Long story short, my restore point before the update was deleted, so I am now stuck with this extremely buggy software. Is there any way to "downgrade" to Windows 8 without a restore/recovery point? Will a clean-install work? Or is my product key now a key for Windows 8.1 instead of 8?

Is it the key off the machine, is it should be fine as it is tied to the machine.  You can down load an ISO file from Microsoft then use that key.
