    IE 11 wont open after windows updates


    I am running 8.1. Yesterday I performed windows updates that took ages to download and install. Now I find that IE 11 will not open in desktop mode.

    I have tried running it directly from Programs and have run the Troubleshooter. Also I have disabled and then re-enabled it within Windows Features.

    I can open IE in metro mode but I prefer to use IE in desktop mode.

    I am not too literate with computers, but any suggestions would be appreciated and I will attempt to follow instructions.
