Recently I had to re-install Windows, and now whenever I have HIPS active it will stop pretty much all applications from starting up at startup. I have tried going through the clean install instructions made by Chrion but they don’t help.
I’ve tried going to a clean configuration and just enabling HIPS to see if it was something I did wrong but the same issue occurs then too, so it can’t be something I configured wrong.
Edit: Diagnostics doesn’t find any errors.
I know it’s not much to go by but I don’t know what kind of information I should provide so just ask for anything you need to help solve this.

Edit with my solution: Basically with UAC on and HIPS on nothing would start, but with HIPS off the programs would start, I decided to try disabling UAC and see if programs started when UAC was off but HIPS was on and to my surprise they started, so I turned on UAC again so now I had UAC on and HIPS on and the programs still start on autostart now… So the solution was to turn off UAC in the registry, reboot, turn it on again, reboot… … That’s flipping* stupid but it worked.
