    Disable Desktop Window Manager (dwm.exe) permanently


    I believe its causing me to crash in certain applications, the option to disable is not available in services.msc

    Group policy maybe? Or registry?

    You do not want to disable it. I highly doubt that DWM.exe is the culprit. The fact that Windows 10 is still in trials until final release out into the wild after 7/29. You will have issues until third party software manufacturers get on board with making their software compatible with Windows 10.
