Windows 10 won't let me upgrade calibre

I know this isn't a calibre problem, but I can't get any help from the Windows 10 forum. Can anyone help here?

I'm almost certain that there was a Windows 10 upgrade recently, but I don't know enough about Windows to be sure, or even to be able to use the Windows 10 forum.

I downloaded the latest calibre upgrade a couple of days ago - I've been using calibre for years without problem. When I tried to run it a big blue screen appears on the Windows screen saying
'Windows Defender Smartscreen prevented an unrecognized app from starting. Running this app might put your PC at risk.'

It doesn't give me any option to run the upgrade. If I had to choose I'd rather have calibre than Windows Defender. Can anyone tell me how to turn Windows Defender off? Or how to use the Windows 10 forum to try to get some sense from them?

Hmmm....

There should be possible to click "More Information" or something similar in the Popup, then you can click "Start Anyway" (or something similar) and it will launch...

Thanks. I'd got myself into a panic and didn't see that.
