Recently I was trying to install a Graphic tablet driver on my Windows 10 machine but for some reason, Windows was blocking the driver installation software. The error message was “This app has been blocked for your protection” as shown below.
To fix this issue we have to make some changes in “Local Group Policy Editor” in Windows 10.
Type gpedit in a search bar in your Windows menu & click on “Local Group Policy Editor” as shown below.

Now double click on Local Policies as shown below.

Now on the right side look for a property named “User Account Control: Run all administrators in Admin Approval Mode” as shown below.
Now double click on “User Account Control: Run all administrators in Admin Approval Mode” property to open up it’s settings as shown below.

Restart your computer & this time your Application should work fine. If any problems let me know in the comment section below.
