The free student version of antivirus software Kaspersky Internet Security 2013 that is listed on your Ozone page is not compatible with Windows 8.

In Windows 8, Windows Defender replaces Microsoft Security Essentials. Windows Defender runs in the background and notifies you when you need to take specific action. However, you can use it anytime to scan for malware if your computer isn’t working properly or you clicked a suspicious link online or in an email message.
