Whatpulse not counting and crashing

Whatpulse not counting and crashing
Since a couple of weeks Whatpulse 2.4.1 on Windows 7 x64 is not always counting keys in "Steam"-Games, especially Borderlands 2 and Borderlands The Pre-Sequel. There may be others but those two stuck out to me. Clicks, Uptime and Traffic are counted though.
I tried fixing it with exiting the game and exiting Whatpulse, but if I restart Whatpulse it keeps crashing until ich restart the whole system.
Reinstalling Whatpulse and WinPcap didn't help.

Here is what the app.log looks like:

RE: Whatpulse not counting and crashing
Just found out, WP counts Keys in Games after a reboot, but stops counting in e.g. Borderlands The Pre-Sequel after pulsing.

Installing Whatpulse 2.4 doesn't count too In-Game, but I can restart it without crashing like 2.4.1.

RE: Whatpulse not counting and crashing
If you're running the client as administrator (which you are), there are still applications which can block the client from receiving any input. Antivirus/malware/protections are known to do that, but some games are programmed badly and take a exclusive hook on the keyboard and/or mouse. There's not really anything you can do about that, except ask for the game developers to basically "not do it that way" ;-)

Thank you for answering!

I disabled my Antivirus, it made no difference. I get the exclusive keyboard and/or mouse hook, but it's not that it is not counting, it's not alwys counting.

How about the crash when restarting WP?
