    I'm not running Avast but I did try turning off the Windows Firewall. The Weather Network App still won't work for me but I am glad you got all your apps to work. I guess I should mention I'm still running the Release Preview, not the final release.

    Perhaps this is why, I installed the final versions get from microsoft during the purchase.


    You perform a clean installation, it may well work.

    It looks to be a problem with all versions. There are several threads with the same or similar problem after upgrading to the final release. I won't be buying the current upgrade version offered for 40$. I don't plan on switching from Windows 7 to Windows 8 on any of my current PC's. When the Release Preview times out I'll just go back to Windows 7 on this PC. I boot up into Windows 7 more than I do 8 anyway. I'll probably go Windows 8 on my next build.
