    Hi tethgirl, welcome to the forums, if you have any third party security/anti virus program installed, uninstall it, I believe you have burnt a DVD, if not, burn a DVD by going to the email sent by Store when you purchased Wind 8, click the link and download, select the option to create Media, burn a DVD and do a Refresh (second option) with this Tutorial.
    Refresh Windows 8
