This affects IE6-11, which means all versions of Windows affected.

See: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-US/library/security/2963983

See "Suggested Actions" in the above.

My suggestion, don't use IE, but Firefox.

Edit: Moved topic from Windows 8 to the more appropriate forum.~ Animal

But, if you use Adobe Flash you're still hosed on either.

Thanks for that RKilroy, completely missed it. Adobe has already issued an update. 13.0.0.206

I tried downloading the Microsoft Update, it didn't work.  Then I went and downloaded the file KB2961887 stand alone file, and installed it.  Once I restarted, the update did not work, I ended up getting the black screen of death.  I checked Windows Update again, and of course I still had one important update, and that was it.  This is the second go round with Microsoft Updates that have given me the black screen of death.  This is very aggravating.  I just installed it this time from Windows Update...I am going to restart, and see what happens.  Crossing my fingers....

Well thank goodness this time it worked.  I don't know how many times I've had to use my emergency disk to get going again.  If you lost power before, or were frozen, you could just hit the power button, and things would reload, and you'd be in business again.  Since I've had Windows 8.1, I have not found that to be the case.  If that happens, my computer will not recover on it's own.  I have to use the emergency disk.  Then I go back to Tweaking Registry, and then go back to the previous registry, then I have to restart again.  I just don't get it.

I downloaded it for Win8.1, x64, and it worked the first time.  It took about a minute to initialize, and a minute to install.
