    Uninstalling and reinstalling IE


    by sunshine360 ·

    Is there a way to uninstall and reinstall Internet Explorer?

    I am now having problems with IE on 2 computers. One computer won’t populate pop-up or smaller windows that I select, the frames come up, but all I get is an hourglass and an empty window.

    My other computer won’t get Windows updates now. I can get to the page, but when I try and download updates, it will sit here all day if I let it without retrieving or installing the updates.

    I have tried emptying my cache, I have tried changing the security settings, I have tried patching both computers, I have tried everything I can think of to fix this with no luck. The only thing that I haven’t tried is to uninstall it since it can’t be completely uninstalled through add/remove programs.

    Does anyone have any information on problems like this?

    Thanks in advance.

      Run sfc to get back to the base and do your patches. This should put you back in business.

        Repairing IE

        Go to Add/Remove Programs, highlight Internet Explorer and click “Add/Remove.” This will bring up an option “Repair Internet Explorer.”
        I do not understand your statement that you cannot fully uninstall IE, as I have successfully done so on many occasions. This facility normally only fails to work if you have already manually deleted some component.
