Chrome Software Reporter Tool

Sinds Chrome version 70. i see Chrome is runnning the tool: Software Reporter Tool
This progam uses many CPU-Cycles

I want to disable that tools and i found that it can be done by setting the properties of the fie: SwReporter. exe

I have added a PDF to show how

But when i do that i do not get the exact screen but a screen as i have added also in this post

How should i go further to fix that?

Additional Information

I wanted to disable the Chrome: Software Reporting Tool
But in the PDF-instructions i found (and added to this post) there is a difference in the instructions to fix that

I have added a second file (Screen-shot) of which message i got and that does not correspond with the message i got (see attached screenshot)

Perhaps the info in the attached PDF is from Windows-10, but i work with Windows-7

My problem is: How could i fix it that Chrome does not run the file: Swreporter.exe again.
The instuction in the PDF says: Push the button: Disable Inheritance, but as you can see i don not get this button in my screen shot

Google DO NOT recommend that you go that way.

Google recommend that the user reset settings from within in the browser. See Reset Your Browser Settings - Google Chrome Help

ariespan, had you tried reset the browser settings?

There is nothing in Chrome's setting to get rid of this "possible" spyware, as they do not even want you to know it exists.

It scans your PC for programs that might "interfere" with the Chrome experience, as asks you to remove them. Just what does "interfere" mean anyway, no other browser has concerns about this subject as they work solely as a separate browser that can co-function with anything on your PC. Does this go as far as searching through your private apps that have your pictures, diary, and personal notes that aren't acceptable in public discourse for good or bad reasons?

Can't be sure as there have many breaches and huge European fines against the above corporation.
