its about bloody time i found a solution, i installed a pirated copy of 8 a while back and had this problem. i thought it was because it wasn't activated, then i decided to just by it, but still had the same problem. Thank you!!!rrayit;133614]Finally found a solution for this. here is what was done for anyone else having the same issue: cmd prompt with admin privileges type the following Type route delete, that should work.

If not type netsh int ip reset c:\resetlog.txt followed by netsh winsock reset c:\winsock.txt. Restart your computer, that should work[/QUOTE]
