Bullguard 9.0 to fix Windows 7 Sharing Homegroup Issue

I had recommended Bullguard to several people around because :

1. It is based on BitDefender engine which is one of the best. I will post in a near future post about a 0 day work/virus which Symantec, Kaspersky has failed and Bitdefender has caught.
2. It works in Windows 7 and the prompts is relatively acceptable. Some solution simply has too much prompt that makes it non-productive. I do not want to spend more time clicking [OK], [Remember this] then reading my email or doing my other things.

Anyway, this post is about an issue that related to Bullguard 8.7. I am using Windows 7 x64 and having issue connecting to shares and Homegroup in Windows 7. This only happens after I have Bullguard installed. As I am already a paying customer, I simple email for support and within 1 hour, I got the following:

BullGuard Support Message

Thank you for your understanding.

I am sure this sound only like good news. I am certainly looking forward to having Bullguard 9.0 and the issue resolved. Actually sharing is not a live and death thing, I could still share via my Home Server and my Remote Connection, but its just FAST using windows sharing. Thats a fact. Nothing to do with security. Just fast.
