Add-ons in IE

I do rely on WOT & I definitely need Speckie for typing posts but not sure if I really need all of these 'Enabled', I don't honestly understand their meanings. Can someone guide me,please.

When I installed IE10 I checked for add-ons and could not believe my eyes.......There were twelve from Microsoft alone. I had no idea what they were {still don't!} so I just disabled them all . It seems to work just fine without them. I just run the Flash Player and the AV. Good enough I guess.

Yea I'm not sure why you would have two of each,
But I'm not familiar with either of these utilities either/ never used them,
ie10 has it's own spell checker and WOT ?
Never saw the need for a Filtered web utility,
You can Uninstall them and reset Internet explorer,
Then re-install them to see if the double entries return or not ?
Export Favorites to html file before resetting Internet explorer/ just to be safe.

Thanks Thrash. I'm too much of a chicken to go without WOT, have come close a couple times to clicking on a 'search result', then saw the big red icon. Have read too many posts of problems with even getting IE 10 installed, no thanks.
I believe I've seen some posters that do have the 2 programs so will try to find them & send a PM maybe.

You have an x64 version of Seven. There are 2 or each as one is 32 bit and one is 64 bit. One is in Program Files, the other in Program Files (x86). I'd leave them be. A Guy
