I would try to do a reset of IE:

Start-> Control Panel-> Internet Options -> Advanced Tab -> "Reset..."

If that doesn't work, try to uninstall IE 11:

Start-> Control Panel-> Programs and Features-> View installed upgrades on the left pane, and select IE 11.

Uninstall, restart, and then run Windows Update to reinstall IE 11.  You may also try downloading any .NET updates that Windows Update is showing.

Check the Microsoft Visual C++ you have. Uninstall it and download the latest from: reinstall it again.
Are you running any third party toolbars (like Google or Yahoo)?  If so uninstall.
