    Can't disable smartscreen.exe on Windows 11 22h2


    I don't want smartcreen.exe to run on my computer. I disabled it on Windows 11 Pro using local group policy editor, but since updating to 22h2 this morning I can't stop smartscreen.exe from running everytime I turn on my computer. Windows security pane shows smartscreen as "off" for all reputation-based categories: check apps and files off, smartscreen for edge off, Phishing Protection off, potentially unwated app blocking off, and smartscreen for store apps off. Using group policy editor I disabled smartcreen for Edge, file explorer and phishing protection. It also shows as "off"

    :)

    Smartscreen blocking an EXE

    I do not get an option to save the password (nor would I think I would want that). What I am getting is the Smartscreen popup which states Windows Smartscreen prevented an unrecognized app from running. Saving a password would by pass a check so that does
    not seem like a good idea.

    Running as administrator did not change anything. Smartscreen still popped up stating it was an unrecognized app.

    The application is Action! PC Football. I installed the game and it ran fine. They provided an update (which was a new EXE) and that ran fine. They have provided a newer update and that is the one getting the popup.

    Since they are saying they compiled the code in the same way, why is Smartscreen flagging this version and not a prior one.

    The FAQ did not help. It implied I was getting a message from a browser and it is from trying to run the actual program. The other suggestion in the FAQ was to disable Smartscreen. If that is the recommendation by Microsoft, then I fail to understand
    why they provide a check they recommend disabling?
