    eset smart security...if you have window 8.1 pro you can install software last activity view and check if this happen only with me or its a bug in software itself i.e appearance of Chinese symbol.

    windows 8.1 Update 1 Pro 64bit


    Is your current version of eset smart security up to date and compatible with Windows 8.1.

    I would uninstall it using their removal tool if available and see if any changes and speed. You could always reinstall it latter.

    The problem is that when you are multitasking between here and Facebook and watching tv. It gets you into trouble. I always figure that if someone catches that I was too short on the response. They are going to ask for clarification.

    I will state one thing though. Windows 8.x.x has made it a lot more difficult in diagnosing problems that were easier to diagnose in Windows 7. It is getting people to clarify if they are attempting to do something in the Metro Interface or Desktop. Also you have the fact that Microsoft messed with everyone's heads. By making it sound that Metro is the only interface. Most have forgotten that there is still the desktop out there. Due to majority have been spending a lot of time on tablets and/or smartphones and forgot a lot of skills that they had to use with the older OS's.

    It is like going through Physical Therapy/Occupational Therapy after a major accident. You have to retrain their minds for those skills they have forgotten about. The other is that most people just turn on their computers, log in and open up the Web Browser. But never dig deeper into what the OS is all about. They have this fear that they are going to break something. If they look around in the various folders, or run certain commands in the Command Window.
