NPE 6.0 Windows Defender Smart Screen nabs NPE.exe

Running the NPE 6.0 executable for the 1st run, WD Smart Screen nabbed the file. I'm reporting this NOT as a bug but rather that in some cases users may see this same instance on their machines as well. 


Dell 15-5555 laptop / Microsoft Surface Pro 3 *Both devices have settings sync'd and exhibited the same behavior

Windows 10 Professional x64 version 20H2, 19042.804 - Windows Feature Experience Pack 120.2212.551.0 * BOTH devices tested

Initial program run - No error or bug, informational ONLY


MS Certified Professional / Windows Server 2016 Essentials - Windows 10 Professional x 64 version 21H1 / build 19044.1387 / Linux Mint Tina 19.3 LTS / Norton Security Ultra ver. / Opera GX LVL3 (core: 81.0.4196.61) 64 bit-Early Access w/Norton Chrome Extensions
