downgrade from IE 9 to IE 8 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    So apparently IE 9 is a mandatory security update, however I need to downgrade to to IE 8 and keep it downgraded.

    I can browse to the Windows Updates and I can click to uninstall the IE 9, and then it will ask me to restart. When it comes back up, I will have IE 8 installed. However, the Windows Updater will also be telling me that I have a security update and will start the 15min timer for a restart. After this restart I will be back up to IE 9 again.

    How do I keep IE at version 8? (I can always go back up to IE 9, but I need IE 8 for right now)

    I am using Windows 7 Pro with the Windows Intune software.

    thank you

  • 1. I did the same with in-place upgrade.

    2. Do not allow automatic update.
