The computer has 2 different types of internet explorers. One is in the desktop area, this is the normal internet explorer browser. Then the 2nd one is the the apps start window, this internet explorer is the new version for easy touch screen use. But when I touch that one it automatically takes me to the desktop and opens that old version.

I have Windows 8 on a TouchSmart20 and when I've had issues with the tiles on the Start Screen, I have uninstalled them, and then instead of re-installing from the App Store on my computer, I go to Microsoft.com and download a fresh version. That has worked for me. So I would suggest you try uninstalling the IE tile from the Start Screen and then downloading a new browser directly from Microsoft.
