If you were you able to download using IE 10 until recently, run a System Restore to a date before the problem started.


If you still have the problem,  why not run a Repair Install?

It will not affect your personal data and installed programs

Well, a system repair install (not full install) is the method to try, at this time.  :-(

Do you have any other security software.

Turn off windows firewall and check.

System Repair and In Place Upgrade are not the same thing.
Which was it?

System Repair (suggested by aadih but no info given)
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/create-a-system-repair-disc

which leads to System Recovery Options
http://windows.microsoft.com/is-is/windows/what-are-system-recovery-options#what-are-system-recovery-options=windows-7

In place upgrade (also known as Repair Install) which I suggested.  See http:#a39468234  .
