Laplink . I've never used it but am wary whether it will move all of your programs across. I would make sure that you have an effective back up of all of your data (documents, photos, music, etc) and find the program discs is you can.

You may well have to enter the code to activate F-Secure and any other programs too.

Jock1e - Windows 8.1 update is available from today and should make life easier. I'm going to try to update my W8.1 laptop later.
