Hi, so I don't know anything at all about computers/software. However today I downloaded a the old version of MS Paint and with it came some obnoxious virus thing called AVG Safeguard and FoodBuzz. I believe I've gotten rid of FoodBuzz but I couldn't get rid of AVG Safeguard and it was making my computer crash and run slow. I went into "Search Programs and Files" and looked for AVG, but nothing came up. Not knowing what to do I decided to delete Internet Explorer in the hope that AVG would get deleted along with it because at this point IE wouldn't even open up without freezing and crashing immediately. (Yeah, I realize I should've used the "uninstall" but I couldn't find it.) Afterwards, I went on chrome and tried to reinstall.. or install you could say, IE 10. However right when I attempt to it says something along the lines of, "Installation failed, newer version of Internet Explorer already detected on computer." BUT THERE IS NO INTERNET EXPLORER! I don't know what to do and I really need whatever help you can give. I'd like to reiterate that if you can give me any directions on what to do, you're going to have to walk me through it like you would a child.
P.S. I have Windows 7
EDIT: I'm sorry, I was unclear and forgot to mention that I had I had deleted IE 9 then tried to install IE 10, in case that makes a difference. Also, I just tried to install IE 9 now and it said that I already had it installed on my computer :S
