Is anyone having trouble with Windows 8 or 8.1---hell, I am!

Before my crazy jack Russell destroyed mu computer, I was happily working with it using Windows 7. When I received my new (Samsung) computer, it had Windows 8 on it and then the issues began. They got even worse when I installed the 8.1 version that was offered free. It cut out all the time and I had problem after problem until it crapped out completely. I rang the people who had fixed me up re the insurance part of the deal and they reinstalled the Windows 8 version and fixed, they hoped a few other issues. Once gain, things went haywire and it was only rather a huge effort on the part of my very smart nephew, Tim, that things returned to some sort of normally. We stopped using Internet Explorer as my browser and tired Firefox. Even then I still had problems and we then used Google Chrome. That worked better and now the only real issue (apart from the reuter disengaging from time to time) is that the damn clock will not stay set with the correct time. Buggered if I know  what to do. I feel like ringing my insurance company and saying---take this stupid computer back and give me a cheaper one that works or is it that the real problem is with Windows 8?!
In your 'helpful replies, please do not get too technical, cause I won't understand a bloody word. I shall just convey your polite suggestions to my nephew and possibly to the computer company that has tried to be so helpful. Go and download ROSKILL on your Kindle before you reply. Get it from my website. Hopefully all of you will get a new Kindle for Xmas.
