8.1 give you start button, which boot you straight up to, guess what, Metro.
I'm avoiding Metro as much as I can but sometimes I have to go inside it to do something that MS in its infinite wisdom put it there. Playing cat and mouse is not something I expect to do on a new OS, you can keep it.
Oh and keep up the haters gonna hate mantra, you're doing good to its sale.
Yeah, viva Windows 8 and Windows 8.1
Now more seriously, in February I downloaded the Windows 8 Upgrade (from Windows 7) for $15.
(I had bought my Windows 7 Toshiba Satellite in November 2012 and therefore I paid for the Upgrade only $15.)
In turn Toshiba - and Dell and HP as well - were offering $15-rebates for the Upgrade for buyers of new computers.
I got my $15 from Toshiba in the form of a prepaid Visa Card.
So my Upgrade to Windows 8 (from Windows 7) is free.
I want to try two things:
1. Using my recovery discs - which I made myself - I want to restore my Toshiba Satellite Windows 7 to the original state as it was shipped to me in late Novemebr 2012.
My Toshiba Satellite came with the the Norton software (30-day trial) pre-installed.
In January I did un-install Norton and threw it away.
(I'll will safe all my music files, etc. on a portable 500 GB HD and also - to be on a safe side - on my USB flash drives.)
2. After a couple of weeks I want to finally clean-install the Windows 8 Upgrade.
I've got a question regarding my Kaspersky 2013 Internet Security software installed
which is also compatible with Windows 8.
I've got the license for using Kaspersky software until January 2014.
What will happen? Will the Kaspersky Labs detect that I will have reinstalled Windows 7
and prompt me for downloading Kaspersky 2013 again?
How about the Windows 8 Upgrade?
Should I save my Kaspersky 2013 software on my portable 500 GB HD along with my music files, etc. and then reinstall it?
I would appreciate your suggestions and/or any links.
Thanx for reading.
