    Well first one it works in background. Its scan each file. Second if you using Internet Explorer with enabled Smart Screen, its check each site and file.If web site not in Microsoft whitelist, smart screen will block it. And same with downloaded content.

    It is enabled by default. To check it: left click action center --> open action center --> on west north/top left side --> change windows smart screen settings
