Eset kills Windows 8.1 aero

Was wondering why I haven't been running ESET AV on my Win 8.1 (forgot lol) so I installed it once again.  Everything works fine till I reboot then I discover  I no longer have Aero and I have a black bar from the right edge going roughly 1/8th way in from bottom to top that is on top of everything I load.

 

I uninstall ESET and all is fine again.

 

I would really like to know why this is happening, any help appreciated

Does temporarily disabling HIPS and restarting the computer make a difference? If not, does renaming C:\Windows\System32\drivers\ehdrv.sys in safe mode solve the issue?

Thanks for the reply, disabling HIPS works nicely.

 

Of course this is not a solution. I merely wanted you to narrow it down to the particular module. HIPS is a crucial protection module that should stay enabled along with other protection modules.

Please carry on as follows:

- re-enable HIPS

- clear your HIPS log

- temporarily enable logging of blocked operations in the advanced HIPS setup

- reproduce the problem

- disable logging

- post the records from your HIPS log here.
