Host Intrusion Prevention System

Is it possible that the HIPS is blocking the network after a user overuse CPU and memory and is forced to reboot the computer, which then reboots but does not connect to the network anymore?

This is not inherent functionality of HIPS, but it might related to HIPS known issues.

1. Uninstall Microsoft QoS and reboot.
