Despite the problems noted above with W8.1, there are still many playing catch-up.
Example: I ditched the Norton Security Suite & didn't want McAfee, so I went with Kaspersly PURE 3.0. Guess what? Couldn't install it because of "compatibility issues". It wasn't compatible with W8.1. Contacted Kaspersky & they are working "feverishly" on a patch for W8.1. In the meantime they've recommended I download a free 30 day trial of Kaspersky Internet Security 2014, which I did. Gotta hand it to them though, they have been in frequent touch (emails) to keep me posted & to answer any questions I may have. When the patch is ready (mid-November?) they'll email me with a new version of Kasperky to download that is W8.1 friendly.
