Covenant Eyes prevents access to Windows Store

I recently updated to a newer version of Windows, I had not tried the Windows Store on the last version, but on the current one, the Windows Store is blocked, and reports that it has no internet connection. Even more disappointing, the "Bash on Ubuntu on Windows" feature demoed at Microsoft BUILD has no access either -- preventing git, ssh and other valuable tools from failing

EDIT: This appears to impact Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer as well. Perhaps they have moved to a newer (lower?) subsystem for OS core internet application access

Hello singmajesty,

Best regards,
