    Certain Internet Actions Blocked


    I am running Windows 8 (64-bit) and have been experiencing weird "blocking" actions whilst online. 1: When using Microsoft Outlook 2010 (32-bit), all works fine until I try to open an e-mail with hyperlinks or attached photos in it that is being viewed in "preview" mode. frequently (but not always), Outlook crashes and tries to recover itself. 2: When in Facebook, I am unable to post or to get any response when clicking on "like" or most (but not all) other links. (I must use Mozilla Firefox to be able to use Facebook). 3: Some sites that used to work just fine in Windows 7 (64-bit), under Internet Explorer 9, now only work in Compatibility Mode in Internet Explorer 10. It seems to me that IE 10 may be the culprit. I say this, because everything was back to full functionality for a few hours after the latest Flash update was installed. I have also considered that Norton Internet Security 2013...(confirmed compatible with Windows 8) may be the problem, but disabling it does not correct the issue. Any ideas/suggestions?
