    What is not letting you download? The Windows Store, your Web Browser?

    It did not let me download anything.. It did not even let me reinstall windows, which I eventually managed with the sony vaio utility. I reinstalled windows, and now it says that even though the computer is connected, the browsers do not load... Any idea for that?
