    Is Startmenux safe ?

    where are you getting the Start Menu X program, rufford155? did you get it from here? if so, contact the maker of the program and inform them that the Malwarebytes app is detecting their software as suspicious. maybe even report the problem in the Malwarebytes forum as well.

    No sound in some website videos + Confused about Drivers

    Latest Version of Adobe Flash Player

    I need to point out that the v32.0.0.223 Flash Player version is a non-security release as it only contains some new bug fixes but does not fix any new security vulnerabilities as noted in the Flash Player 32 release notes. Also Microsoft has not yet issued this new version for Windows 8.x & 10...

    Not sure if system is UEFI capable

    my dad has a Toshiba touchscreen laptop (C55Dt-A5306) [the System SKU is PSCFWU] that is definitely UEFI capable (with pre-installed Win8.1 home) though I plug the usb stick to the left side usb 2.0 port for that to be bootable as it may not boot from a usb 3.0 port

    lost among all updates in Win8.1

    I agree with this list of updates except for KB3184143 which I find safe to install as the KB3184143 prevents unwanted upgrades to Win10 and removes some GWX stuff

    April 9, 2019 - KB4493446 (Monthly Rollup) for Windows 8.1

    it looks like the KB4493446 monthly rollup update also causes problems with Avira and Avast as well. they also recommend removing this update until they can provide new fixes for their software. Why does my system run very slow? Avast Knowledge Base
