Windows 7: IE 11 Not downloading, even after reset

IE 11 Not downloading, even after reset

IE 11 has quit allowing me to download anything. By some miracle (or technical way that I am just to ignorant to understand), I was able to download Chrome and I can download anything from it that way just fine. On IE 11, for example, if I try to save an attached picture or file from an e-mail to my computer, IE says that it can not download the file. I have tried to install a different antivirus, it won't install that either. I tried several different files of all different types and it begins the process but then says it couldn't install it. I did reset it and turned off all add-ons to no avail. I ran malware bytes and it found a few unknown items that I quarantined and then deleted. Other than the inability to download, my PC isn't doing anything else strange.
