    IE 11 will not open but other browsers will

    When I click on the desktop IE 11 icon, it seems to open to the home page and then immediately I get an error pop-up saying " A problem caused this program to stop working correctly."
    I've tried turning IE on and off thru the control panel. I tried to download and install IE from microsoft. I stopped all startup programs. I cannot open IE to reset or change security. I even tried to repair the Windows 8.1 installation. I also have no IE tile to try to open.
    Anyone have a suggestion. (Maybe totally unrelated but I cannot save file versions as backup either)

    You can reset settings through Control panel as well.

    Or you can try to "reinstall it" or use the System File Checker tool to repair it.
