I've just found out that the annoying issue of Razer starting an install for their Synapse software is actually a Rubber Ducky malware action. It's never been something I liked in the first place, and comes up on every machine I use a (newly purchased) Razer Bluetooth headset on, despite the fact their Synapse software is not something I want. Is there any way to stop this unwanted malware backdoor into my computer, or is it going to involve simply not purchasing any Razer hardware at all? I'd like to think Bullguard is actually set up to do that, but I can't find out where.



Thanks in advance.
