AppHook - A Keylogger!

Hi There,
My Keylogger programme lists AppHook (whatever that is), as a Keylogger/Mouse recorder.
Should I be worried?
Thanks,
David

No need to worry. The application hooks in DisplayFusion are for hooking messages for window resizes, Win key presses for the Start menu, etc. We're 100% not logging key strokes or anything like that. Some antivirus apps will notify based on the possibility of using application hooks for nefarious purposes.

If you have any further questions at all, please don't hesitate to ask.

Thanks!

Is there any way to get rid of it? Every time I try to play Rainbow Six Siege, BattlEye is warning me : 16:47:09: Starting BattlEye Service...
16:47:16: Launching game...
16:47:29: Note: File blocks can be ignored if they don't cause problems with the game.

Hi Nick,

If you open the DisplayFusion Settings > Compatibility, you can add in your game and check "Disable Application Hooks", and it should fix that up.

Thanks!
