Performace hit with Hyper V installed

I seem to be having a problem with having Hyper V installed on my machine. Only installed. Not running any VMs or anything. I don't know why but when I have it installed it causes severe screen tearing with web based video players when playing videos in full screen or a bigger size than the embedded video player. I have also noticed some serious performance hits while gaming as well.
Is there a fix for this other than having to install and un-install hyper V from windows programs and features every time I want to or have finished using it? I tried looking on google, but I seem to be the only person that's experiencing this or is even talking about it.

For some reason, when I enable Hyper V, I find that the system bus speed has decreased from 100MHz to ~97MHz. This is annoying, and surely MS should find a solution for this issue, not least because system bus speed can affect all other peripherals in the system.
