    I know thats offtopic but do you have anything similar for compattelrunner.exe?
    Have you tried to disable services like "Program Compatibility Assistant Service"?

    Try this, works on 2004 as well. But it is possible, that Windows Defender prevents malware like changes.
    Code:
    reg add "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer" /v "SmartScreenEnabled" /t REG_SZ /d "Off" /f
    reg add "HKCU\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\AppContainer\Storage\microsoft.microsoftedge_8wekyb3d8bbwe\MicrosoftEdge\PhishingFilter" /v "EnabledV9" /t REG_DWORD /d "0" /f
    reg add "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\AppHost" /v "EnableWebContentEvaluation" /t "REG_DWORD" /d "0" /f
    reg add "HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\System" /v "EnableSmartScreen" /t "REG_DWORD" /d "0" /f
    reg add "HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows Defender\SmartScreen" /v "ConfigureAppInstallControl" /t REG_SZ /d "Anywhere" /f
    reg add "HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows Defender\SmartScreen" /v "ConfigureAppInstallControlEnabled" /t "REG_DWORD" /d "0" /f
    takeown /s %computername% /u %username% /f "%WinDir%\System32\smartscreen.exe"
    icacls "%WinDir%\System32\smartscreen.exe" /grant:r %username%:F
    taskkill /im smartscreen.exe /f
    del "%WinDir%\System32\smartscreen.exe" /s /f /q
    Thanks a lot! Scoured the internet for a solution to disable the process and this is the only solution which worked! j00 R D4 M4N!

    del "%WinDir%\System32\smartscreen.exe" /s /f /q

    No need to delete smartscreen.exe!!!

    Simply disable Windows Security Service

    Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\SecurityHealthService

    Set Start to 4 to disable this. Smartscreen.exe will no longer run randomly in the background.

    This way you won't have integrity violations when you do an SFC /Scannow

    This doesn't work on the later releases, smartscreen still runs.
