Version number?: Tap or click the Tools  button (or tap or click Help in the Menu bar), and then tap or click About Internet Explorer.

Safe mode: Get into safe mode (presing F8) with networking and run IE.

Have you turned on protection mode?  Turn it off (Tools ->  Internet Options -> Security tab -> Uncheck the Enable Protected Mode checkbox. Restart IE).

What happens if you right click on a blank spot of the webpage you want to add to Favorites and then click "Add to Favorites..."?

Perhaps the Favorites folder has gotten misplaced.  It should be at  C:\Users\Username\Favorites
Navigate to the C:\Users\Username\Favorites folder. Right click on the folder, then click Properties. Can you access the Location tab? If so click the Restore Default button.
Reboot.

If no success, download the installation file for IE .
