IE 11 was installed via WSUS update, (possibly a bad idea, but not by mistake), and now Internet Explorer crashes on launch. As described here: http://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/967896
The solution would seem to be to remove IE 11 and then reintall it. However, IE doesn't appear in the server manager GUI for removing features, or in programs and features for removing a program.
I have tried the powershell command "dism /online /disable-feature /featurename:Internet-Expl
this fails at 64.3% with a 0x80004005 error.
I have tried the command: "FORFILES /P %WINDIR%\servicing\Package
s /M Microsoft-Windows-I
nternetExplorer-*11.*.mum /c "cmd /c echo Uninstalling package @fname && start /
w pkgmgr /up:@fname /norestart" This fails with a series of "0x80070005 Access Denied" errors, (yes I am running an admin cmd session).
And last but probably least I have tried "wusa.exe /uninstall /kb:2841134" which fails with a 0x80004005 error.
I'm semi-convinced it's a permissions issue, as I've had many strange problems with 2008R2 and permissions before, but can anyone shed light on this?
