    Win 8 pro requires that I uninstall Intel (r) network Connections

    When I uninstall Intel R Network Connections per microsoft instructions I can not longer complete download as I have lost my internet connection. Message reads, Intel (r) Network Connections uninstall this app now because it isn't compatible with windows 8...running windows 7 on HP 6200 (1-year old). Spoke to customer service and could not answer...did Intel upgrade and still doesn't work and have paid for Windows 8 pro download and can not complete...anyone else have same problem or a simple solution...thanks.

    Try running the Windows upgrade advisor in compatibility mode for Windows 7 or earlier, also click Run as Admin, and further right click the Windows Upgrade 8 upgrade advisor to run as Admin was the only way I could get it to work right.
