    need to know what i should download on empty comp

    Hi, We had recently went and bought and installed windows 8.1, however I had to restore computer like it was new to put it on here and now my question is what do I need on here so it will operate normally? We cant watch videos, look at pics normal, pop ups come up, cant get on a lot of sites that we could before, etc. My old one was Vista and it had all kinds of programs and worked just fine for everything, now I only have a couple things in programs ugh, I'm so confused, please HELP!!! I have adobe reader and Java s far lol
