Windows 10: Graphics Driver kept crashing (resolved), however Windows blocked app

    Graphics Driver kept crashing, but Windows blocked app

    I resolved the driver issue, and Diablo 3 plays like a champ, however the game that originally caused the driver crash, which lead to a few BSODs, was SWTOR.exe. Launcher.exe that updates the game files and handles authentication works fine, and it goes through the file integrity check, but it stops at 100% and "Play" is greyed out. My guess is that launcher.exe tries to run swtor.exe and the OS prevents it from launching. This is a pain in the ass.

    Most of the research I've seen with "blocked apps" or EXEs relates to SmartScreen, not a driver issue. I've checked the file properties, the Task Manager, and other seemingly logical locations, but I can't find where to unblock the EXE. It's an 18+GB download, so reinstalling is the nuclear option.
