    Windows defender is your problem, add any directory you don't want to protect to the exclude list. Defender has a habit of not reporting things it blocks or deletes. I'm not sure mdl approves of such questions, but I'm sure my answer is legit.

    Is Windows SmartScreen enabled on your system?

    It should be your NET Framework, some keygen or crack made by using NET Framework 2.0-3.5
    Just install it from "add/remove windows feature"
    I also get issues by that and now it's no problem, windows defender don't block anyway

    yes I agree with p00ky.Whenever I run any exe some antimalware thing runs and my pc hangs for few seconds.
    Turn off windows defender and install some other antivirus.

    Other antiviruses are more sensitive to keygen/crack, especially Kasper
    I had no problem using my crack,keygen, while running Windows Defender
    The problem should be your net framework, if you say you still can use compability mode
    (if detected by defender, it should be quarantined already)

    I agree, it could be that they need .NET 2.0-3.5 installed. Several apps I use like that depend on the older .NET.

    Sounds like you have what MalwareByte would do, taken care of lol.

    BTW, Both MalwareByte (slightly limited) and HDSentinel (dos/linux) offer free versions as well, just in case you were unaware. :vertag:

    I must say, it's not only cracks and keygens that fail to work.

    Most programs I try to install experience errors and even fatal errors during installation. Running them in Compatibility mode does little to help. I installed .NET 3x and 2x, but it does little to help.

    Perhaps the fact that Windows 8 relies entirely on the MinWin kernel unlike Windows 7, which was running in mixed mode causes a lot of confusion.

    Just so you know, please don't ever install .NET 1.x, because it's grossly incompatible and you may have to do a PC Refresh, which hurts a lot.

    Probably the safest thing to do right now would be to enable Hyper-V and run whatever is incompatible inside, which by the looks of things seems to be a lot of software. Maybe Microsoft will resolve this issue down the road but right now Windows 8 is not even released to mass consumers, so until then, we have to make do with whatever we have.

    Just to not get your hopes high, I must say Microsoft are highly unlikely to back off from The New Way, just for the sake of supporting the mass of dead, unsupported, insecure programs that still haunt the ecosystem like ghosts of the past. Probably that's why they baked Hyper-V so deep into the core of the OS. Want compatibility ? There is your VM, use it.

    Makes a lot more sense than making Windows 8 too complex for the sake of compatibility.

    EDIT - I just made a fresh Windows 7 SP1 install inside a Hyper-V VM and I attempted to install the software there. Installation ran without any errors and all programs mentioned above worked like a charm, so it's definitely deeper than Smart Screen and NET frameworks. We just have to learn to live with the new MinWin kernel and no, Microsoft will not fix this, because it's too deep into the OS.
