    ESET NOD32 v5 anti-virus installed on my Win 8 but HIPS wouldn't run. I didn't experience any lock-ups though until this week, after the latest Windows updates. Then Win 8 would lockup after I did the Win Key + L to lock the screen. I couldn't get back in, and would have to re-boot.

    Now I am using Norton IS and Malwarebytes Anti-malware, everything went well.
