    Yes, you can do this with a registry edit. This will take 3 registry values.

     

    Go to Start and type   regedit.exe  in the Search box.

     

    In the Results, right click  regedit.exe  and select the 'Run As Administrator' option.

     

    In the Registry editor, navigate to the following location.

     

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows

     

    Right click the 'Windows' key and select  New / Key from the menu.

    Rename the New Key  AppCompat     (Case Sensitive)

    Press the F5 key to refresh.

     

    Select the new   AppCompat  key.

     

    1. In the right side window, right click and select New / DWord (32bit) Value  from the menu.

     

    Rename this value to   DisableWizard  (Case Sensitive)

    Double click the new value to see the details.

    Place a   1   in the Value Data box.

    Click OK.

     

    2. Repeat this procedure and name the Value   DisablePCA 

     

    3. Repeat the procedure again and name the Value    DisableEngine

     

    *NOTE: the Key and Values are all 'case sensitive', make sure they are all named exactly as shown.

     

    Press the F5 key again to refresh and exit the registry editor. Reboot the computer.

     

    Hope this helps.

    I don't have a clue what you mean?

     

    I just answered your question about how to turn off the Compatibility component without using Group Policy.
