    IE11 in Windows 8.1 suddenly stopped working

    My Internet Explorer version 11 on my Windows 8.1 laptop ASUS G74S computer will not open. There are no error messages... it just will not open. This problem appeared suddenly and unexpectedly and for no apparent reason. I went into Control panel, Programs and Features, Turn Windows features on or off. I turned the feature off for Internet Explorer 11 by unchecking the check box. I restarted my Windows 8.1 computer then I reversed the above steps to turn the feature back on and restarted the computer. The problem persists and Internet Explorer 11 will still not open. Meanwhile I installed Firefox to use it temporarily until I can get Internet Explorer 11 working again.
    Has anybody experienced this same problem, and what was your solution?
    Regards, Kurt

    Have you checked the application & system event logs for errors?

    Have you tried running IE without add-ons or resetting it to defaults to see if it will open ?

    Open IE11 > Tools > Internet Options > Advanced

    Lower right look for Reset button. One of the first things I do for symptoms like yours.
