IE 11 on a Windows 10.

Can't get IE 11 to open anything other then a MSN.com site on a Windows 10 upgrade.

I have Firefox and Chrome on the machine working fine, as does Edge.  But IE11 will not open Google.com or anything else.  This is the 10th Win 7 upgrade to 10 I've done and the first time I've had this problem

So far I've reset, cleaned temporary, used compatibility mode for other basic sites and it will not open the other site pages.

All I get is a blank page, no messages.

Try removing IE (disabling it). Go to Control Panel, Programs and Features, Windows Features, wait, and uncheck IE. You will have to restart so restart.

Go back there and ENABLE IE. Once again you have to restart so do.

Now once running go to IE, Tools, Internet Options, Advanced, and do a FULL reset including Personal Info.

See if that works to get IE going. It should.

If you are still having difficulty, run SFC /SCANNOW and restart.
If you continue having difficulty, run DISM

Open cmd.exe with Run as Administrator.
DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-Image /Scanhealth (takes 15 - 20 minutes).  (Verification)
DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-Image /Restorehealth (takes 15 - 20 minutes).   (Fix)
Restart the computer and test.

I have done the Disable and re-Enable with no change. It did require a reboot.

I'm doing the System File Checker now.

Did the Disabling, and the SFC and the DISM suggestions.  And still have the same issue.

No web page on IE 11.  Firefox, Chrome and Edge all work as suppose to.

Any other thoughts?

You are at a point where you may need to consider a full repair (=reinstall) of Windows 10.

Go to the media creation link:

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10 

You can reinstall Windows 10 from here and your licensing should be just fine. Near the beginning of the install there is the following question:

Keep all data and applications   OR
Keep Nothing.

The latter (keep nothing) is essentially a fresh install but then you MUST back up the computer first

One should emphasize that "keep nothing" should not be used if you try to keep what you have. Keep all data and applications should be the way because if that does not work out, we can do "keep nothing" at any time, while the other way round, we can't.

And attention: What the media creation tool downloads used to be build 1511, the latest win10 version. Microsoft however has withdrawn that version for whatever reason. So if you are on 1511 already, the version needed for that repair installation is 1511 and cannot be obtained via the media creation tool at the moment! So first, check what version you are on by using the command winver.

Reinstalled Windows 10 and now IE 11 seem to be working as expected.

I did the "keep nothing" option.  It's a PC with nothing on it, so nothing to lose.  figured that is the best way to set it up for a fresh start.

Thanks for the help.
