Windows 7: IE10 not Resetting

IE10 not Resetting

I can't get IE10 to reset at all, I have tried everything to get it to work, like uninstalling my Anti-Virus software, after the reset I restarted my computer it came back up and when I clicked on IE it came up to MSN, like a reset would normally do and when I go to yahoo I find out I am still signed in and then I go to facebook to find that I am still signed in on there to, is there any way for me to fix this to make sure I am signed out and yes I did make sure to check delete personal settings before the reset, any help would be appreciated thanks

Open IE> Tools> Internet Options> General tab> Under Browser History, Settings button> Temporary internet files> View files button

Make note of any cookies cookie:(User name) for instance

Now reset (a reset is not necessary to just delete cookies normally. Open IE> Ctrl+Shift+Delete> Put a check next to cookies and website data> Delete button)

See if the cookies remain. It sounds like your IE is resetting, but not deleting cookies as it should.

Settings that are deleted (Delete personal settings is selected)

Time Is Always Off; I Have To Keep Resetting It
One of the strangest problems I have is that the time is off, generally by +4 hours. Even after reset.
