Windows 7: For Those That Want To Block IE 10

For Those That Want To Block IE 10

I found this great website which instructs you how to block IE 10. I had it installed and then my screen started to go black and then BSOD's. My games would not play. What you need to do is to remove the following Updates that were pushed the last Patch Tuesday. Now this is applicable to Windows 7SP1 and Windows Server 2008R2 SP1 . I have had no problems since I did this. The Updates are:

KB2670838
KB2729094
KB2731771
KB2533623
KB2786081

After you perform go to this website and follow the directions:

Download Toolkit to Disable Automatic Delivery of Internet Explorer 10 from Official Microsoft Download Center


This may help someone. I do not believe that IE 10 is ready for Windows 7.

Even easier would be to use this tookit from M$ to block the automatic update.

Even more easier and not installing software is Windows Update - Hide or Restore Hidden Updates

There is always an easier method but the one I posted will not even let you download it from MS. Hidden updates also keep re appealing for me.

That's not very appealing at all

Hiding an update prevents WU from offering the same update again. Newer versions or updates to Silverlight and Bing Bar are reoffered, but they are not the same (I have 5 Sliverlight and 2 Bing Bars hidden - I'll never install them)

If you hide an update and it reappears, then there's something else going on on your system. MS offers many things reusing the same KB# (defender KB915597) is one example - it's always definition updates. It might only appear to be appealing (sorry, couldn't resist)

I agree with Jerry - use native software whenever possible.

I have the same things hidden, the use of a 3rd party tool is quite irrelevant to the OP. The toolkit that I posted is directly from MS. You cannot block IE 10 without it. It blocks IE from even being downloaded. This is not a 3rd party tool. Since it seems that no one has even clicked on the link the contents are below:

The Internet Explorer 10 Blocker Toolkit enables users to disable automatic delivery of Internet Explorer 10 as an important class update via Automatic Updates (AU) feature of Windows Update (WU).
Quick details
Version: 6.0.2800.1168 Date published: 1/30/2013

Overview

To help our customers become more secure and up-to-date, Microsoft will distribute Windows Internet Explorer 10 as an important update through Automatic Updates for Windows 7 SP1 and higher for x64 and x86 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 and higher for x64.
This Blocker Toolkit is made available to those who would like to block automatic delivery of Internet Explorer 10 to machines in environments where Automatic Updates is enabled. The Blocker Toolkit will not expire.

Note:

For computers running Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2, the Blocker Toolkit prevents the machine from receiving Internet Explorer 10 via Automatic Updates on the Windows Update and Microsoft Update sites.
The Blocker Toolkit will not prevent users from manually installing Internet Explorer 10 from the Microsoft Download Center, or from external media.
Organizations do not need to deploy the Blocker Toolkit in environments managed with an update management solution such as Windows Server Update Services or Systems Management Server 2003. Organizations can use those products to fully manage deployment of updates released through Windows Update and Microsoft Update, including Internet Explorer 10, within their environment.
Even if you used the Blocker Toolkit to block Internet Explorer 8 or Internet Explorer 9 from being installed as a high-priority or important update, you will still need to use the Internet Explorer 10 version of the Blocker Toolkit to block Internet Explorer 10 from being installed. There are different registry keys used to block or unblock automatic delivery of Internet Explorer 8, Internet Explorer 9 and Internet Explorer 10.


See the "Additional Information" section below for detailed instructions on configuring and deploying the Blocker Toolkit. The same information is also provided in the Help file included in the download.

Ok, got it, thanks - a MS solution that's specific to IE10 automatic updates (previous versions were specific to IE8 & IE9)

Funny thing though, I'm on IE9 and I'm not getting IE10 offered. Perhaps it's becasue I hid the pre-req download and without that, IE10 isn't offered. We'll see. I think IE10 is currently an optional update, but will become an important update later. I'll watch for it.

You're right, my bad - didn't click. Please accept my apologies.

MS is releasing it slowly, first to those that used the IE 10 Preview. It will take about 2 weeks to get to everyone. With the release of Win 8 , I guess they don't want to crash their servers.
