I am very very frustrated.
None of my windows 8 metro apps are loading. Most say I am offline, when I can clearly go to desktop and be connected.
It is not the resolution b/c I was using the same (native) resolution before without a problem. That did not work.
It is not the proxy b/c I am NOT behind a proxy. That did not work.
I tried changing the UAC (user account control) settings to default or always notify. That did not work.
I tried disabling the firewall. That did not work.
I tried disabling my antivirus (and Windows Live Defender). That did not work.
I tried deleting my user account and recreating it. That did not work.
I am running out of options and this is ridiculous. I know I can simply use the desktop for everything online and forget about the metro apps... BUT I purchased this upgrade! I could have kept Windows 7 if I was only going to use the desktop!
I can try to refresh my computer... but I have MS Office 2010 which I installed after the upgrade, and don't want to go through that reinstall all over again.
Please Microsoft, provide a solution for this... or it might become your Vista all over.
After I got tired of trying everything I went on and refreshed my copy of Windows 8... That did not work!!! I went back and none of the metro apps work, they still say I am not connected to the internet when I am.
This is just ridiculous.
