Puttygen free download for windows 8

windows protected your pcMicrosoft's newest operating system Windows 8 ships with the Windows SmartScreen feature enabled by default. SmartScreen is a background tool that monitors the execution of applications on the system to block the execution of the application until it has been rated by Microsoft. SmartScreen collects information about the program, including the program's file name, hash code and digital signature if available, and submits the information to a Microsoft server on the Internet (https://apprep.smartscreen.microsoft.com).

The server responds with a rating for the application that either triggers Windows SmartScreen if it is not known, or lets you continue with the program installation if the application is considered safe.

The SmartScreen message that appears, Windows protected your PC, makes it rather difficult for users to understand how they can proceed with the execution of the program. The OK button is highlighted here, but ok simply stops the execution of the program. It is necessary to click on the more info link underneath the description to bypass the SmartScreen Windows protected your PC message.

If you are an experienced user, you may not like the SmartScreen protection at all as it slows you down and may not provide additional security at all, especially if you are running up to date antivirus software on your system.
