Remove IEAK Customisations RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I have used IEAK 11 to install some custom settings for IE11 on one of our RD Servers.  I would now like to remove those customisations and return to the default installation of IE11.

    How would I go about removing the customisations?

    Many thanks

    There is a .dll often mentioned in this regard which gets executed by rundll32.exe but I don't remember the details or whether I have ever seen it formally documented...

    iedkcs32.dll

    It still exists in  %windir%\System32  and there is still a

  • Hi

    Thanks for all your replies, they have set me on a journey which has help to resolve the problem

    Basically I removed IE11 via View Installed Updates in Control Panel.  This then reverted to a default installation of IE10.

    It turns out my problem with IE11 was that it could not view SSL sites.  Rolling back to IE10 resolved this.

    Thanks

  • Hi,

    You could use system restore to roll back to a previous time If you have set a system restore point before you deploy the IEAK configuration.

    If there is no any system restore point, you have to remove them manually one by one.

  • Hi

    Thanks for your reply.  Unfortunately System Restore is not available on Server 2008.

    What do you mean when you say "remove them manually one by one"?

  • Hi,

    Windows Server also could restore to a previous time if you set:

    Manage Backup and Restore in Windows Server Essentials

    If you can't get it, remove them manually one by one. It means change modify the configuration ftom the Internet Explorer UI by check or uncheck some button etc.

    Also you could try to reset the Internet Explorer to default:

    Change or reset Internet Explorer settings
