    Default Problems downloading anything including Windows Updates? Disable SmartScreen and try

    For two whole days i had nothing but trouble trying to download anything or do Windows Updates.

    I use Windows 8.1 after reverting back from windows 10 which i hated.

    I searched the internet for a solution, seen many,attempted many,but nothing would work.

    After hrs and hrs of trying to figure out what the problem was, i tried one thing that might have been the solution.

    If you have problems downloading anything including Windows Updates, disable Windows SmartScreen. It helped me.

    I can now download,and all my updates are downloading and properly being configured.

    Just thought i would post this incase it might just help somebody who is having the difficulties that i had.
