I have restarted my PC many times and I am administrator of my PC.

Background of the problem:

  • Installed update Windows 10 Version 1709
  • IE 11 would not load after the update, i.e. splash screen would load then the app would crash
  • Unchecked Internet Explorer in "Turn Windows Features on and off", restarted, rechecked IE, restarted.  Same problem occurred.
  • Again, Unchecked Internet Explorer in "Turn Windows Features on and off", restarted
  • Uninstalled IE 11 in "Manage Optional Features", restarted
  • IE 11 now shows in "See Optional feature history"
  • IE 11 is not available to Add when click on "Add a Feature"

I think OS reinstall is probably necessary now but was hoping for an easier solution.
