Do all those (malware) files have "Unblock" unchecked (picture)?

You can test any EXE file after ticking "Unblock". If you run it normally, then SmartScreen will not be triggered. If you use "Run As SmartScreen or "Run By SmartScreen" the SmartScreen will be triggered, anyway. That is why I call this "Forced SmartScreen".(y)

Using Unblock bypasses SmartScreen but not SRP. The "Run As SmartScreen" feature bypasses SRP, but obligatory forces SmartScreen.:giggle:

Even if the question has already been answered: I recorded a short video where I show uncut downloading samples and their properties (a few things I had to censor).



tl;dr:
the samples don't have a mark of the web because I use 7-zip
