Just had a brand new Lenovo when IE 11 got installed couldn't install the user applications on the system. Errors in event log when trying to install the app or remove the Symantec trial av for the app tech support pointed at the iertutil.dll being corrupt.  Only way to resolve issue was to do a factory restore, immediately turned off windows updates and installed everything and blocked IE 11 installation.
