I don't know if you can have your cake and eat it to? Recording keystrokes is considered a security risk by many. It doesn’t explain why SnagIt has been excluded. It cannot capture keystrokes.

Have you tried contacting Strikeforce Technologies or checked to see if there are setting allowing you to exclude programs "i.e. SnagIt" from being blocked? This is the first place I would look.

TechSmith’s Camtasia can capture keystrokes. The recorders probably share a lot similarity under the hood. I don’t know if there’s remnants of keystroke capture imbedded in the SnagIt recorder? And that’s why it’s being blocked. It seems unlikely, I’m just throwing it out there.

If you can’t resolve it through PrivacyProtect settings or contacting them.

You can run it by SnagIt tech support. I’d be interested to hear if and how you get it resolved. Or even if you can’t with disabling the program as the remedy.

An acquaintance of mine put a "key logger" on his son's computer and the recorder on his own. It allowed him to see what his 12 year old was up to (spying).  I mentioned to him that the company that created the software was now getting up to the second information on everything he and his son were doing.

Well,
 That sounds like an illegal practice by software provider. What makes you think they are doing such a thing???
If the person running the software was foolish enough to agree and digitally sign into an agreement allowing the company collect that information.That's on them.
I don't understand how else this could happen?

So I'm curious to see or read something covering this }:>)
