Hi Greg,

No, that is not normal. Try uninstalling flash and reinstalling it.

OK, I've uninstalled/re-installed and that issue is gone. CPU on pages with flash is way to high. Overall it maxes out at 100 percent. Is this normal?

That does not seem normal either. Does it stay on 100%, or does it just peak and then drop?

It stays there. Also, I closed the browser and re-opened it. The multiple processes are back, hmm. When the multiple processes are listed in task manager, CPU drops back down to normal. Do I need to do a total search and destroy, file and registry remnants of Flash Player before a re-install of it? These multiple instances of Flash could be a result of DefenseWall but I'm not sure about that.

When in doubt, test. Try disabling DefenseWall, if you suspect it is the issue.

Appears to be a known issue with FlashPlayer's way of doing things when one is running DW.

That's good to hear. At least we can identify the problem. Could I suggest Microsoft Security Essentials with a Malwarebytes scan every week?

Hi Greg,

it is well known issue between DW and Flash when you use IE. When you use other internet browser the issue will gone.
Ilya - DW developer knows about it and he try to find the solution.
Official DW forum you will find here:
Gladiator Security Forum -> DefenseWall HIPS

There are many teachable threads worth to read.
