I need to do a re-install of my Internet Explorer, where can I get/DL a good copy?

Should I just buy a new one? It came pre-installed on my computer.

Running Windows 7.

I'm doing this because Adware has partially high-jacked my browser, and constantly inturrupts my web-surfing with ads, demands to update IE (I don't need to), and 'comparing' any pic on the website with simlair products.

Update:

And yes, my firewalls and antivirus isn't able to get rid of them.

Update 2:

I have disabled any add-ons I didn't recnogize and know the function of. I usually run with minimal add-ons anyway. No Google toolbar, no chrome, no nothing but some PDF and Javascript add-ons.

Update 3:

@larrybud2004 - I meant shell out the money for a clean copy of IE. Not get an entirely new computer :).

    1) IE is free but reinstall IE won't solve your problem.

    2) Either Chrome or Firefox with security plug-ins will be many times safer than IE (like WOT, Adblock Plus, Bluhell Firewall, NoScript etc).

    3) Scan your computer with SUPERAntiSpyware & Malwarebytes and remove anything they found.

    I suggest switching to another browser, but if you still want Internet Explorer, download http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/internet-explor... and run it.

    If that doesn't work, try disabling your addons using this guide ->

    Download cleaner software such as AdAware or SpyBot to clean your computer. Then Disable Add-Ons from Internet Explorer by going to the TOOLS menu, and click Manage Ad-ons.

    There certainly is no reason to reinstall IE or buy a new computer.
