IE11 Hangs on First Run... CPU utilization @ 25% .. Every time

HI friends this is for a windows 7 Home Premium x64 system [HP/CPQ Elite, i3 etc ]
I've been chasing down and fixing several Windows 7 issues with this system.
One that remains is this: on a fresh system boot, Every time IE11 is invoked for the first time, it fails, hanging [zombie] and sending CPU Utilization up to around 25% where it will remain until I manually kill the IE process using Task Manager. Chrome works fine.

The fail on IE11 leaves no tracks in the Windows System Event logs - neither the System section nor the Application section, so far as I have seen.

Once killed and restarted, IE11 looks fairly normal.

Any clues as to how to remedy this short of a full reinstall of windows?

Not sure if it will help or not but go to Internet options from your control panel,
Advanced section and Check the top box Use software rendering instead of gpu rendering,
Apply and Okay.
Shut down the machine,
Open and see if the issue remains.
