IE11 on Windows 8.1
I have a laptop that has problems opening IE11 from the Desktop.
The IE Apps works from the Windows 8 start when however the Desktop IE doesn't even load.
I have tried to reinstall IE from the Windows Features with no luck

Maybe system restore?
Othwerwise use chrome or firefox until there are IE11 updates done which fix any such issues?

Delete the icon on your desktop and recreate it.
Your help has saved me hundreds of hours of internet surfing.
Right-click the IE icon on the Start screen and you should have the option "pin to taskbar" - do this and try running it from the desktop taskbar icon, if this works you can drag a shortcut from this onto the desktop if required (though personally I like to keep it on the taskbar).
I will give all these solutions a go tomorrow, i have the laptop onsite then, thanks
