    Internet keeps freezing / Admin priv?

    Hello all,
    After spending 5 weeks with several parties, I'm going to give this a shot..

    I went from Windows 7 to Windows 8 Pro.
    I did a new install (Reformatted HD etc)
    So after Windows 8 installed with nothing else.. I am having problems with Browsing Internet / Network(?)

    If I google something and open up like 10 links, 4 of them keeps stalling with "Waiting for ......" at the bottom
    I need to close the browser and after sometimes after 5 - 6 tries, I am able to get a webpage again..

    I tried updating all the drivers for Windows 8 (Intel N-6250 Wireless Card).
    Also I tried hardwired, and also the same problem.
    This is driving me completely insane.. Spending weeks on something like this...

    I do have a router, Cisco E3000 I believe... could that be causing a problem as well for Windows 8 ?

    With Windows 7, I never had these type of problems.

    Any help, tips before I throw Windows out the door are welcome

    2nd problem is, how to get rid of those annoying messages about I need admin priv. for copying / moving files.
    All I do is hit OK for Agree and it does it's thing. The whole Account priv. is turned down..
    and I know for a fact that I am an Administrator, but in Windows 8 it's not really an admin anymore..
    Cause If I install something, it does it different as when I right click on it, and select install as Admin.
    In Windows 7 Admin = Admin..
    Now in Windows 8 Admin <> Upper Admin.. (hidden account).
    Is there a way to get rid of that?

    Thank you all

    Welcome to EightForums, pka4916. Good to have you.

    #1 Are you talking Modern (Metro) or desktop IE? Some other browser?


    There are other tutorials as well.

    Hope that at least points you in the right direction.

    Hi, and thank you.

    for #1, IE10 from the Metro Desktop and the Normal Desktop.
    Also tried later on Chrome.
    All having the same problem with wireless and wired.

    for #2 Thanks. So If I am right, Windows 8 does Not handle files the same way as a Windows 7 Admin.
    Since you need that Elevated Admin Rights. (the confirmation button that's showing in the Dialog boxes).

    Hi and you're quite welcome.

    No. Not the same. Another layer of protection. So you have #2 worked out then. Correct?

    So far as #1, I'm on my phone right now. I don't see your hardware posted in your profile and not sure if I can see it on the phone app. If you don't have it listed, please do so. I'll take a look as soon as I get to my PC.

    Number 2, I just have to deal with it. I looked at the other thread, but that was more for Apps and a global setting, but that would break Metro Apps..
    so I'll just have to hit ok everytime when it comes up..
    I will update my profile with all the other info as well. give me 2 minutes

    Hi. We can conclude it's a setting in 8 since you hard wired it, correct? I mean how can it be an ethernet and wireless card be wrong at the same time, right? But just to double check, in your OP you stated you had a Intel N-6250 Wireless Card, but in your specs you have it as a n_6150. Which is correct? Did you try to install the wrong drver by any chance?

    If that's not it, have you checked Internet proxy settings?

    Sorry. I made a typo.
    Is the same card, and i did not install the driver. Windows did that for me.

    I did go ahead and made a dual boot.. So its easier to do things.
    I created a new partition
    Installed windows 8
    Tested my problem.. Working fine.. :/
    Installed each component 1 by 1 (4 total) and checked in between.. Working fine..

    Now i am getting crazy... Why is it working... Just dumb luck
    Tried 9 x 15 browser pages and zero problems....

    So.... O.. Maybe i did something after all.
    So now installing windows update 12 updates 900 mb

    Lets see what happens after that..

    I remember installing frame network 2.5 and 4.0 for 2 apps later on.. Delphi xe2 and a newsreader. So i am skipping
    Those for now.

    Dumb question. My cisco router e3000 is not causing a problem right?
    Now im waiting till windows update is done, so i can test again.

    Btw. I love the app for the ipad, to read the forum.. Thats what i am using right now

    ok, so far everything is working..
    Installed office 2010, with updates, my programs that I use.. .net (I think it's called) 2.0 3.5 and 4.0
    still working fine..
    All I have left is Kaspersky 2013.. but I tried that at that time as well, and didn't make a difference..
    So I don't get it.. I am fighting this thing for weeks..
    I did a fresh install again...
    But... I guess I can make a HD image, and put the other one back and see if it fails..

    I did make a change last week on my router. (network name SSID)
    I had the 2.4 Ghz and 5Ghz network both the same name. like pkaworld now I called it pkaworld 2.4 and pkaworld 5

    Could that have anything to do with it???

    I think it to be a good idea to dual boot for now.

    It could be, but I don't see how renaming would cause a problem, but then I'm not that savvy. Names are for us. Machines read numbers. We just point an OS to a network with the name. It records the number. I'm wondering if your 7 was picking up the higher Ghz. We'll have to keep this in mind.

    I would suggest to just install the OS and let it run for 2 to 3 days to stabilize first before loading other software. This way you can tweak it first. There's enough to do setting up networks, email accounts, playing with apps, etc. Yes?

    I'm not one for 3rd party AV or maintenance software unless it's proven absolutely reliable. I use MS AV which is Defender now in 8. It's written for it and it's free. CCleaner (free version) is the only other one.
