If you recently installed the latest version it wouldn't work for me either, just a blank window, so re-installing it might not make any difference. I re-installed it three times and then gave up.

To uninstall it, go to the usual place:

Control Panel > Programs & Features

Click "View installed updates"

Scroll down to "Windows Internet Explorer 11"

Right-click it and choose "Uninstall".

When it's uninstalled you will automatically have your previous version back. I advise you to leave it there. If you want to keep up with the latest features, use a different browser like Google Chrome, it updates itself automatically you don't even notice it.

In order to get Windows Updates you will need to have some version of IE installed. Either that or get an addon that does this - there is one for Firefox, not sure about Chrome.

Since Internet Explorer is tightly integrated with Windows, it doesn't really surprise that you cannot uninstall Internet Explorer. They could at least have made that functionality, but then ppl would be using it to actually get rid of it, which is blasphemy in the world of MicroSoft. Suppose our users could actually choose a browser ! Imagine that ...

OK, They CAN choose, but only as an additional browser. And the we start the nag-function called : do you want to make this browser your primay browser ? (yes/no)

Hi there.

This is your second anti-MS/IE response today. I assume you are not therefore using MS products and that your spec needs revising. If you have written better software yourself please provide a link so that we can all benefit from whatever you offer.
