Internet Explorer (9,10,11) Problem

I have a weirdest problem with Internet Explorer on a machine, and I appreciate your help.  Windows Update is trying to upgrade IE to version 11, but has been failing.  Under "Installed Updates", it shows IE 10 was installed, but when I launch IE, and check the version under Help, it shows IE 9, and IE 11 keeps on trying to upgrade and then failed.  I did clean boot and try to force upgrade IE to 11 with no success, and I can't uninstall IE 10 or 9 for that matter.  This is Windows 7 Pro with SP1 (64-bit).  The browser is not working correctly... it only opens the first page, any click afterward will result in "application fails.... and then close".  Please advise.  Thanks.

swgit--
Try installing IE11 in Safe Mode.

You should be able to uninstall earlier versions of IE from Control Pane|Programs and Features|View Installed Updates (top of left panel) scroll to the Microsoft Windows section.  You should find Windows Internet Explorer X (X=depending what is now installed).  Click onit and choose Uninstall.  If it is 10 you may have to do this over for IE 9, but this time you should find IE 9 in View Installed Updates.

However, before you uninstall IE, you may want to install another browser (like Firefox or Chrome) to ensure you have access to the Internet.

jcimarron - thanks.
nobus - agree... however, it's hard to keep them off as they are sneakily included with software updates like those of adobe and java... and got installed when users run those.
