What version of Windows do you have? Not sure uninstalling / re-install wil lfix your problem, but:
In Windows 7 (which is what I have), in Control Panel, open Programs and Features. In the left-hand panel near the top, there is a link to "Turn Windows Features on or off." Simply de-select (clear the check-box) Internet Explorer 11 and the program will un-install (you'll probably have to reboot). To re-install, go through the same steps and select Internet Explorer 11.
Not sure about Windows 8.

Just goto Control Panel > Internet Options to restore the IE settings back to defaults. Which u can do under the Advanced tab.

Then relaunch IE again. If it is just the Search Box at the upper right corner, go to Tools > Manage Addons to change things related to Extension Addons or Search Engines, etc.

Some crap-ware (like MySearch) u may need to run some scans to fully rid the system of those; like with Spybot S&D and Malwarebytes.
