    IE11 Uninstall?


    My sister has a laptop on 8.1 and IE11. IE11 is refusing to let her do any surfing or emails, but Chrome is fine. So it must be IE11.

    I went 'down the lines' to try and remove IE11 and to re-install a new version to no avail. It wont uninstall and it wont lket me delete folder.

    Her computer knowledge is minimal.

    IE 11 is part of Windows 8.1 but it can be turned off.
    See this tutorial.

    yes, I did that but could not fix an internal IE problem. My sister rang me 10 mins ago to say 'it has suddenly started working again'

    damn MS!
