I setup my Windows 10 Build 1803 last night, and I keep getting this Smartscreen pop up every time I tried to run my software. I can check and install updates through Windows Update fine.
Smartscreen can't be reached right now. Check your internet connection. Windows Defender Smartscreen is unreachable and can't help you decide if this app is ok to run.

Do any of you guys have this smartscreen can't be reached when you download a new app and run it? I tested on my laptop, and I am getting the same result as a new clean installation on my desktop.

Yes, exactly. I had cleaned up some files on my laptop and thought I might have caused it. Now I'm not so sure. I PM'd @Andy Ful earlier and currently waiting to continue conversation.

I just wanted to test samples two hours ago, but I can't. SmartScreen is really down(?)
I think so. My laptop and my desktop showed the same result.

I thought I bomb my clean installation as well because I asked myself last night. What the hell did I do? All I did is installed Windows Updates, my motherboard and GPU drivers, and my apps.

Do you all use @Andy Ful's RunBySmartscreen on your system, because my feeling is that this is the issue for me. I don't believe it happened right after the update... it appears it was a couple of days or so... but what do I know?
What is RunBySmartscreen? I have never heard that ever. I just found out yesterday when I finished setup a clean installation for my desktop.
