What on earth is/are sweet-pages, as this "thing" seems to be playing havoc with my use of windows 8.1, popups every where, heaps of downloads
that I do not want etc.

Google suggests that is a browser hijack Virus, see here http://www.wikihow.com/Get-Rid-of-Sweet-page.com-Virus-from-Web-Browser
I'd suggest someone has clicked on something they shouldn't have on a web page or possibly just visited a dodgy page.

Not something you can blame on windows 8 I'm afraid. Possibly you could blame windows defender for being inadequate but that's another story and no anti virus is perfect.
