    Disabling SmartScreen in Windows 10 does not actually disable it


    Hello,

    I was trying to fix one of my partitions in Windows 10 so I tried to installed the program EASEUS from EaseUS | Data Recovery, Backup, Partition Manager & PC Utility Software. When I went to install I got a UAC message like the one shown below:
    Click image for larger version. 

Name:	smartscreentest.png 
Views:	144 
Size:	16.5 KB 
ID:	32533

    I then searched for how to disable this and went into the control panel to the following window:

    Click image for larger version. 

Name:	Windows_Smart_Screen_Filter_Settings_Disabled.png 
Views:	134 
Size:	9.5 KB 
ID:	32536

    And the options were grayed out (read-only)

    So I followed this guide:

    [Fix] Cant Change SmartScreen Filter Settings in Windows 8 and Later - AskVG

    And went through all of the steps for METHOD 1: Using Group Policy Editor (gpedit.msc).

    After this I could change the settings for Smart Screen and so I changed it to disabled.
    Afterwards I rebooted and tested running the installation exe file again and it came up with the smart screen UAC window again blocking me from using it.

    Anyways I am a Developer and I need to have access to installing all sorts of software as well as testing my own and I need help getting this issue resolved ASAP.

    Thank you


    My Ideas about why this is happening:
    When I updated to Windows 10 I was running Windows 8 with UAC disabled ( maybe that caused some registry issues )

    Use Windows 10 manager and you can disable it. At least on Win 10 Pro you can.

    Windows 10.4 Home 1709 x64

    I use this one (input into CMD as admin):

    reg add "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer" /v "SmartScreenEnabled" /t REG_SZ /d "Off" /f

    You could also try this:

    Disable the warning The Publisher could not be verified
    reg add "HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Associations" /v "DefaultFileTypeRisk" /t REG_DWORD /d 1808 /f

    Disable Security warning to unblock the downloaded file
    reg add "HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Attachments" /v "SaveZoneInformation" /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f

    Ive installed this program but I cannot figure out where the setting is for this. Any chance you could point me in the right direction.

    Ive tried all of these and unfortunately the smart screen still blocks me from running anything.

    Have you tried using the hidden administrator account? Maybe that could help you.
