I have a curious issue with the windows 8 firewall. When using chrome and internet explorer for hotmail I can't download word or pdf attachments. I also tried to download adobe reader with with exactly the same results, it was blocked. If I switch the firewall off, then downloading works as expected.
I have googled the issue but I'm not finding anything useful.
Does anyone know how I can configure the firewall to stop this blocking? I've added both chrome and internet explorer to the firewalls permitted list on both home and public networks but to no avail.
I imagine any work around for windows 7 would be applicable also, the firewalls seem similar.
Thanks in advanced for your help
