Default Windows 7 applying compatability settings automatically...

How do I turn this off?

Steam.exe gave me some error in 7100. W7 decided to apply compatibility settings to it (annoyingly) and now it won't run. This is pissing me off.

How do I turn it off? Properties of Steam.exe doesn't show anything, yet when I run it, Steam is giving me issues.

How can I stop Windows 7 from applying all kinds of settings just because a program hiccups?

Have you tried forcing it to run in your desired windows compatibility mode manually? Im guessing that should overwrite the automatic settings.
