    Hello "drugo",

    It would be greatly appreciated if you supplied us with a screenshot of your issue.
    This is help diagnosing your computer.

    The only advice I can currently give you is to:
    1. Create a new user account with administrator privileges.
    2. Download FileZilla (FTP client).
    Check if this alerts SmartScreen and if you are allowed to click "run anyway".

    Thank you,
    Mosaic Mars.

    Hello Drugo,

    Windows SmartScreen requires a password of an administrator to allow.

    You'll need to add a password for your account to be able provide it's administrator password in Windows SmartScreen.
