IE 11 will not open. I’m on Windows 10 and have been trouble free since upgrading from Windows 7 some months ago.
I had been using IE 11 without any problems and then had about an hour and a half break. I returned to the PC to find that the programme (IE11)would not open at all.
First, I rebooted, no change. Then I tried resetting IE to its default state, no change again. However, the instructions for doing this state “click Close and then OK” but on clicking “Close” the whole thing disappears and there is no option to click “OK”. Is this relevant?
Then I went to System Restore. Something must have happened towards the end of last session I had because I found a System Restore point just before I finished the session. Anyhow, I tried three different System Restore points, including that last one, but all of them failed to restore the system due to error 0X80070005. So, no further forward.
Then I tried Troubleshooting in the Control Panel but again no joy.
I do have Microsoft Edge which works perfectly well and, as far as I know, everything else on my PC is working too.
Where can I go from here? All comments gratefully received.
