"a couple of internet explorers listed" one will be 64bit and one 32bit.

32bit Internet Explorer is the one you should be using as IE 64bit doesn't work so well - a Microsoft known bug and AFAIK not fixed yet.

Once you click Internet Explorer go to tools.Click on smart screen filter then click on turn off.

I have always had it running with no problems.
