very slow to deal with new threats.

    A new thread may be a good idea, to get a range of views so that you can make an informed decision, my view is biased against Norton.

    If SmartScreen determines that a website is potentially malicious, you’ll see a red warning and the content won’t render in either Microsoft Edge or Internet Explorer 11 on Windows 10.

    Microsoft SmartScreen warning

    defender has been improved with windows 10, but the following (refers to windows 8) may give some insight as well.

    SmartScreen Filter in Internet Explorer helps protect users from phishing and malware attacks by warning you if a website or download location has been reported as unsafe.

    You'll see a warning like this if you browse to an unsafe website
