    Hello primeval,

    While it's recommended to update to 8.1 and install the rest of your Windows Updates afterwards, the tutorial below can help show you how to stop the Store from offering Windows 8.1.

    I would listen to Brink, myself, and about everyone else on this forum, updating to 8.1 is the wise choice.

    I would update to Windows 8.1. I believe Microsoft will be ending updates for users still running Windows 8. I would strongly suggest you go ahead with the update.
