    Stop The Upgrade To 8.1 Invitation

    I really dislike Microsoft sometimes... and this is one of those times. I did the upgrade to 8.1. After the install my Avast! Antivirus was turned off... I tried to turn it on, and got a message "It was not compatible with 8.1" !! Well, THANKS MICROSOFT for the update about Avast! AFTER THE FACT !!! Thank Goodness I have Macrium Reflect. I quickly got my Win 8.0 back.

    My question is I keep getting the blue bar with the Windows 8.1 Upgrade Invitation. Not only do I not want it, I don't want it jammed down my throat. If I ever do want it, Microsoft, I know where to go !!!!!!! How can I turn that insulting garbage invite to 8.1 off ?? Thanks for letting me vent !!! Hopefully someone will have an answer for me... Nite All !!!
