Windows 8 and 10 Apps Not Connecting

This problem is not directly related to X3watch, but rather, the way Windows 8 "metro mode apps" and Windows 10 apps connect and communicate with the internet and how those processes interact with other third party security apps and filters (like X3watch).

We've found communication issues exist with lots of other apps (in Microsoft's support forums). There are a few third party work-arounds that people have come up with. We are providing a link to one of the more popular workarounds below. In addition, our team is planning to research more ways to improve how we function in metro mode.

    I had a Microsoft game that stopped loading correctly (kept getting a "server maintenance" warning when the server wasn't being maintained) and the Microsoft store stopped loading after installing X3watch. But following the link above and running and following the directions for "fiddler 4" worked on my Windows 10 system. That was easy.
