Hello.I uninstalled/removed IE9 (something like remove feature). After restart I could not see IE8  (broken shortcut).  I tried to re-install IE9, but the installer fails every time. Is it possible to solve this problem without restoring the backup?

I cannot reinstall IE9. It fails. This seems to be my exact problem, but I cannot do In-Place Upgrade.

Yes, I restarted windows -> missing ie.

I try with administrative privilege but I do not believe it will help. One would think that if Windows allows you to remove something it should not broke windows. By the way, I am using W7:E.

See if there is a restore point prior to your attempted uninstall of IE 9 and, if so, use System Restore and that restore point.
