We have a VM that we have been prepping to be the base image of our VMware View linked clones. At some point, someone managed to install IE9 on it. We have sites that do not work with IE9, so I uninstalled it per Microsoft's directions. IE9 uninstalled, but I did not get IE8 back. There does not seem to be any way to reinstall it. I've googled around a bit and see that others have run into the same thing, but no solutions. Does anyone know how to fix this? Thank you.

"Turn Windows features on or off"

Is this where you removed IE9?

If not, I would revert to a System Restore point to when it was installed, and remove it via "View Installed Updates" in Programs and Features......

No, I removed IE9 from the Installed Updates page, per Microsoft. Unfortunately, since this image is being prepped for View, it has System Restore disabled.

Go back to  "Turn Windows features on or off"

Is IE8 listed?

If not, you might be looking at a repair install, from the DVD....

Now I would be kinda leary about using a repaired OS as a base image...... If you are in a position that you will not loose alot of work, it might be easier to start over... Might prove more reliable in the future. Cause if you run into a problem down the road from this, you dont have it on just one machine, but on ALL of them....
