8.1 Preview Killed Kaspersky RRS feed

  • Question

  • I installed Windows 8.1 Preview and now my Kaspersky Internet Security will not run. Windows enabled Defender, but I've lost all the other functions I paid for with Kaspersky. I really don't like not having my AV, etc. software, and I've NEVER trusted just one AV package to catch everything, incl. Defender. When I installed 8.1 Preview, I followed the instructions to create a USB restore drive on a 64Gb thumb drive. I really want to dump 8.1 Preview. How do I get my system back? I thought I could use Refresh in PC settings, but Refresh informs me I'd loose all my software, incl. my Pre-Installed MS Office, etc. Is there a way to get back to version 8 with the USB thumb drive without wiping my software? If not, what the heck good was it?

    Seriously, if anyone is thinking about installing Preview 8.1, DON'T!!! I had thought the thumb drive MS had me create would get me back if things went wrong. Hopefully, I'm wrong, but at the moment......
