Internet Explorer will not load on Win 7 computer

Internet explorer suddenly ceased to work on my wife's PC. Tried most of the tests and remedies listed in Microsoft website but none worked. uninstalled the programme then installed IE 10. When I tried to run the programme it tries to start then just stops and closes. Any suggestion. (Have installed Google Chrome for now but would prefer IE)

sfc /scannow

in the search box and let windows find and replace missing or corrupt files, this may take awhile, if it doesn't replace anything and IE will not work afterwards, we may have to look at services that may not be running correctly.

Have tried both suggestions. When I type sfc /scannow a dialogue box momentarily appears then disappears. Pressing IE brings up a blank dialogue box which stays open for 15-20 secs and then closes

Have you tried IE without add-ons in All Programs - Accessories?

Cannot find a listing under all programs - Accessories
