    Access internet from desktop but not from Metro Apps


    I have installed Windows 8 RP, and everything works fine, except I cannot access internet from metro apps: IE, Store, New, Mail etc. Does not access internet, even though I have access to internet from Desktop?
    I have tried everything, and googled for hours without any useful result.
    Does anyone have any suggestion?

    Kind regards

    From what I've read about this problem running the system file corruption scan in an elevated command prompt > sfc/scannow followed by a reboot which does the repair.

    Then run the DISM scan to fix the component store corruption > Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth then reboot and run the sfc/scannow again to make sure everything is fixed.

    This should take care of the store going online problem.

    Hi again
    I find out that PRIVOXY was the problem. Once I deactivate the Proxy settings in IE10, everything start working

    Hey There,

    Recently I Had The Same Problem, You Can Ever:

    • Downgrade Your PC
    • Installer Fiddler 4 Beta And Use That To Debug The Problem

    Heres How To Use Fiddler
    Download It And Open,

    Click On Windows 8 Debug And It Will Ask Some Questions Then it Should Fix it If Not As I Said, Just downgrade Your System or Even Dual Boot It Until There is An Update What Fixes It ( if there is A Update)
