Some URL addresses that I use frequently were blocked MSE
So I had to install Avast to solve my problem…
If these URL addresses were blocked by MSE
1) you weren't running Windows 8 --no such animal as MSE on W8
2) the URL's were blocked obviously for a reason -- you can set exceptions though.
If AVAST allowed access while MSE didn't then it also proves my point --What USE is this type of AV system if every time a URL is blocked you find another program to get round it.
Please understand how W8 Security actually works before mentioning MSE blocks a URL.
What can sometimes happen is that Windows defender in W8 will issue a WARNING message saying that a program or file isn't commonly downloaded and you are given the choice to download it or not. - I think that's quite a decent feature.
