    Creator's Update allowed me to uninstall IE11 and I did, but now I am sick of all Metro-apps, including Edge, which of course stops working when I mess and uninstall system files, but that is why IE was always there~ Now it is gone and Add/Remove Features does not list it! I just want IE so I can watch Netflix with Full HD 1080p content properly - only Windows 8/10 IE/Store and Windows 10 Edge/IE/Store Apps can do that. Can the latest version of IE11 be downloaded somewhere???

    You should be able to download it as a Feature-on-Demand in Settings App.

    Hey buddy, you broke it, don't get pissed when people try to help you or you can fix this without any help

    Maybe you shouldn't mess about with things you don't know how to fix in future?

    No, I made 3 backups at different stages of tweaking, but getting rid of IE was like the very first thing I did, lol, so all 3 backups have it removed!

    I guess it goes without saying that you should try using a better backup method.

    I sympathize with your dilemma but I'll tell you I'm sick and tired of IE 11, especially with it being at this late point in its development in the Creators Update, and wouldn't worry too much about not being able to get it back if that turns out to be the case. For me it's a very frustrating client for browsing, always stalling and making browsing a challenge, at best--it should work much better considering how long it's been worked on by Microsoft. If I were you I'd move on to much better platforms, such as Firefox, Chrome, Pale Moon or Opera. Even Edge, especially the Creators Update iteration, seems a lot better to me.

    Yes, thank you, but apparently they both rely on something I "tweaked" because both show identical errors when I try to play Netflix. It doesn't matter anymore, I restored a backed up image of when everything was working and now tweaking service by service, setting by setting, just to figure out what causes the problem and why many Store apps close upon launch. The SisInternal DebugViewer keeps repeating it has something to do with NPSmDesktopPrrovider.dll, on which there is practically NO information (if you Google it)...

    I use IE11 as a backup browser. Sadly web devs are kinda lazy/incompetent and some websites can't handle Pale Moon. IE always works!

    Cyberfox is the best, although Edge is significantly faster!

    because IE11 still works fine with most of the know websites and also it use less system resources.

    As much as I hate Chrome, nothing works better for online video.
