Anyone else running Windows 11 with Bullguard and having issues? I am a Windows Insider, and have been running it for some time on several of my machines. I have, however, left Bullguard off of those machines as I did not feel it was fair to run the product on a yet-to-be released operating system. Now that Windows 11 is live, I have updated several of my prod systems including my gaming machine. While at first I thought everything seemed to be going swimmingly, however as I have gone into normal usage patterns I have started to feel the pain. My primary question is, what is the level of support for Windows 11 from Bullguard and its various sub-components? Are there known issues/spots to be avoided for now? General AV seems to be working, however I have noticed BG questioning a LOT more via the heuristics/behavioral detection engine with false positives and quaranteen making firs-run workflow exceedingly painful (especialy in VR as I have to take off the headset to go look at the physical screen to see that BG is in fact the reason I am sitting in darkness). I have also firmly  defined a pattern of absolute soul-crushing-beat-down-forced-to-hard-reset-machine basically EVERY time Gameboost tries get involved in a gaminmg session. I am on a top-end rig with 64GB RAM and NVIDIA 3090, and it's rare that I have anything take my system into such a level of infinite loop and apparent system interrupts that I cannot even shut it down or manage process'. I would appreciate some guidance here regarding some best practices regarding continued use of BG while in a Windows 11 environment to minimize frustration and avoid my having to uninstall it from my Windows 11 boxes.

@ EventHorizon

More specific to your concens, one of the laptops is an Alienware Area51m, i9-9900k CPU, Nvidia RTX 2070, 32GB RAM.

Like I said, no issues with Win 11, applications and games running normally.
