Not intending to rekindle the debate, but I experienced a recent trojan attack by clicking on a search result using WD. My system was infiltrated with over 100 pups/advertisements/browser hijacked.
While I accept responsibility for being aware of suspicious links, many AVs would have...
Have you reset IE ? (InternetOptions/Advanced/Reset) I would choose the first option and then if not successful "Delete Personal Settings" option. IE needs to be restarted after.
If not, disable your tracking protection, extensions, and AV one-by-one to see if that could be the culprit...
Gyazo is a screen capture extension you may have inadvertently downloaded. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gyazo
Try AdW Cleaner for pups and sfc/scannow for damaged files.
- The download has a shield which contains an app ? Or what app are you running ?

Do a scan with Malwarebytes and let us know results. Also, check the Event Viewer. (ControlPanel/System'/Admin Tools/Event Viewer) and Device Manager to insure drivers are updated.
Can the HP Support Asst be uninstalled and reinstalled from the HP Support Site ? May be best.
Seems the OP means that he stays with the original OS on his computer.
Personally, I am not 100% sure I will permanently upgrade and others may feel the same. Depends on personal needs. My determining factor will be improved performance (less resources, etc) and the Edge browser. Do...
My bad. So used to seeing Adobe referred to as Reader and Flash as Flash.
As you may know, Flash is updated through MSN updates. Try to check and see if you have the latest update. There is not a way to remove Flash from IE 8. You may look for ways to disable it.
