How do you want to open this file? When attempting to run IE 11

  1. Pic related when I try to open IE 11 and only IE 11.
    Run IE
    After I select IE in the "How do you want to open this file?" menu , it brings up the view downloads. After I run the iexplorer.exe, I can use IE 11.
    Also I've ran MBAM, adware cleaner, and windows defender. So I'm pretty sure it's not a virus.
    Also if I open it in chrome, it gives me a download for iexplorer.exe which downloads instantly.
    Unchecking "Use this app for all .exe files" does nothing.
    I tried forcing it into desktop mode which didn't help
    I tried the other modes which didn't help either.

    It's just kinda annoying. Can't find anything on google about it except one small forum with no answers.
    Thanks in advanced.

    I have recently encountered this issue as well, it is really disturbing...
    I have no solution though I suspect the cause could be Citrio Browser, since it hijacked IE.
    Did you install Citrio Browser before?
