Windows 7: IE10 Is Highjacked ??

Microsoft Windows 7 Service Pack 1
IE10 Is Highjacked ??

I have been struggling for the last 3 days trying to make IE10 stable in Win7. I am disabled and I cannot begin to explain how frustrated I am. When I open mamage addons its is a blank window and if I open with no addons there all there. It all started with ad choices which must have been hidden in Adobe IIR. I downloaded webroot and it found that iexplore.exe was corrupt and deleted, I had to use system restore to go back to ft ie10.. Any assistance anyone can provide would be appreciated, I was unable to remove the update for the IE10 install and was unable to install ie 11. I apologize for the confusion in this email, I was a it engineer my self but I am completely beside myself. Please help me. Thank you, Blessings, Rick

You can use these free tools to see if they find anything,
Manually Update them before running full scans,
Try not to use your computer while the scans are running, (one at a time of course).
Uncheck the box to Activate the Free trial from the final install options,
This one is the longest up to 4 hours, the others are only about 45 minutes,

Post the scan results,

What IE10 do I have?
If I go to Help/About in my IE10, it does not say it's a 64-bit version. But its exe file is in Program Files (not x86) and if I run it directly from that exe file, Help says the same thing. So what do I have? 64-bit or 32-bit? (Running in 64-bit W7 Pro) John
