    Yeah I experienced that too. ESS is running generally fine but the weather app and other Metro apps doesn't function well with it.

    Hello,

    The Microsoft Windows 8 operating system is currently pre-beta code, so it is not surprising that security software behaves differently under it than on supported operating system releases, just like any other software which interfaces with the operating system at a low-level.

    Regards,

    Does disabling HIPS or switching it to learning mode resolve the issue?
