    I have yesterday installed Windows 8 Pro over my Windows 7Pro, and all appears well, apart from web browsing. My computer loads some websites fine, but most give the error 'Error 138 (net::ERR_NETWORK_ACCESS_DENIED): Unable to access the network.'. The behaviour is the same with Chrome 23 and Internet Explorer 10. I have Bullguard 13.0.255 installed, and Windows firewall is disabled, but I see no difference if I disable Bullguard's firewall.

    Any ideas?
