    You dont have to, but remember that 8.1 is beta software, so if I were you, I would stay with Defender, and uninstall Kaspersky. Your speed issue is more than likely having both running at the same time.

    Windows Defender automatically becomes disabled when it detects another anti-virus software.

    There is no "best" anti-virus program. It all depends on what you want, free versus paid software (no difference in protection level). Can you tell us more about your "speed" issue? What is exactly happening?
