I rarely give up on a case, that is why I have "hung" in here. However, we are about to reach the end of the line. {in terms of fixes for IE, which I still don't think is broken}.

I thought your Windows was on the C drive. What is on drive F: ? If that is an external drive, please disconnect all external drives.

Now, first, temporarily turn off your antivirus program.

Please run the Windows' System File Checker utility:

  • Start >> type in cmd >> press the Ctrl+Shift+Enter keyboard combination and cmd.exe will be launched as if you selected Run as Administrator. You will then see a User Account Control prompt asking if you would like to allow the Command Prompt to be able to make changes on your computer. Click on the Yes button and you will now be at the Elevated Command Prompt.
  • Type into the command=prompt window
    sfc /scannow

    Then tap Enter

You should see on-screen status messages similar to these:

..Beginning the system scan. This process will take some time.

..Beginning verification phase of system scan.

..Verification % complete.

Once the scan has completed you will receive an onscreen message resembling one of the following:

..found no integrity violations

..found corruption but repaired it

..found corruption that it could not repair

Please advise on the result.

Re-enable your antivirus program.

It said it found something and was repaired it but the problem continues. This morning, I could even hear talking coming out of the speakers and IE wasn't even running. Suddenly it stopped. Then about 30 minutes later it started again. Went on for about 10 minutes and then stopped again. This is the craziest thing I've ever seen. At this point I'm throwing in the towel and reimaging the system. Thanks for trying...

Wiping and fresh install of Windows is the safest thing to do. Wish you the best.
