    That's right.  IE is a component of the OS.  The most you can do with it is uncheck it in Windows Features.  One would hope that unchecking and checking it there might have the effect of reinitializing it (since after all a reboot is forced for at least one of those steps).  Sadly this is not the case.  It just hides/unhides  iexplore.exe  and its shortcuts--working as designed.

    Actually there is one possibility that I have not seen anyone say what happens with:  use DISM to remove the feature and make it install on demand.  Surely that would remove the modules and therefore make them reinitialize.  Who knows?

    C:\>dism /online /disable-feature /? | find /i "remove"
    /Disable-Feature /FeatureName:<name_in_image> [/PackageName:<name_in_image>] [/Remove]
      Use /Remove to remove a feature without removing the feature's manifest from the
      image. The feature will be listed as 'Disabled with Payload Removed' when using
            /PackageName:Microsoft.Windows.Calc.Demo~6595b6144ccf1df~x86~en~ /Remove

    You could be first to try this innovative idea.  Tip: since there is a strong possibility that  explorer.exe  might no longer work after doing this (depending on how complete it would be), I would make sure that I had a backup of my OS and knew how to use it.


    Good luck
