    IE10 no longer works.


    If I open it, it just closes right away. With no error messages.

    So far I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling with"turn windows features on/off" but that didn't fix.
    This in on windows 8 pro rtm x64

    Hello Chromatica,

    You might see if completely resetting Internet Explorer may be able to help.

    In that case, you could do a system restore using a restore point (if available) dated before this issue started to hopefully fix this.

    if that doesn't help, then refreshing Windows 8 should.

    The weird thing is that metro ie works. Only the desktop version doesn't. I can live without it though since firefox is my default. It's just one of those annoying things I want to be fixed.

    Try restoring your computer to previous settings or just format it. I guess that will do it itself.
    Thank you
