Bit of a weird one this. About 3 weeks ago IE stop loading; the process flashes up in Task Manager but then disappears. I removed the app, rebooted, re-installed, rebooted but the same symptoms were exhibited. There's only 1 page I use IE for which is my work Lotus Notes, which now apparently works in FF so IE isn't essential, but it bugs me when things don't work.
Today I've tried to open Excel and Word on the same machine, and have the same symptom; process appears in Task Manager but then disappears. I've run a repair, no dice. So I removed Office 2013 and installed Office 2010 which works fine... I then removed Office 2010 and put 2013 back on, and I'm back to where I was; Word, Excel etc.. won't load.
