Help - IE11 doesn't work

  chelseafan22 18:47 25 Apr 2014

I recently bought a new Win 8.1 PC. After a couple of days the icons for IE changed to a magnifying glass and is now called "Search". On opening it a totally empty browser window appears but when I type a URL nothing happens at all.

The IE tile in Metro seems to have disappeared as well.

I have tried turning it off and then on again in Uninstaller to no avail.

I ran sfc_/SCANNOW in a Command window but no problems were reported.

Has anyone experienced this problem?

I would be grateful for any advice on reactivating IE11.

Also check programs and features, turn windows features on or off and check the box is ticked for Internet Explorer 11. Click ok.
