    If anything you should bug Kaspersky about 2013 8.1 support. Lots of software developers have the nasty habit of releasing a new version entirely in order to support a new os version instead of fixing the current one. Imho it's a bad practice and in the case of 8.1, that is a service pack in reality, it's even worse.
    But dont't expect ASUS to pay a new OEM license to upgrade Kaspersky. That will not happen.
    This quote from a different post leads me to believe that there will be no Kaspersky Windows 8.1 Support from asus anytime soon if at all.

    And here I thought I was doing something wrong, ha!

    When I got my Formula, I installed the CD in order to have Kaspersky. It just refused to install on Windows 8.1. Thanks for the link, Kronvict, now I can finally stop trying to install it. I'll do just fine with Windows Defender.
