  • Hi naveen,

    Please know that we don’t need to remove IE 8 before installing IE11, we can just upgrade it.

    As we know, If users agree to receive automatic upgrades to Internet Explorer, the latest version of the browser for OS will be installed by Windows Update when it's available. So, we needn’t to install IE 11 manually.

    On the other hand, in fact, Internet Explorer is a Windows feature, user can't uninstall it, we could just turn it off.

    In your scenario, I suggest to upgrade IE 11 from Microsoft official website, please check this link below.

    Hope my suggestion can be helpful.
