Doing so will compromise a part of your security.

It would be better to add the conflicting applications to the ‘Image execution’ exclusion list.
If that doesn’t work you could try to remove these from the registry on your own risk.

To add an exception please open
Defense+ → Defense+ Settings → Execution Control Settings → Detect shellcode injection [Exclusions]
And add the affected executable(s) there.

In any case please file a bug-report with as much details as possible (preferable the mini-dump created by windows on BSOD). so dev’s can fix the issue faster.

Same problem here, but I only use the firewall, nothing else.
