Windows Smartscreen prevented a game from running.

It says Windows Smartscreen prevented the program (WofQuest) from running. Could the game be dangerous? If not, how can I make it run.

I have Smartscreen filter turned on and can get to the site WolfQuest

You might be smart to download the game and save it .... don't run. Right click on the setup file and scan it with your Anti-virus to make sure it's okay before trying to execute the file to run.

I did save it and then tried to run from there. But can't run it because of the Smartscreen filter.

See this article and make sure the game is safe .. If it came from a torrent or 'crack' it's NOT safe!
