It might - and shouldn't hurt - there's no significant errors in either CBS or CheckSUR.
Although there are a mass of low-level warnings in the CBS, I'm not sure what they actually mean, so I'm reluctant to chase after them in case they mean even less than I suspect.

So the problem with IE-10 not rolling back is not an update issue? What else could it be, some missing file or something? It is a pity it will not allow a fresh install over the existing one to see if it replaces anything.

Update on the updates situation; they are working fine. Thanks.

The normal 'solution' at this stage is a repair install of the OS
There's obviously something amiss in the current IE install that neither SFC nor CheckSUR is picking up on - which means that it's probably buried somewhere in the registry (which is great, if you have even a vague idea where to look) - but since the registry is something like 100MB of compressed data which is mostly unique to any given machine, it's totally impractical to try and do a compare with another machine and hope to get a meaningful answer.

The good news is that a repair install will put IE8 back in and you can then upgrade to IE9 - you should also keep most of your settings
The bad news is that you then have the chore of re-updating to currency (and the repair may fail catastrophically - very rare, but possible).

I really think we've gone as far as anyone here can take it without either MS assistance, or a repair, but if you want to keep plugging away at it, I'm willing.

I would be reluctant to do that for the following reasons. I have previously done a repair install and on another occasion a full re-install of the OS. On both occasions, the updates were buggy, so I am suspecting that there is an issue with them straight off the CD. It would ruin all your work to get the updates as they are now.

If you think there is anything that can be gained, I am game! Plus, I am learning a bit about seven here, with all due gratitude.

OMG! - another lamb to the slaughter!
I need to catch up on other threads, which means that it'll be Saturday afternoon/evening before I can get back to you. Don't run away (without telling me) in the meantime!
