    Hi, I have a weird problem using the internet on a Acer Aspire V11 touch.

    It is Windows 8.1 and from the start Screen I have "Google Search" app installed. I can Surf the web from this with no problems whatsoever.....but

    when I go into the "Desktop" app it brings me to the desktop and use any search engine, it will load up fine, when I type in the google search bar it shows me the auto correct spellings, popular searches and will bring up a list when I search. But when I try to load any webpage it just keeps loading and then gets an "Error Timed out" message.

    I tried updating windows and its all up to date, the wifi drivers and there all up to date.

    Cant figure it out why it works on one part of the system and not the other.
