I don't know if this effects running things from the metro desktop,
but the smartscreen filter for IE is a registry setting.
I won't provide a direct link
but do a google search for "smart screen filter regedit"
and you'll find the setting.
You'll also may find an MSDN blog article about
"Mystery of the Forgetful Browser Settings"
concerning one of the Norton360 versions using this registry setting
to intentionally turn off smartscreen filtering.
Note: I agree with what was said above:

every Windows Vista I installed after that got the same
revision (as well as installation of other software that provided
a more user friendly way to tweak things like that).
I also agree with dilettante that many users will probably choose
to exercise the "off" setting for smartscreen filtering.
Also note: the last time I used IE was IE5.5 under Windows 98.
I've been using non-ActiveX-enabled,
"non-BHO-malware-friendly" browsers ever since then.
Hopefully metro has a way to "dis-engage" IE from the desktop.
This off forum thread
is along those lines.
--otherwise my use of that O/S may be for cross operating system testing
Note: I think there is also the option to
disable metro IE and leave desktop IE
, although for me some third party software
that offers the option to "completely remove IE from registry
and remove all IE installed files that are not critically needed for metro"
would be a great option as well.
I realize this is asking a lot..considering how deeply IE 10
is worked into metro and considering how it would severely
raise the rackels Microsoft, it would have to be a pretty bravo
outfit to release such a utility.
I know Chrome and Firefox have had multi-touch support on the desktop
for some time now, but don't know what the situation may be
for requiring IE on a windows phone with metro.
I know the Opera mobile has had some limitations in that context.
