IE will not open - getting following error message

Hi all, it's been quite a while since I have posted here. I wonder if anyone could suggest a fix for the following occurance. I am trying to open Internet Explorer (the latest v11 I guess) on my Win7 64bit system. I use Firefox as default and Chrome as a second choice but have just noticed that IE will not open at all, whether using a shortcut or going into the IE folder directly & clicking on the app directly).

I get the following error message.....

the procedure entry point shell32.SetCurrentProcessExplicitAppUserModelID could not be located in the dynamic link library api-ms-win-downlevel-shell32-l1-1-0.dll

I wonder if anyone has some ideas?
My system is otherwise completely error free and has been for a long time.

Any reply greatly appreciated
Thanks

Use No Add-ons mode/ Click the Start button and type in the search box,
Internet explorer
Click on the No Add-ons suggestion,

Itís located at, Start/ All programs/ Accessories folder/ System tools folder/ No add-ons.
Use Safe mode with networking to see if Internet explorer still crashes,

Thanks for reply, still get same error message when trying the above 'no addons' option, I regularly clean and minimize start up items using ccleaner, my system boots pretty quick.
