yes I did check firewall and stuff.. I (tried to )installed pt4 on a brand new windows 8. There was nothing there from my old installs.. it was all formatted for the new install of win 8. So should be no old regs lines or crap. I had yet to install any secondary programs into win 8.. First things I installed was poker stars, my tweet deck and the poker tracker.
so no office , no apps, no Skype nothing.
