Turns out this is because of Sophos Antivirus. This is because of the webscanning component.

To fix do the following:

  1. Create a key named Webscanning under the Sophos key:

    32-bit:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Sophos\Webscanning

    64-bit:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\WOW6432Node\Sophos\Webscanning

  2. Create a DWORD registry key named SuppressBHOLoader with a value of 1 at the above location"
