    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.

Evening, I'm normally fairly good at troubleshooting and figuring out why crashes occur, but this has been bugging me for a while now and despite numerous hardware changes / reinstalls, it still occurs. Basically, I built a system for running Virtual Machines in Hyper-V for testing. Decent...

Hyper-V in Virtualization
I can't run this computer in Hyper-V because the Hyper-V platform is grayed out? This is a snip from the computer and it says I can run in VT-x so why is that?
Title says it all. Before I installed Hyper-V, Windows shows all 8 threads. . . After, only 1, and VMs were definately sluggish. Has anyone else had this issue or know how to fix it?
