I'm just about ready to do this.  I've got a couple more questions I need answered.  First, I've got Quicken 2012. When I ran the Windows 8 Upgrade Assistant it didn't mention anything at all about Quicken. Does anyone know if it will work or not? (I'm going to go to Windows 8 Pro.)

Second question concerns my anti-virus. I'm using Bitdefender Internet Security 2013. I'm assuming that any AV will interfer with an attempt to upgrade to Windows 8, so what steps do I take to prevent that?
