        k9 is not blocking anything for me on windows 8. I have clicked on the above link, rebooted, tried to specifically disallow youtube, but I can still get on there and see anything. It does not seem to work at all even though it is installed and letting me change settings.

        Doesn't even work on Windows 8 32 bit , instead it stopped my windows working, I was unable to boot after a reboot from installing K9

        K9 protection is great on my XP platform. It does not work at all on Win 8 or 8.1. I have installed and reinstalled to no avail!

        after installing K9 for windows 7 my windows update stopped working, anything I need to do to make Windows update working again?

        I'm using windows 8.1 64bit. Unfortunately K9 doesn't block any sites. I use Mozilla Firefox :-(

        It will install on windows 8 but will not work on windows 8.

        It doesn't seem to work o the Amazon app.

        I caught my nephew searching things that are normally blocked on the browser, but for some reason the Amazon app is exempt. Any ideas?

        I tested the lates Beta version, and although Win8 is supported, it seems there's a hole regarding Metro apps. For example if youtube.com is place on the blacklist - it will prevent anyone from accessing youtube via a webbrowser, however my simply d/l ing a free metro app (e.g. MegaTube) the user has free access to view what they want on youtube.

        Windows 8 on this program K9 web protection works correctly, but still there is still a problem - web browser (Mozilla Firefox) to fires automatically when the connection to the Internet and on a piece of browser page will www.bing.com.

        Please solve this problem in this program in beta.

        Thank you for your attention.

        Thank you SO much for this update. My family and I have been THRILLED with your K9 product since we were first introduced to it many years ago. We appreciate your taking the time to adapt it to the new format of Windows 8 AND for contacting all those who reached out to you when it was ready. You guys are a first-class company that set the standard for professionalism! Keep up the great work.
