Do another Check for Updates, just in case there's any new ones to come...
Then try installing IE11 rather than IE10 - sometimes that works.

Going from IE 9 to IE 11 went fine. Had a group of new Windows updates and IE 11 security updates after the install and they went fine. Everything seems to be working. Thanks.
