I was having a problem with Internet Explorer 11 crashing constantly. I downloaded the current build and proceeded to uninstall IE11.  BIG mistake.

Literally everything on my computer changed. Display Font's were different, icon size changed, icon arrangement was scrambled. The fonts that are native to Outlook and other Office programs were changed.

I have tried all different resolutions, different icon sizes (personalize>display), ClearType on and off, system restore to before the uninstall and everything else I can think of. 

Has anyone else seen this problem?  I am almost glad it happened to me and not a client because I am at my wits end.

This link to MS may point you in the right direction :-




I know it says 'install', but it also gives a link to uninstalling it. As I understand it, uninstalling one version of IE is not a completely straightforward matter and remnants of one version can corrupt another.
