    Windows 8 Release Preview

    Netzero 4G Stick USB modem

    Has anyone had trouble with this? It works fine in Win 7, but when I switched to Win 8 Release Preview bad things began to happen. First, it obviously didn't work. Then, all of the USB ports were disabled, even though they claimed they were operational. The only fix was a "Refresh" to get them back. Netzero will not help-except to say that Win 8 is not on the recommended software requirements. Any ideas?....Thanks....rick

    I've had so many problems with this, and finally found the solution. It's so simple and you can blame Windows 8 for screwing up your computer by trying to 'protect' you.

    How to forever disable driver signature enforcement in Windows 8?

    All you need to do is:

Click ‘More PC Settings’. 3. Click ‘General’. 4. Scroll down, and click ‘Restart now’ under ‘Advanced startup’. 5. Click ‘Troubleshoot’. 6. Click ‘Advanced Options’ 7. Click ‘Windows Startup Settings’ 8. Click Restart.

    When you get to the screen press F7

    (i believe it only lasts until your next reboot)
