How I "fixed" getting error: timeout when D/L the patch in Windows 8

Its fairly simple, Here goes: restart in SafeMode. To do this, hit WIN(the windows logo key)-R, then type in msconfig. In msconfig, switch to the boot tab and select the safemode box. I also had to select the network sub-circle so that I had internet access. Hit apply, then restart your computer. Simply run PoE again, and it will finish downloading. (or at least it did for me). When finished, hit WIN-R again, use msconfig again, and unselect the safemode box. Then restart your computer and enjoy PoE (hopefully)

good luck
