Internet Explorer 11 - Most options dimmed/grayed out

I have a Windows 8 HP Laptop with Internet Explorer 11. IE 11 will open but only displays a blank pages and does not respond to most any commands. Most options under tools are dimmed/grayed out. The only ones that are not are File, Safety & Compatibility View Settings.
I can run iexplore.exe -extoff and it seems to run fine. So, I disabled all addons and tried to run it again from the desktop shortcut and from the panels and it still wouldn't work. I have run malwarebytes and have found a few bugs and removed them but still can't get it to work.
Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated!

Go to Control Panel, Internet Options. Do these work?  Go to Advanced, and then click on Reset to reset IE and take it back to out-of-the-box condition. That may help.

I have IE11 running on Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bit and it functions decently.

You can turn it off and reboot and then turn it back on again.

Removing IE 11 from the features didn't work. The Internet Options under Control Panel worked and allowed me to reset IE. Thanks for all the input folks!!!
