digitalmars.D.learn - Windows Defender won't let me install DMD

I am trying to install the compiler and get started on learning D 
again ( attempted and stopped way back )

This is the error message I am getting. I am on Windows 10.

Windows Defender SmartScreen prevented an unrecognized app from 
starting. Running this app might put your PC at risk.

App:
dmd-2.084.1.exe
Publisher:
Unknown publisher

Additional question as a beginner. What do I need to install to 
get started.
Obviously I need a compiler (which one is best ). But I also want 
an IDE and so far it seems Visual D would be a best choice.

Ideas?

There was a error/oversight with the 2.084.1 release. It accidentally didn't get signed, you can try 2.084.0 if you are afraid of the warning. The next release (2.085.0) should be signed again.

Works. Thanks

I too am a beginner (both at programming and at D). I have been sticking to the dmd compiler (over others such as gdc or ldc) mainly because that is what the two reference books[1] I am using to learn D have been using.
 But I also want an IDE and so far it seems Visual D would be a 
 best choice.
I've been using vim as the syntax highlighting seems to work pretty well out of the box but mainly because I am not familiar with any IDEs. Personally, I find that keeping things simple at this point are probably better for the way I work and learn. The good news is that I have found the people here to be quite friendly and helpful when you run into issues. Good luck! Samir

Idiot me forgot to mention the two resources I have been using: (1) "Programming in D", by Ali Çehreli, available at http://ddili.org/ders/d.en/index.html (2) "Learning D", by Michael Parker, available at https://www.packtpub.com/application-development/learning-d

Visual D works well, as does Visual Studio Code with code-d plugin.
