    maybe win7 or xp, or Linux will be a better choice for you then

    for the issue ,after creating the new user did you reboot the computer and try IE again ,or try another browser, just download something from your other user and install it the new user .

    Well no wonder your still trying to use window 8, there has been a huge upgrade to 8.1 and then another one to 8.1 update. If you want the looks and feel of 7 or XP try Classic Shell. my user profiles are set up just as they were in win 7 home group is disabled.

    Sounds like a clean Install of 8.1 update should fix you up. Create installation media for Windows 8.1 - Windows Help See the Tutorial for a clean install
