Kaspersky antivirus causes Skype to freeze and drops calls
I had an ongoing issue with Skype on one of my Windows 8 PCs. Skype was very unstable, would often freeze during audio and video calls and even when chatting. I went through number of Skype and Windows updates (including Windows 8.1), but the issue was not going away. This was an intermittent problem, it didn't prevent from using Skype, but was rather annoying. Skype would never crash completely. If the freeze happened when chatting, I just had to wait 10-20 seconds for Skype to get responsive again. If it happened during a call, the call would drop completely and I would have to re-dial.
Facebook Android app pushes random notifications to remind about itself
I'm not a heavy Facebook user, but tend to check it on average few times a week. Facebook normally sends a push notification to your phone when somebody posts on your wall, comments on a photo you uploaded, or does something similar concerning yourself. This is all well and good and if I visit Facebook at least once a day, it all works as expected.
