This is a transcript of my conversation with Bullguard about the logon security problem. It may have worked so I put it here for any of you with a similar problem.

[]: Hello
[Berndt]: Hello, welcome to BullGuard Live Support!
[]: Thank you
[Berndt]: IPlease give me more details bout your encountered issue and I will help you.
[]: My computer freezes when it boots. I believe this is connected to the BullGuard software
[]: It has been a long issue and I did fix it for a while by turning off Windows Defender
[]: But it recently started again and the only way I can now get the computer to work is turning off Bullguard
[]: When computer has frozen if I Cntr-alt-del then I get the message "Logon process has failed to create the security options dialog"
[]: I did wonder about downloading version 8.5 but I am not sure what version I am running. Under account it says "latest version installed" so does this mean it has automatically updated to 8.5?
[Berndt]: For what I understand, you are using the Windows Vista operating system. Is that correct?
