If you are not used to the new layout of windows 8 and are more comfortable with the old style windows then this free tool will reset it

This is using Start8, however, the free classic shell is just as good
For security I recommend the following :
If you regularly use USB sticks for transferring data from one computer to another then get MCShield
This will protect you from any USB malware, it is set and forget. Once installed it does its job quietly and unobtrusively
For Avast set the hardened mode to aggressive then this will warn about any unusual/unknown programmes that try to run
You will be given the option to run the programme and set it as a normal one or block it from running totally
For protection against all current cryptolock type malware then use Cryptoprevent, again a fire and forget programme
CryptoPrevent install this programme to lock down and prevent crypto ransome ware
Finally use MBAM for a monthly quick scan of the system, the free version is sufficient.
Very little needs to be done with Windows 8.1 use the built in defragmenter and it will also optimise file placement for you, using a third party defragmenter may not give as good a result
Any further questions then just ask
