@AW0903, I see that you're having an issue downloading files from IE 10. This could be an issue with the protected mode that doesn't bring much if it so protected that it harms usability. In that case people will simple disable it starts working albeit unprotected.
Follow these steps:
Select Security and uncheck Enable Protected Mode
Close and start IE10.
Let me know if this resolves the issue.

I would suggest uninstalling IE10, then reinstalling it. Here is a document which shows you how to uninstall the program. Once you uninstall IE, restart the notebook. After you restart the notebook IE10 should reinstall by itself.
Let me know the outcome to that.
