    Metro apps won't connect to Internet

    I have tried everything. The Desktop connects just fine. Metro will not connect, the circle just keeps going round and round. I am signed in with my Live Account.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Update: I uninstalled Kaspersky 2013, and reinstalled. Now it works great.
