3. If I upgrade, will it keep all my current programs installed, and just essentially replace my OS without doing like a reformat?
1. If you use the Windows8 Upgrade Advisor, you can create an reinstall-USB Device or an DVD Image.

2. You still can install/use 3rd party security programs.

3. You only can do an full upgrade with all your data and programs when you use Windows 7 Home Premium.
All other Versions of 7 (Professional, Ultimate) or Vista/XP you only can keep personal data, no programs or settings.

Upgrade to Windows 8 - Microsoft Windows
