I too am considering this upgrade to SSD. This may seem trivial but try control panel, programs and features, windows features and untick internet explorer then reboot. Upon reboot go and retick the box to reinstall that feature. This has worked for me in the past when ie stopped functioning. Good Luck. Please let us know the results.
