Do you think I can just leave IE as it is and switch to Firefox?
To be honest I think that is the best option at this juncture; since either a actual Repair Install of Windows 7 and or a actual reformat and reinstallation of the Windows Operating System is not viable for your good self.

Once completed, since we have used some more tools again, download and run Delfix per my prior instructions in post #14
