Keyboard protector ActiveX control crashes VirtualBox

Since the banks are all forced to use ActiveX, all Korean internet banking users have to install this kind of programs. But these programs crash VirtualBox.
And this is not only to me. Every users have this.
I wish you can read Korean.

This procedure does not requre any personal informations. Any accounts, certificates are not needed.
Anyone can try this safely.
Since I guess you are not familiar with Korean web-sites, I attach screenshots. The file name is

  1. open up IE and go to:
  2. some dialog pops up. click 'OK' button.
  3. should install XecureWeb Control v7.0.
  4. try to login to the site (See 003.png from but should install Client Keeper KeyPro Keyboard Protector. (This is a trouble maker.)
  5. login to the site. See 005.png from
  6. XecureWeb Control program pops up. you can type any key there.
  7. can confirm the crash for certain.

This is not a problem that only Client Keeper Keypro Keyboard Protector is producing. All Keyboard Protectors (SoftCamp Secure KeyStroke, nProtect KeyCrypt, K-Defence8 Control too) are making this.

While Keyboard Protector is running, any keyboard input crashes VirtualBox.
Hence using On-Screen Keyboard can be a workaround.
After Keyboard Protector is closed, can use the keyboard.

From duplicate defect 1342:

One reason I need virtualbox is to run XP Pro on my Ubuntu installation. I need XP to do my internet banking, and here in Korea all banks require Internet Explorer since their security checks are ActiveX controls.

There is some ActiveX control with the bank mentioned below that is causing VirtualBox to crash with a bluescreen (see attachment). As soon as I try to type some text in the login field, the system crashes. I've tried this site with VMWare Server, and it has no problems dealing with these ActiveX controls...

Even though all text is in Korean, you should be able to reproduce the problem by following my steps below. A lot of ActiveX controls will be installed the first time you access the bank.

In pic 1 below, click on the button that I've indicated. After all ActiveX controls have been installed, try typing some text in the login field. You will immediately get a blue screen as in pic 2.

You can use On-screen Keyboard included on Windows XP to escape from BSOD. I rad on forum that MMORPG game Maple Story also makes crash Virtualbox, Isn't it related with this bug?

I found similar bug also happen on VMware Workstation 6.0 and 6.5 beta. The difference is VirtualBox crashes every time when type something, but VMware crashes randomly with running the ActiveX control.
