Boy, don’t you dislike how hard it is to find direct download links…
Check: IE6, IE7, IE8, IE9, IE10, IE11 Offline Installers Download Links – kenorb Mar 20 ’15 at 13:39 – http://www.itechtics.com/download-internet-explorer-all-versions/ – note this does not provide hashes.
Try these Microsoft offline installer links:
- Internet Explorer 10 (32-bit Windows) – http://download.microsoft.com/download/8/A/C/8AC7C482-BC74-492E-B978-7ED04900CEDE/IE10-Windows6.1-x86-en-us.exe
- Internet Explorer 10 (64-bit Windows) – http://download.microsoft.com/download/C/E/0/CE0AB8AE-E6B7-43F7-9290-F8EB0EA54FB5/IE10-Windows6.1-x64-en-us.exe
These may refuse to work if you already have IE 11 installed, though. If it is refused, try this: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/20043971/how-to-downgrade-from-internet-explorer-11-to-internet-explorer-10

- 64-bit: f1752bb6517fe15071e5f7a4fee4b8680da1bdad1df7054ab22bab78fe0f46aee177787f60ea2cfc86a2db2b08429e2cba3cfdd20ba6a2ab69e091c7784dfdae
