Open ie,
Use the F12 key,
Browser mode/ ie10 works the best it might be stuck in Compatibility view.
Document mode/ Standards
After confirming,
Hold Alt and type TB (tools-Compatibility view settings)
Uncheck Download comp-view list from Microsoft automatically/ Close and test,
I've found this comp-view list some what of a burden on ie10,
I've only needed comp-view on rare occasions for video controls..
If all else fails Reset ie,
Internet options/ Advanced section/ reset button/ Check the box to Delete personal settings.

Well I also downgraded to IE8, to see what would happen and I went to Windows website, to try to re-install IE9 and then I kept getting an error message saying it wouldn't install and then tried Windows Update and that said it failed the installation of IE9
