Have you unchecked all the boxes that contains "HP ProtectTools" or "HP Security Suite"?

yes i did
I went through and disabled all non ms services and all startup items.
i will just start clicking them back on 1 at a time until i see what is affecting it.

You may need to disable it within the application itself or it will re-activate on startup.
