Hello i am new to the Alfred Forum. I have been in the Information Technology field for over 10 yrs. I was experiencing the same issues with snippet auto expansion not working and it looks like different fixes for different people so i just wanted to tell everyone what fixed the auto expansion for me. I was using a Antivirus app called Webroot. webroot has a feature called secure keyboard entry. As soon as i disabled this...walla auto expansion worked. Just as an FYI this same webroot feature stops dictation on the MAC also. I hope this helps someone.
