How to share keyboard and mouse from Mac to Windows 7 PC?

After messing around with Synergy for the last 3 hours, it appears to have a major bug related to the keyboard and Lion as server. So Synergy is out of the equation.

Can anyone suggest another cross-platform free or paid software solution to share my Mac keyboard and mouse with the Windows 7 PC next to it?

Thanks!

    I always use a KVM switch, but that is kind of a old fashioned way of doing it.

      Bluetooth keyboard and trackpad though, I dont think any KVM does that.

    My Daughter is able to access my Windows 7 PC from Her Mac using Remote Desktop, essentially eliminating the need to move the physical equipment.

      Thanks, but not really related. I have the screen here, I want to use it, not remote desktop into it.

          I found this, 
          http://www.amazon.com/Zonet-Kvm3324W-4-Port-Switch-Bluetooth/dp/B00180IVHA

          Still researching... I had troubles with Synergy and setup the KVM with a older Mac usb keyboard and mouse. But if I can find a forum where someone has used this one with a Mac I am going to give it a go on my setup.

          Interesting, I know it says it has bluetooth technology, but I dont think that means it will work with keyboards. LEt us know if you find someone who can confirm though .

          Did some research, found some approaches and ideas.

          Alot of forums are talking about using a regular KVM and using a usb doggle, but I see some problems with that... I am just going to try it myself and see what happens.
