    I'm having a lot of programs that want to create global mouse hooks, one example is BSplayer. Is this a false positive? Why would a video player want to create a global mouse hook? It seems to work OK regardless.

    Also, when I ran Hamachi durning learning mode, I got a warining it tried to create a driver. I was unable to let it do so, and later in the configuration screens, the option was greyed out? Hamachi seems to work fine now - do I need to do anything now that PG is in normal mode?

    I had the same problem as U have with BSplayer, i also had to allow bsplayer access to physical memory or else it would crash when trying to play files.

    Do U by any chance use the kaza mega codec pack or something like it?

    That seemed to be the cause of PG suddenly alerting me about bsplayer & other media players (wmp 10, winamp, etc) I know it was clean as i always check the new versions of the klite mega codec pack with multiple AV/AT scanners.

    As fo Hamachi i can only think that first time it ran it needed to install a driver, best thing to do would be a full system scan with your AV & anti spyware apps to make sure.

    When in learning mode you will still get an alert but PG remembers the driver install for after a reboot and then allows the driver.

    Allowing global hooks on trusted programs that are on the protection list should not be a problem, unless you use all the programs functions you may never know whether they are really needed or not :)
