It may actually be your browser!!!
OK, orlbuckeye does have a point. But Java isn't the only one with multiple vulnerabilities -- all your software should be upgraded at reasonable intervals, just to keep up with the (bad)Joneses.
Having said that, IE10 ain't that great in the first place. As well, are you running IE10x64 or x32? Certainly on my W7x64, IE9x64 is severely crippled, and I have no reason to believe Microsoft has done much better with IE10.
These days, everyone should run at least two browsers. I use K-Meleon 1.6.0b2 for first preference, then Opera 12.01, and IE9x32 when all else fails. After seeing the FF and Crome disasters on my offsprings' lappies, I ain't going there. If you're wondering, I see no reason K-Meleon can't run on W8. It's an antique Gecko engine, but well able to keep up speedwise with today's offerings, and it has surprisingly advanced security features.
Back on security: what does your anti-virus tell you? I use Avast!, and pay great attention to the Behaviour, Script and Web Shields, as well as the old-gold File Shield.
So, try another browser, and see if the problem continues.
