Always be wary of uncharacteristically free software.

Never said they weren't. Microsoft is pushing it like new software though.

Does anyone know what "Winpk Filter is not installed" means? Every time I boot up the computer I see it.

I'd agree with the MS link. Check your manufacturer's site and see if there's any critical updates for 8.1. If it's a custom build you have to go to a few more sites but it's worth it to find out.
