Polling use of "Always enable pre-boot USB support" setting

Thanks in advance for any responses...

We have been trying to determine the best default configurations for our client base. Seems that without enabling the "Always enable pre-boot USB support (auto otherwise)" we end up with all sorts of strange USB mouse/KB issues. These have been wired or wireless and rather numerous since upgrading from 5.1.7 to 5.1.8.

Concern being to re-enable this setting breaks the Windows Safe Mode access via the F8 post boot protection login screen. If we enable this setting globally, I don't want to introduce more problems than I was expecting.

Any feedback is appreciated!
