  1. Internet Explorer 11 Icon Unremovable


    As stated in the title, I have a internet explorer 11 icon my desktop that can't be removed, I've also tried uninstalling internet explorer 11 entirely however the icon remains but is unusable.

    I've tried using Antivirus TotalAV to scan my computer but it didnt seem to show any results I was hoping if anybody could provide me with some assistance in removing this icon which appeared out of nowhere suddenly on my desktop.
