Windows 8.1 Internet properties reset tab missing - tmy - 12-20-2015

Hi everyone,
this may seem on the surface an easy issue, however it is more strange.

when I go to Internet properties to restore advanced settings the 'Reset Internet Explorer settings tab below is not shown so I can't 'Reset Internet Explorer to their default condition'

Something has broken this deliberately to defend itself

Has anyone got a fix can't go to group policies as it is not the correct version of windows 8.1

many thanks in advance

tmy

is my problem the 'Reset browser tab' is missing :-) if I had that tab it would be sorted but that is my problem the tab is missing so something has removed it

thank you again

Hi Compton,
not sure if you meant to link to 'Mac rumours'

How does one uninstall Internet Explorer in Windows 8.1 ? I assume this what your suggesting as a fix ?

Thank you Compton
