Devicecensus.exe stopped working


Since Tuesdays updates, every day I log in I get a red 'x' in reliability monitor stating Devicecensus.exe stopped working.

This is not after every boot it's a scheduled task I think.

I tried turning off all my privacy settings, it still happens.

Removing my anti virus (Eset Internet Security) has stopped the daily errors.
