Problem to install image magick in Windows 10: Windows protected your computer

Post by devnoob »

I'm trying to install ImageMagick-7.0.9-12-Q16-x64-dll on Windows 10, but when i execute the installer i get the following message:

Windows protected your computer

Windows Defender SmartScreen prevented an unrecognized application from launching. If you run this application, your computer could be vulnerable.

Why does that happen?

Should i ignore that message and install it anyway?
