Server 2008 r2 sp1 IE 11 will not uninstall

I am unable to uninstall ie 11 from our server. I have tried the wusa uninstall - I get catastrophic failure. I have tried other command lines but no luck. I tired through control panel - add /remove - view installed updates. But the page comes up blank. I am out of ideas. Any ideas or help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,

Run this command as admin from command prompt (cmd.exe). Make sure you have admin rights.
 
FORFILES /P %WINDIR%\servicing\Packages /M Microsoft-Windows-InternetExplorer-*11.*.mum /c "cmd /c echo Uninstalling package @fname && start /w pkgmgr /up:@fname /quiet /norestart"
This will force to uninstall IE 11 and roll back to IE 10.

Thanks for your help, I ended up finding the issue. The service Windows Modules Installer had been turned off. I re-enabled this then I was able to go to the control panel and view installed updates, removed IE 11, rebooted and it was gone.

Whoo hoo.
