EP just sent this in:
Adobe has released another Flash Player security update on Feb. 20, 2014 here:
and I saw this article on Tweaking.com 10 days ago on fixing the high CPU usage
and improving performance with Microsoft Security Essentials here:
articles/pages/fix_high_cpu_ usage_of_microsoft_security_ essentials,1.html
I had been disabling real-time protection in MSE on some old XP/Vista computers
because of the high processor usage but using the tips on that Tweaking.com article
made MSE use less CPU resources and scans are much faster and now enabling
real-time protection won’t slow down those old XP/Vista machines that much.

If you’re seeing bizarre Flash behavior with IE 11, you aren’t alone – and the problems exist with Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 8.1.

This just in from EP:
Adobe has released new security updates for Flash Player versions 11.7 and 11.9 for Windows in Adobe security bulletin APSB13-26: http://www.adobe.com/support/security/bulletins/apsb13-26.html
There are some problems with Internet Explorer 11 under both Windows 7 and Windows 8.1.
First problem – Google and Outlook Web Access don’t seem to work correctly with IE11 on Win8.1 as mentioned at The Register site: http://www.theregister.co.uk/2013/10/21/internet_explorer_11_breaks_google_outlook_web_access/
Second problem – blurry fonts occurring on IE11 on Win7 SP1 as mentioned in this recent Softpedia.com article: http://news.softpedia.com/news/Internet-Explorer-11-for-Windows-7-Blurry-Font-Issues-398251.shtml
In short, those using any version of Windows with Adobe Flash Player should install the most recent flash player security updates. And those using Windows 7 should be using either IE9 or IE10 but do not upgrade Internet Explorer to IE11 until the problems with IE11 get resolved.
Thanks, as always, EP!

And reading this Majorgeeks.com April 9 story about Avira & Windows 8 support here:
php?id=38446it looks like Avira will soon have their antivirus products certified by Microsoft as Windows 8 compatible in the upcoming weeks. When it comes to Windows 8 compatibility, Avira seems to be pretty late to the party…so to speak.

I honestly didn’t see this one coming, not from a million miles away.
I can’t begin to imagine how Silverlight developers must feel – along with the corporate types who signed off on developing Silverlight sites.
