    Windows Smartscreen down?


    I'm getting the Windows Smartscreen can't be reached right now where as I have a normal internet connection. Could MS servers be down? Can anyone check on their end? Thanks. :)

    Haha! I was about to post a thread. I've had the same problem. Keeps saying it can't be reached. I thought it might of been to do with having Malwarebytes and AVG both installed and somehow affecting it or disabling it? I can't seem to see it running in background via the taskbar, neither.

    Me, too. Even tried on another computer and said same thing. So must be a problem in general.

    I get it too, I suspect everyone does. Must be a problem at the server.
    I just use Defender, so it's not anything to do with having 3rd-party AVs installed.

    Check firewall rules for Smartsceen? Must be green. Plus, Edge and Security center have their own Smartscreen parameter.
