My husband and I have recently purchased HP laptop with 8.1 OS. The Start Screen is not our favorite, so we have switched back to the Desktop. Works well for almost everything except the Internet Explorer:
In the Start Screen, when clicking the "E" tile, Exlorer main page shows up OK. When clicking the "E" link in the Desktop Task-bar , an error appears stating that Epxplorer has encounter a problem and the whole thing has to be terminated via the old-fashion, loyal "little x" at the RHS corner.
We DID change the "Internet Options" under the Control Panel\Network & Internet to Desktop options. Did not help.
Any ideas what is the issue and how to fix it?
