    Windows 8.1 Can't Connect to Internet Please help quickly


    Hi.

    I've just upgraded to Windows 8.1 but I found a problem and I cant find a solution on the internet
    I cannot connect nearly all of the desktop apps to the internet

    Some apps work like Internet Explorer and Skype but the rest fail to connect - even chrome wont connect
    I've played around with the internet settings with no success.
    If I can't find a solution, I would have no choice but to revert back to Windows 8
    Is there a way to fix this or do I have to go back to Windows 8. If this problem cant be solved, how do I go back to Windows 8.

    Thanks

    Hi.
    I've run SFC and came up and this message came up:
    Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations.

    Should I continue and use dism?
