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.


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.
