    The new smart manager OSD was driving me crazy, and unfortunately the old trick doesn't fix it.
    The OSD is now handled by OSDwindow.exe in "C:\Program Files\SmartManagerV4\OSD".

    I've decompiled this executable and made some changes to it so that the OSD no longer shows on my 2018 Aero15x. I figured I would share the fruits of my labor with you guys:

    Both the compiled binary and the source code are included for the sake of transparency.

    To use it:
    - Make sure you kill "OSDwindow" in task manager.
    - Navigate to C:\Program Files\SmartManagerV4\OSD
    - Rename the old OSDwindow.exe to OSDwindow.exe.bak
    - Copy the replacement executable from the bin directory in the zip file
    - Re-launch the new executable

    As always, this is at your own risk. I make no guarantee that this will work for any device other than the 2018 Aero 15x that I'm currently using.

    Cheers!
