You've posted the wrong link. Besides, Windows 8.1 is not officially released yet so that's that. When it will be released, avast! will also be ready for it.

Thank you for getting back to me so soon. Sorry about the link. I've fixed it now.
I realise that Windows 8.1 is not officially released yet, but I just wanted to bring this error to avast!'s attention so they can work on it.

So in the mean time we have to go unprotected and the use of something I have paid for?  Is there A Beta I can use?
