  • Hi,

    Sorry that is not possible....

    contact the website from where you downloaded the program... it sounds like their website has been programmed incorrectly and does not recognise IE10...

    when asking a question it is helpful if you can provide any links to websites you are having problems with so we can visit the site and investigate the issue.

  • Hi,


    As far as I know, we cannot uninstall Internet Explorer 10. However, we can turn off the Internet Explorer 10 feature via Programs and Features.


    Hope this helps.

  • I need this step to run a Programm.

    What does that mean?   Is the other program being run under IE?  Then you should try using Compatibility View or a User-Agent spoof via the Developer Tools.  Is the other program looking (somehow) at the default browser and not happy to see that it's a version of  iexplore.exe?  Then you could try changing the default browser.   Is the other program looking at the default browser and expecting to see an IE User-Agent string other than IE10's?  Then perhaps you could use ProcMon to find out what it is looking at and temporarily modify that appropriately?  Otherwise you will need to find a solution involving virtualization.  Apparently, the only MS solution in W8 is now Hyper-V, if your hardware supports that; otherwise you could install Oracle's VirtualBox (or some other third-party VM Host), then install W7 in it, then use the IE8 in that W7 VM (assuming that the presence of IE8 will be sufficient for "to run a Programm."; otherwise go lower, e.g. install XP and get IE6.  Etc.)

     
    Good luck
