    Antivirus for 8.1 ??


    Can someone recommend an a/v that is compatible with 8.1? Normally I'd use MSE, but it's not compatible with 8.1. Avast is the same!

    Nice, I didn't realize it myself until I recently tried the eval version. Enjoy it, I will be back on once I get my PSU back from RMA!
