    Windows 8.1 Store won't connect to Internet


    Hello, I've been using Windows 8.1 Preview and today I decided to load up the store and the store won't connect to the internet. Other apps work just find but the Store won't connect to the internet. It shows I have 28 updates to install from the store but when I click on the store icon just takes me to the can't connect to the store try again later.

    Just wanted to know if anyone else had this issue. Hope there is a fix for it.
