Apps Not Connecting to Internet RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, I seem to have a problem with my computers apps not connecting to the internet.  I have tried to go on Windows Store and it can not connect, it says, "This might have happened because of a server problem or the network connection timed out. Please wait a few minutes and try again. 0X80072f8f.". Nextflix opens and shows the last shows seen, but when it loads a show/movie it seems to go to 20% and comes back saying that it could not connect due to server problem or network connection timed out.  The game apps load up fine, but any part of the app associated with the net, just says "downloading" where the internet information would be, (ie. game stats).  I have the internet running smoothly in the computer, but just the apps are not connecting to the net.  I am running 8.1.  Is there somewhere I can go to say which apps I want to have access to the net? Or just somewhere to get them to connect to the net?

    Thanks,

    T.
