I can't delete internet explorer - "need permission from trustedinstaller"

    Question

  • Hello, i need to delete IE 10.0 so that I can downgrade back to version 9. There is a very important website I need access to that doesn't yet recognize IE 10 as a supported browser. I need to get in today to finalize a proposal for a large client....

    IE 10 has decided that itself is more important that me actually being able to do what I want on MY computer. I am denied permission when I try to delete the Internet Explorer folders in win explorer. there is no uninstall option. IE 10 does not show up int he add or remove programs section of control panel. I already made myself the owner of the Internet Explorer folder and gave myself full control. When I hit delete now I get a bunch of access denied messages because I am still being overridden by something Microsoft has set up on my machine.

    With the inability to delete IE 10 I am pretty sure it qualifies as Malware. Please help me uninstall this browser.

    According to your description, you want to rollback the IE to IE 9.

    If so, you don't need delete the internet explorer.

    I would like to suggest you perform the following steps to uninstall the IE 10:

    1.Click Control Panel>>Programs>>Programs and Features.

    2.On Programs and Features, and at left side click “view  installed updates".

    3.Check the Microsoft windows list, you’ll see internet explorer 10.

    4.Uninstall and your computer will revert back to IE9.
