I use the windows 8 firewall and I wanted it more secure, so I block incoming and outgoing connection. Unfortunately I realized that the windows store did not work as well and all application from the store to. Then I checked the list of application from where I can add exception and I can not find anything that could be linked to the windows store (WSService) could anyone help me create fast and simple exceptions for their proper functioning. thank you
