    I'll try that next.

    I did upgrade. I just got an SSD installed and got everything configured when I found that I had a Win 8 license through the MS Academic program. So I didn't want to reconfigure absolutely everything custom I had, but in hindsight, that would have been the better option. Maybe after I decide to completely transition, I'll wipe it clean and start anew.

    In my readings, I saw that point as well. I checked the firewall and it was all enabled. I checked the white/black listed items and I have no blocked items.


    Thanks for the replies all, we'll see what a refresh does.
