    You can try unticking it in add/remove Windows Features, rebooting, and retick it again:

    I'm still a bit confused because you said nothing happens when you try to open it but then you say you were able to reset all valuse to default. FYI, one other forum member just went through 6 pages of back and forth responses on a similar IE issue and the end result (recommendation) was this:

    How to Do a Repair Install of Windows 8 and 8.1 without Losing Anything

    BTW, Did this just start? Do you have a System Restore point available to try?

    I tried that option a few times to no avail either. I was able to go into internet options on its own and reset the settings once I had IE11 enabled again as shown in your picture. Its weird that that is an option but it is and if it had worked then it would have been good. I tried system restores but they all failed with the same error. I didn't try a repair install because I dont have the media to do it with.

    Sorry about that; however, there was a link within that tells you how to do it without one. It was one of the very first statements to be read:
