    Thanks for your help
    I meant to say "Did you Register the Software (Microsoft Windows 8 [although it often works like a puzzle game]).

    All I do is reboot, and Windows 8 asks me every time If I want to update to Windows 8.1

    I give it the middle finger back for wasting my time.

    Why would I update to something that wrecks my DVD set from working to Repair/Refresh my PC (the additional crime Microsoft keep secret about)?

    Turns out the upgrade to Windows 8.1 isn't a single download, but a series of 5 updates. They finally each appeared, and I was able to perform the update and am now running 8.1 again! Thanks for the help - I consider this issue closed.

Will Windows 8.1 be an upgrade, a refresh, on new install?
If its an upgrade, all programs still installed, I'll do it. If its a refresh probably not (yes it keeps the installed apps but that's not any help.) If its a complete reinstall, no way. Anyone know what the plan is?
