The main problem with NOT using IE as your browser is that automatic Windows updates may not take place, hence your Microsoft updates may not get done when you need them, possilby causing lapses in program efficientcies and cause problems with programs running.

Internet explore 11 is to be use if you need it else no problem

Posted on May 12, 2014

Testimonial: "I reinstalled IE 11, Google Chrome made my computer go bunkers. First thing I visit sites that are linked up to media player, IE 11. Did this automatically. I tried a plug-in from Google Chrome, totally screwed up my registry and DLL files, the only way out of this mess was a clean OS installation, also CHOME does not support Norton safe search, I'm sold on IE. 11, I hope other people will read this and not have the problems I had. I have a OS disk so I'm okay, I feel sorry for those people that have a store-bought computer and this happens, it could cost them money to fix. So I am writing this to maybe save somebody from all these problems. And thank you for your advice."

Yes in older version of windows internet explorer was built-in windows. However in most newer version i.e. xp and later, you can uninstall internet explorer. As for problems occurring after uninstalling there is none I can recall of. Just think of a browser as a TV, regardless of the maker as long a you have can you can watch TV. Please give feedback. I hope this will help you.

I have recently had internet explorer 11 installed I need to reset it


Don't try to reset a program. There are nor reset buttons for programs. If you have trouble with a program like IE 11 , try to reinstall it, Or just put in your Windows DVD restart the computer and say you want to install windows. Windows sees there is already a version on the computer and will ask you to install windows, or to repair the existing version. Chose the last one, repair.

Other programs, you could reinstall and then reinstall from scratch, But IE is one of the programs you can't uninstall.
Never try to delete programs in windows, because you could delete the main program, but lots of extra files and links, can stay active, missing the main program. But also the registry, will have unused entries, that can't find the programs they are pointing to.
So in Windows, if you don't want to use a program, uninstall is the only way to get it from your computer.

I want to know on how to uninstall IE8 on my computer i am running a windows XP service pack 3. I just want to install a fresh copy of IE8 . . . . .


Hi josephc_agni,

You cannot uninstall Internet Explorer 8 if it is set as not removable. This occurs if you install Internet Explorer 8 before you install Service Pack 3 (SP3) for Windows XP. If this scenario applies to you, then you must uninstall SP3 before you can uninstall Internet Explorer 8.

To uninstall Internet Explorer 8, follow these steps:
  1. Close all programs.
  2. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
  3. Click Add or Remove Programs.
  4. In the list of currently installed programs, click Windows Internet Explorer 8, and then click Remove.

    NOTE: If Windows Internet Explorer 8 does not appear in the list of installed updates, try the alternative step given below.
  5. Follow the instructions to uninstall Internet Explorer 8.
  6. When the uninstall program is finished, restart your computer.
ALTERNATIVE STEP:

To uninstall Internet Explorer 8, follow these steps:
  1. Carefully select and then copy the following command: %windir%\ie8\spuninst\spuninst.exe
  2. Click Start, and then click Run.
  3. In the Open box, type Cmd.exe, and then press ENTER.
  4. Right-click inside the Cmd.exe window, and then click Paste to paste the command that you copied in step 1.
  5. Press ENTER to uninstall Internet Explorer 8.
  6. When the uninstall program is finished, restart your computer.

Internet explorer will not stay on. Dies immediately. Every other aspect of computer works fine. Any idea?


I don't know which version of Windows you are running, but it sounds as if you may have a corrupted IE file. You should try uninstalling Internet Explorer and re installing a new fresh copy. You can uninstall it by going to the control panel and accessing the add remove software option and then select Internet Explorer. Then you will need to get a new copy of Internet explorer to download. You can get this by accessing the Microsoft website. (you may need to use another computer or browser to get online and then save it to a thumb drive or a cd.) Good Luck

Ever since upgrading to Internet Explorer 8, I find that I cannot print emails, open up many attachments, and retrieve other information. For example, if I click on a link, I get the following message:...


Ther are known conflicts with Vista and IE8 - particularly with Vista 64-bit.

I would suggest uninstalling IE8 and reinstalling IE7 or using an alternative browser such as "slimbrowser" (excellent program) or similar.

IE8 can be uninstall by using Add or Remove Programs module in Windows XP, but in Windows Vista, Windows Internet Explorer 8 is not considered to be a ‘program’. Instead, IE8 is categorizing as an ‘update’. Thus, users will not be able to find Windows Internet Explorer 8 in “Programs and Features” of Windows Vista.

To uninstall Internet Explorer 8, go to Control Panel, and click on Uninstall Programs link or Programs and Features icon. Then on Tasks pane on the left, click on View installed updates link. Locate and select Windows Internet Explorer 8 in the list of installed updates, and then click on Uninstall button. Click on Yes when asked that are you sure want to uninstall the update.

If there is no option of IE8 been found on “Programs and Features” or “Add or Remove Programs” dialog box, or uninstallation of Internet Explorer 8 is unclean (causing error message such as setup cannot continue because a more recent version of Internet Explorer has been detected on this computer when trying to downgrade to IE7), try to manually run the spuninst.exe.
To do so, go to C:\WINDOWS\ie8\spuninst\ folder (your drive letter may be different), and run spuninst.exe.

Restart the computer after uninstallation completed.

Hope that helps :)

O.S.


You can't uninstall Explorer, per se. Windows Explorer and Internet Explorer actually use the same base executable files, and Windows will not run without these files. However, if you are having problems with it, you can do a reinstall/repair of Internet Explorer in XP. There is a Microsoft knowledge base article explaining how to do this here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/318378/EN-US/ If your Internet Explorer is fine, and you wish to uninstall Windows Explorer, well, that's just not possible, short of reinstalling Windows completely. If this knowledge base article isn't what you need, can you explain why you need to uninstall Windows Explorer? Possibly we can find another solution.
