Assuming this could be a windows update/patch thats causing this.

We dont believe its the web filtering or add-ins from what we have tested.

Running chrome of course is fine, but not a fix.

Ideas?

Thanks

Try to check if there was any new updates by checking update history.
check if there is any group policy applied in the network related to IEXPLORE.EXE
dll files can be affected by bad updates.

Open Run from [Windows logo key + r] Type in iexplore.exe -extoff (iexplore.exe<space>-extoff) then hit Enter. This will open Internet Explorer in no add-ons mode. Do you still have the problem?

I have IE running on several V1709 machines of my own and clients.  

In addition to the above, try the following:

Open Control Panel, Programs and Features, Windows Features and remove (uncheck) IE. Restart - you must.
Go back and enable (check) IE. Restart again - you must.

Now go to Control Panel, Internet Options, Advanced and Reset. Do the top half. Close out, restart again.

Now test. Does IE open ?

IE opens just crashes with tha tIE11 has terminated/crashed window, then refreshes once the close button clicked. like: https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=ie11+terminated+unexpectedly&safe=strict&rlz=1C1GCEA_enGB771GB771&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiOp5Tuvr7YAhXBalAKHeo6AAgQ_AUIDCgD&biw=1920&bih=974#imgrc=0SA9UsEWDdAhtM:

Try reinstalling and resetting IE as suggested.

On one problem computer, make a new, test Windows User Profile (Account). Log into the new Windows Account and test IE that way.

Two things then:

1. Consider legacy software or out of date / incompatible Anti Virus software.

2. A new version of Windows 10 out just now (16299.192), and you could try this.

Run Edge or Chrome while researching the above

From my previos post:

1. Run in CMD:
DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth
sfc /scannow

2. Another suggestion:
Press Windows + R to open Run.
Type iexplore -extoff to open Internet Explorer in safe mode.
Hit Enter to open Internet Explorer.
If the Internet Explorer successfully launched, reset the Internet Explorer settings.
OR just open Run command, type inetcpl.cpl and press enter to open IE properties window. Click on ‘Advanced’ tab, click on ‘Reset’ button at the bottom to Reset Internet Explorer Settings.

3. Also locate iexplorer.exe and run it directly from C:\... not via shortcut

4. Check if IE is enabled in Windows Features. If not -> enable it.
If yes -> uncheck Internet Explorer 11 in Windows Features, and click on OK.
Afterwards, restart the computer if prompted.
Next, check Internet Explorer 11 in Windows Features, and click on OK.
This will essentially be the same as uninstalling and reinstalling IE11.

5. Perform Repair install -> Troubleshoot -> Advanced Options -> Reset this computer -> Keep my files

There can be a problematic add-in.

You can try this IE repair utility.

Microsoft is having to patch Windows to address issues with Anti Virus and other apps, so that may help.
