It's not Win8, my laptop came with it, and I have little to no problems playing. Maybe some of your drivers are incorrect, or corrupted? Or the install of STO isd bad, and needs to be wiped & redone from scratch?
Without more info, on exactly HOW it's failing, there's little I could offer in the way of troubleshooting tips or tricks.

No problems here with 8.1 beta. What issues are you experiencing?

it lags.
especially in ESTFs.

I don't know why, I got a i7 3770, Ati Radeon 3670 2gb, 8gb ram ...
it is really a good pc, i don't know why it lags that way.

Standard 5 man STF's? You shouldna be experiencing any stutters to your gameplay, due to system specs. Mine doesn't, unless I'm flying through warp plasma. And I'm only running a 1.8GHz dual-core AMD, with a Radeon 7400 APU, and 4 GB of RAM. But I've noticed certain graphics settings will impact way more than others. Another thing I did to reduce a lot issues, is disable "on-demand patching". Wouldna think that would solve lagging (ie stutters due to system demands), but it greatly smoothed that out.
Now, if you're experiencing true lag, ie, data stream interruptions from their server, to your PC, check your connections, make sure you're getting adequate upload & download speeds, as well as latency. Are you running other bandwith intensive programs in the background? If so, stop using them, or throttle them down for the duration of your gameplay. Sometimes, if you're on a router (wireless or wired), power-cycling the router can improve your cionnection throughput drastically.
Hope one or more of these bits of advice help solve your "lagging", or stuttering.

mmm no, the problem is not resolved yet.
maybe its the GPU that is not too good.

I have to change it, maybe this can solve the problem.

I first loaded STO and didn't have any issues, then once I left the start-up areas my computer went to major lag centeral. I can log into the game, but not play, my friends logged in and I could see him, but he couldn't see me. I hope that tells someone something.

I used 8 and am now at 8.1. Check the video setting under troubleshooting. Sometimes settings get messed up.

I have the same problem with windows 7. For me, its the game graphics. There's simply way too much going on, and my computer can't keep up. I find that setting to minimum graphics, then bringing each individual setting up to a certain point can help, but in a fight I pretty much need to keep everything down to the minimum, and I lag even then if there's explosions or warp plasma. If you're pretty computer savvy, you could try overclocking. I can't do it with mine, everythings locked. Need to get mine upgraded or get a new one.
