I hope this makes sense to someone, because I keep getting sent in different directions! 

I have a problem. I have an HP Pavilion laptop, dv7-7121nr which I recently upgraded to windows 8.1 from windows 7 thinking that would solve my problem. I am pretty sure this is a network thing, I am on wifi, and work from home using a vpn. There are other computers and users in the house though,  and I believe that one of them is allowing a server through. Now I am in completely foreign territory as I don't know anything about servers or terminals or coding or any of that. But I know that I have found files and registry entries, software, hardware issues that just aren't right. I should have an HD graphics card and instead I am running a generic php monitor. The drivers are available but when I try to download, they wont install. My recovery partition is missing, how is that possible? Did it walk away? I have several URL's that are blocked, if I try to download a new browser, for instance, google chrome, it has search block files and won't update to new version. Also my network configurations have all changed and I have talked to service and they just tell me the router is working when they try to reach it. Even as I am typing this, it keeps highlighting my screen, like someone is copying and pasting. I swear, im not crazy! Lol just confused! Since I am now working from home on my computer daily, I need some security.

If anyone can help, I would appreciate it! Even if you just tell me I'm psychotic, but my computer is fine, that would be great! I can follow directions pretty well so if you need something to see what Im talking about, please let me know!

Thank you in advance!
