That sounds like a Windows issue. Have a look on Microsoft answers at Why can't I download programs in Windows 10?.

Probably Windows Defender Security Center. Open App & browser control. Set 'Check apps & files' to off

I think the comment is the answer but you might need the next steps also:

That sounds like a Windows issue. Have a look on Microsoft answers at [Why can't I download programs in Windows 10?](https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10-desktop/why-cant-i-download-programs-in-windows-10/55187660-7d07-4b79-bf73-8ccecd802620).

Probably *Windows Defender Security Center. Open App & browser control. Set 'Check apps & files' to off*

You might then not be able to install.

  1. Navigate to Start Menu > Settings > Apps > Apps & Features, under Choose where to get apps in the drop down box select Anywhere.
  2. Disable Defender while you install LibreOffice, see General Installation Issues (Windows)

When you have installed LibreOffice you will need to add LO to the list of allowed apps in Defender:

  1. Open the Windows Security by selecting the shield icon in the task bar or searching the start menu for Defender.
  2. Select the Virus & threat protection tile (or the shield icon on the left menu bar) and then select Ransomware protection.
  3. Under the Controlled folder access section, select Allow an app through Controlled folder access
  4. Select Add an allowed app and follow the prompts to add apps. You need to allow access to soffice.bin

If all these steps sound daunting, or you have Windows 10S and you don't want to upgrade, you can download and install a modified version of LibreOffice found on Microsoft Store but Microsoft will charge a fee. Cheers, Al
