Hi I'm new here and I just installed Windows 8 x64 on my laptop, anyway I wanted to know if there's a way to use Kaspersky Pure on this system because I don't really trust in Windows Defender nor any free antivirus. Thanks for the help!

You should just install it like normal. Ensure that it supports the launching at Boot functionality so that it can start before Malware, the Windows Defender (MSE) product does.
