I been using google drive for a long time at work, home, mobil etc; I now switch from windows 7 to windows 8.1 and when I try to open google drive, I get "google drive can't connect to the internet, check your internet connection". This is what I tried already:

Disabled Windows Firewall
Disable Virus protection (Symantec Endpoint)
Disable Spyware protection (Spyhunter)
Re-installed Google Drives

Any ideas?

Thanks

According to this, you installed an old version of Google Drive: https://productforums.google.com/forum/#!topic/drive/8anx5G8mj48%5B1-25%5D
Did you install the latest version?

I’m sorry I did a mistake on the description of the problem; in this computer I use System Mechanic for virus protection and not Symantec End Point, is just that we use Endpoint at work.
In any case I had try google drive with both mechanic and windows firewall disabled and still get the same result.
Can you login to secure websites( HTTPS: (i.e. Yahoo Mail, GMail, online banking, etc. ))?

Another thing that I noticed is that even though I have a fast internet connection is taking more than the usual time to connect to different sites in the internet, I'm not sure if this  is related.
I don't see any folks complaining about System Mechanic Pro (and it better be Pro or you have no antivirus!?); but, I do see a lot of hits on a redirect virus.
To test, do Start, type CMD in the search box, and do CTRL-SHIFT-ENTER to open an elevated CMD window.  In it, type TELNET GOOGLE.COM 443<enter>.  What response do you get?
