    Try turning off the Smart Screen Filter.
    Other than that, I don't know.

    ok so i got it to work here is what i did and i have it working in both modern interface and desktop version of IE go to desktop version of IE and open internet options and then click advanced tab and at the bottom click restore internet explorer defaults. then exit IE and go back to gmail.com and if it was like mine all should be normal looking. If not then maybe something might be wrong with your IE and i'm not sure how you reinstall that browser.

    Sorry if this is stating the obvious, have you checked for updates

    There was an update for IE11 recently which fixed the compatibility issues (or for me it did)

    Dear TonyB,
    At least right now gmail seems to be working again, I can't figure out what messed it up in the first place..thanks so much for your suggestion ! For that matter..thanks to EVERYONE for trying to help me !!
    David

    P.S. Just for the heck of it..I tried logging back into my gmail account after I enabled one of the addons I normally use ( LastPass ), I was still able to login, but the entire page wasn't displayed.

    Hello All,
    Just a quick update concerning my issue, I seem to be able to view my gmail in the modern/metro mode, but in the desktop mode, it still hangs. I guess for now..I'll just use google chrome.

    Hello All,
    I'm updating my post to keep other user's informed..just in case they care! This morning I performed a search concerning 'repairing/re-installing' IE 11, it seems there isn't anyway to repair it, but on a site it suggested you can disable it. I clicked on the search function in the upper right hand corner of the page, I typed in windows features, one of the choices was 'turn windows features on or off', so I clicked on it..and I deselected internet explorer 11. The system then disabled IE 11, then I went back to the same area, and re-enabled it. When I first started up IE 11, I was presented with what option's to use for the browser, such as recommended ones..such as smart screen, compatibility, etc., I chose no . Right now while using the start screen version I can now login correctly to gmail, but then when I switch to the 'desktop' version, and try and login to gmail, it still 'hangs' like it did previously. Maybe I should have left IE 11 in the disabled state ??

    Hi,
    I guess nobody else in here is having this issue now, so I won't be adding more comment's to my post unless something changes. As I've stated previously..prior to upgrading to windows 8.1 pro, I wasn't having this issue.
    Thanks,
    David
