    Installed Windows 8.1 now my computer freezes up

    I had Windows 8 and my computer was having problems, it would cut off my internet connection. And it kept on prompting me to upgrade to Windows 8.1 so I did a couple of nights ago. Now my computer freezes up, a website page or a video.

    Does anyone know what I can do about this? Its so frustrating, because not long ago I sent it to the computer shop to have it fixed since my computer is under warranty. It is a new HP computer.

    Why does it keep trying to FORCE me to upgrade to Windows 8.1 all the time. Every time I do, it just makes things worse. It doesn't give you the option to say NO THANKS. It just keeps pestering you to upgrade. WHY?

    I could be wrong but I think you are using IE 11.
