    Hi guys,

    Bought my new Sony Vaio today that of course came with Windows 8. I have completed the setup and installed Norton 360 and Office and tried (unsuccessfully) to uninstall McAfee. Now when i boot up the computer the WI-FI connects (with a full, four bar connection) however, when i try and open IE or the store, I get a connection issue saying there is no internet access.

    I am using the same Wi-fi network to post this on this forum, so it seems the issue must be on the Vaio side, what do you guys suggest?

    Can you connect by ethernet?

    Why can't you uninstall McAfee? Did it get all tangled up with Norton? Tried the McAfee Removal Tool?

    If/when you need to uninstall Norton Symantec has the Norton Removal Tool.
