My wife's friend was using her laptop with Windows 8 installed when a large sign came up on her screen saying "UPDATE TO WINDOWS 8.1 NOW". Not being to sure what to do with a friends help she down loaded Win 8.1. After some problems it appeared to load.

My question is - is this a genuine Microsoft download. If not why would it come up on her screen. She does have some issues in using it now but if it is genuine that may just be the update changes.

It just struck me as an odd way of getting an update installed

The 8.1 Upgrade has been out for well over a year. It is essentially a service pack delivered through the Store. Not surprising that Microsoft would start prodding people to install it.
