Bullguard internet security Firewall Advanced settings --> send allowed and denied programs to Bullguard for analysis keeps ticking itself on after a reboot of the system why ? <-- This I personally Untick because it's my business alone nobody else's what i choose to do with my computer and programs not Bullguards / I kinda find this a sneaky tactic by Bullguard. Personally i wish for this to be taken off by Bullguard as it's of no use to us the customer and what use is it of Bullguards yes I'm entitled to know why your requesting this data because it's a concern of Privacy. The main ? is why does it re-tick itself after reboot of the system when unticked by me in the first instance. ?

Perfectly legit ?

Hello Br!t!ShGaMeR,

The reason for adding the "send allowed and denied programs to Bullguard for analysis" is quite simple, namely it allows our users to contribute to their security, by allowing our developers to build a better list of known(trusted applications) versus unknown (potentially unwanted) applications. Other companies like Microsoft or Mozilla, have the same option in the form of "allow the application to send logs to the developers".

Whether you want to participate to this or not is, of course, entirely up to our users, which is why the option can be unchecked. The fact that the option is once again checked when you restart the computer is a reported bug and it will be fixed.

Thank you for your feedback!

I can confirm that 'non-persistent unchecking' of this option also happens on my computer (BIS Ver.14.1.281.3, Windows 7 x64).
