Question Cant get new wireless card to work

Hello i have recently bought myself a ASUS PCE-AC66 Wireless adapter.
Asus PCE-AC66 Dual Band 5GHz Wireless - AC1750 PCI-E Adapter [90IG0030-BM0G00].
So i installed it in my computer fine. All the L.E.D's are lighting up, no physical damage to the card. So i cant see the problem being the actual card. But after i installed all the software that came with the CD. When the utility opens up it only shows a portion of the utility and the rest isn't being displayed. So i cant actually press on anything. It looks like a centimeter all around the window isnt being displayed. The is no maximize or minimize or size adjustments so i cant change anything. I have been on ASUS's site and downloaded updated software and drivers and still the same problem persists.
As i am running windows 8 so i cant go into the setting and manually create a network profile associated to the ASUS Network Card. Any Ideas anyone ??
Thank you

Doesn't sound like you have Win8 Drivers perhaps? Try running the software in compatibility mode?
