Thought id download freemake video converter,installed under custom install unticked everything and it still managed to install "bytefence antimalware" and "chromium"

After uninstalling all the rubbish my browser IE11 isn't working properly,all my favourite tabs have gone and the tabs option for favourite sites isn't working

Can anyone help please
