command line uninstall IE10 on W7

    General discussion

  • Mighty all,

    I know that IE10, which was installed as an optional update via "windows update" can be removed by listing all of the installed updates, right clicking and picking "uninstall".

    My question is: is there a way to do the same via a command?

    Thanks in advance,

    Alex

    I have used this with success for silent uninstall of IE9 on Win7, so I'm guessing that IE10 would likely be similar..

  • Yes, this seems to work. Here's the command line to uninstall IE10:

    FORFILES /P %WINDIR%\servicing\Packages /M Microsoft-Windows-InternetExplorer-*10.*.mum /c "cmd /c echo Uninstalling package @fname && start /w pkgmgr /up:@fname /quiet /norestart"

    Kudos to Don!

  • Hello , You can try it:

    wusa.exe /uninstall /quiet /norestart /KB:2718695

    As an FYI -- this does not work. wusa.exe comes back with a "This product is not installed" message. Looks like the option detailed by Don works. Re-imaging a computer to make sure it replaces the shell with an IE 9 shell and not just the guts...

    Looks like the script works properly; at least when going back to IE9. Need to test on computers that originally had IE8. In subsequent update scans, IE10 is now in "Option" updates instead of "Important" updates. However, it does re-install as expected.

    Has anyone else tried this yet? I remember IE9 had similar way to uninstall silently.
