There was just something corrupted somewhere, it has ie11 on now. The disc has sp1 installed already.
I just find it really odd how usually ie updates with the updates and for some reason, it never shown up. Its a legitimate key from lenovo, so the non genuine issue wasn't there. Oh well.... yay windows.
The thinkpad is a w510, its not mine, its a customers, but i'd rather them get their computer back knowing everything installed properly and is running smooth rather than trying all these little fixes and only to have them call later on down the road with a bunch of other issues that spawned from things I wasn't able to see.
Thanks though, im sure others will value the prerequisite links.
