    Windows 10 "Program Compatibility" Horrible Spam


    Hello!

    Since my computer auto restarted last night for some reason there has been a Program Compatibility window that pops up about every 10 seconds and continually even after disabling the service for the Compatibility Assistant in services.msc then restarting as well as uninstalling the program it is stating is not compatible to no avail.

    However, if you're having any issues with the program you're getting this message for, then you should check to see if there may be a newer version of the program to update to, or put the program in compatibility mode for the latest OS version it supports.

    Neither of those worked, the regedit went through but gpedit.msc modification popped up with this error https://puu.sh/x9O53/ba29dde1d3.png . What I finally noticed was that while I did indeed delete the folder, it didn't finish all the way through and the RTSS.exe file remained. First I tried to re-install a new and the current version but the installers couldn't modify the exe then tried deleting it through cmd/powershell. After booting into safemode and deleting the exe the error messages stopped.

    Just to verify, did you restart the computer after using the disable .reg file from option 1?

    I'm glad to hear you managed to stop it by deleting the .exe though.

    Yes it was restarted afterwards.

    You could try reinstalling (newer version if available) then uninstalling. The uninstall may not have been completed correctly.
