If a suggestion did not appear to click on ?
Click Start/ Control panel/ Uninstall a program or Programs and features/ On the top left click on turn windows features on or off.
This list is empty ?

Try a SFC in safe mode X.

I would suggest looking in the registry but I don't know how comfortable you are with that.

Well I would check in regedit see my pics I am running 9 through necessity so the number s if there match up then it is still there.

But please do not touch anything until you see what you have got!!

If you don't know how to get to the register - Start > type regedit and click on the blue (when hovered on) box that will appear in the Start menu box. But please do not do anything until you let us know what is there.

HERE IS THE PICTURE YOU WANTED TO SEE:



ok thats what i was asking in other theard i will retell it and i will show you pictures

uninstalling internet explorer with windows registry is safe?

Hellow i tryed all the steps to uninstall IE9 and i cant uninstall it, i think its corrupted and i dont have windows 7 CD to make a restore startup, when i try to restore system the point of any update of IE9 is not there, i intalled IE9 2 years ago i think thats why it doesnt appear as a system restore point.

i think the only solution is to detele IE9 from Windows Registry. to do this i downloadedRegistrar Registry Manager, it helped me to fix the windows feature when it was blank, if someone needs help or have you windows feature in blank just let me know (i tryed like 4 method and none work, but it worked for me).

Well, i was wondering if i delete IE9 from Windows Registry could be safe and if i am going to be avaliable to install it again or any version of IE , i want to make sure if it could help my problem with IE9 corrupted,(I want to install IE10)

Some screenshots:



is the location right?



is it safe? please answer.

Now before you do anything I would Google the IE9 and IE10 download and save them to downloads first - I keep my downloads in a desktop folder called Downloads.
Start > type downloads right click on that highlighted blue box > send to desktop.

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-au/internet-explorer/ie-9-worldwide-languages

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-au/internet-explorer/ie-10-worldwide-languages

These are the refs for here in Australia you will probably get the site from wherever you are.

Now do not use anything but the Windows system of pulling up the regedit that is
Start > type regedit - it will show the highlighted box see my pic the quality isn't good as you cannot snip it.
It sounds as if you have a few of add on apps to make the machine go better or improve the performance I would urge you to look at some of those and if they do things with the registry like cleaning it and defragging it they need getting rid of as most cause more problems than they are worth. The only exception is the CCleaner app from piriform.

If I were doing this I would then go to regedit and open to the HKEY_USER_MACHINE > Microsoft > Software > Internet Explorer don't open it right click on the whole ref and then delete. It will ask you if you want to delete this entry and all its sub entries.

Go to Downloads and run the IE10 - if that is what you are after and run / install it or you could try that through updates.

If that does not install then you still have the IE9 in the Downloads to do the same with.

AS I have said this is what I would do but the choice is yours as the outcome could be that you have to do a complete reinstall of the OS if things are a bit messed up.

Ok now it looks as if the IE is opened up - did it do that by itself or did you click on the main entry triangle of IE? see my pic again here. If it does this again try deleting that Active X Compatibility entry first using the same process.
