I am trying to install some software, (at this particular moment I want to install VirtualBox, although this issue has happened with other software), and I have to click "Allow" in System Preferences, in the Security & Privacy -> General window. When I click on it, nothing happens, and the button and message stays there.
I looked online, and all of the solutions say that there is some kind of program running that captures/forwards mouse clicks and such, and thus I am not "directly" clicking on the Allow button.
The problem is that I don't know of any programs that I'm running that do this.
I am on a Macbook Pro 13 inch 2016 with touchbar, running macOS High Sierra
- I am not connected remotely
- I have tried restarting my computer
- I have tried running the installer through terminal, with and without the sudo command
- I have tried right-clicking and clicking on "open" on the .pkg file
- I have tried unlocking the system preferences page before clicking "Allow"
- I tried re-downloading the .pkg file
