Cisco Anyconnect stops working on Windows 8.1 after Internet Explorer patch KB3021952

A recent patch to Internet Explorer (KB3021952) has broken Cisco AnyConnect v3 on Windows 8.1. I'm not able to test v4 as we don't have access to it. It looks like the concept of on-line\offline working has disappeared causing AnyConnect to become confused and believe that it is permanently offline.

The message I kept getting said that the VPN susbsystem was unreachable.

The article below mentions a registry change, but this didn't work for me. The comments suggested running the GUI part of Cisco AnyConnect in Windows 8 compatibility mode, and this indeed did work for me.

[Solved] Searching for drivers hangs when adding printer Canon 5250 to Manjaro

[Solved] Searching for drivers hangs when adding printer:

I had problems when trying to add my Canon 5250 to the 0.8.12 Manjaro release.

The system would lock up on searching for printers.

Followed this proceedure, with a slight modification:

sudo systemctl stop org.cups.cupsd.service

sudo systemctl disable org.cups.cupsd.service

sudo pacman -Rsn manjaro-printer

sudo pacman -S cups cups-pdf cups-pk-helper system-config-printer

Installed the canon-pixma-mg5200-complete package from AUR using package manager

sudo systemctl daemon-reload

sudo systemctl enable org.cups.cupsd.service

sudo systemctl start org.cups.cupsd.service

When I installed the AUR package, the computer rebooted (?) but I just carried on and it all worked

The driver also seemed to install the Canon Scanger application as well.
