Removing Internet Explorer 11
light bar

If you restore a Windows 95 Registry created before you installed IE4, your system will probably not boot. Or if you don't want to use IE4 anymore, run the ieremove.exe file to safely remove IE4 follow these instructions:
CD  First, open an elevated CMD console (Run as administrator)
cd  Then, you can run the following command FORFILES /P %WINDIR%servicingPackages /M Microsoft-Windows-InternetExplorer-*11.*.mum /c "cmd /c echo Uninstalling package @fname && start /w pkgmgr /up:@fname /norestart". You can copy from "FORFILES" until after /norestart" into your elevated command prompt. You may or may not have some pop up windows saying access denied; just click OK and let it continue until the command prompt is returned.

cd    Then restart the computer.

cd    Download filename IE11-Windows6.1-x64-en-us.exe from Microsoft website; then right-click on the file; then go to Properties and click the unblock button, then OK. Right-click the file again and run as administrator and see if it will install properly. Restart now when prompted. The icon will not automatically appear in the taskbar, but you should see it from the Start Menu -> All Programs list. You can either right-click and pin to taskbar or after you run it you can right-click on the taskbar and 'pin to taskbar' from there. This works on Windows 7.
