If you have the same setup as the OP, then IE11 is the only version of IE available for your OS (also, IE11 is the only version of IE for Windows 8.1).
Now if you're browsing with Spartan (recently renamed "Microsoft Edge"), then ABP for IE does not work there; shortly after the stable release of Windows 10, Edge should get Chrome-style extension support, and it should be a minor effort for Eyeo to port ABP for Chrome to work in Edge.
With that said, try uninstalling ABP for IE (make sure IE is closed first; check the Task Manager and kill all instances of iexplore.exe), then deleting the contents of %userprofile%\AppData\LocalLow\Adblock Plus for IE\
, then re-installing ABP for IE.
There's a buzzin' in my brain I really can't explain; I think about it before they make me go to bed.
