Mouse Without Borders Doesn't Work With UAC Prompt Open

Attempting to determine if an element of Bullguard could be why this happens.  If so, is there a convenient way around the issue?  Thx...

BTW, Mouse without Borders gives the message that the keys do not match in MWB on the two machines as soon as a UAC prompt appears on the system running Bullguard.  There isn't a problem with the keys matching, however.  I really like BG so far, so I would like to see if I can find a way to make things work.  I was thinking maybe Bullguard auto-encrypts keyboard activity at times, but it's just a guess...

In order to check if the problem is BullGuard related and, if so, which exact BullGuard plugin causes the issue, here is what I recommend:

1. Double-click on the BullGuard icon in the System Tray and open the application, or open it using the icon from the desktop, or from Start > Programs > BullGuard.

2. Click on the "Settings" option from the upper part of BullGuard's window and click Advanced from the top.

3. From the left panel of the window, choose "General" > "Main" and uncheck the "Allow BullGuard to protect its components against termination" option.

4. Restart the computer and check if the issue persists.

5. Open BullGuard > "Settings" and navigate to the "Antivirus" section from the left panel of the window and turn off the module by clicking on the button next to "Antivirus Protection".

6. Click on the back button from the upper left corner of BullGuard and check if the issue persists.

7. Go to the "Firewall" section and disable this BullGuard engine, then click on the back button.

8. Test if the problem is still there.

9. Navigate to the "Vulnerabilities" section and turn off the module.

10. Check again if the issue persists.

11. Go to the "Backup" section and disable this BullGuard engine, as well.

12. Check if the problem persists.

14. Next, turn the "Game Booster" off.

15. See if the issue persists.

16. Click on "Pc Tune Up" and turn it off.

17. Again, check if the issue is still there.

18. Select "Parental Control" on the left. On the right side, check whether you have an active profile. If there is none, then skip this step. Otherwise click Manage profiles, right-click on the profile and choose Disable.

19. Check if the problem was remedied.

20. Turn off the Home Network Scanner.

21. Check if you still experience the problem.

22. Right-click the BullGuard icon in the System Tray and select "Exit" then check if the problem is still there.

Once you have pinpointed which plugin causes the issue, make sure you retrace the steps above and turn everything back ON! 

If this proves to be due to BullGuard, please contact the support department communicating which exact BullGuard plugin causes the issue.
