The process of Desktop Window Manager is ASLR-protected, what required us to make SuppressDwm64 use of debugging facilities. The offsets modified are the same all the time, but the base of process image differs every time the service is started.

Memory (in-RAM) patching, which is carried out by SuppressDwm64, is an efficient and safe way to apply the patch. To undo the patch, it is only necessary to restart the service. No files are modified physically, that is, in a permanent manner, since memory modifications are volatile.
