Win8 Pro upgrade --> no Internet access outside of metro RRS feed

  • Question

  • Greetings!

    After upgrading my Win7 to Win 8 Pro I have basically don't have any internet access outside of Metro. In there, everything works, Google search, Windows updates, downloading new stuff from the store etc. When I'm on the "normal" Desktop however, no browser works (except on a very few select pages like Google) and none of my normal programs can connect to the Internet.

    Needless to say that before the upgrade everything worked just fine. Other Computers connected to that router have no Trouble either, just this Windows 8 one, its connected via cable if that is of any relevance. It seems like Windows is actually blocking the access of normal, non-metro programs, already tried deactivating Firewall etc., to no effect, help would be very much appreciated!

    best regards
