Right now IE version is 11

This problem started from Oct 2014. I did do a system restore in when this  problem occurred. IE works but then upon PC  shutdown, windows updates runs after which IE stops working.

I have been using Chrome since then.

When did you run the Windows Updates that seemed to cause the problem?  Manually or from Windows Updates website?
The last two month's batches have had corrupt files.
http://windowsitpro.com/security/kb3008923-gets-fix-internet-explorer-11-issues

If no help run
regsvr32 %ProgramFiles%\Internet Explorer\ieproxy.dll
from a Command Prompt as Admin.

I ran all recommended Microsoft Updates.

I also ran fixes in http://windowsitpro.com/security/kb3008923-gets-fix-internet-explorer-11-issues but because I had already run MS updates the fixes were already installed.

Still my IE11 flashes and closes immediately.

How do I run this command, when my OS is on H Drive and not on C Drive ?
regsvr32 %ProgramFiles%\Internet Explorer\ieproxy.dll

You said "I also ran fixes in http://windowsitpro.com/security/kb3008923-gets-fix-internet-explorer-11-issues but because I had already run MS updates the fixes were already installed."

In the link you quote it says "The new fix is listed as 3025390, but is only to be applied after 3008923 is installed. So, those that uninstalled the original patch will need to install it again, and then grab 3025390 to install."  So if you ran 3025390 after installing 3008923, you should be OK.  

You asked "How do I run this command, when my OS is on H Drive and not on C Drive ?
 regsvr32 %ProgramFiles%\Internet Explorer\ieproxy.dll "
C: Drive is not mentioned.  So if the OS and IE are on the same H: drive, just run the command as suggested.

S T--Try running  
regsvr32 H:\Program Files\\Internet Explorer\ieproxy.dll
from a command prompt as an Admin.

If this does not help, I suggest a Repair Install
http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/3413-repair-install.html
This should not affect your installed programs or personal data, but a backup first is always a good idea.
