Windows 7: IE 11 Default Search Provider Resets After Sysprep

I don't want to just hide all of the Internet Explorer security updates that are included with that cumulative update each month. As of right now, if I wanted to build an image, I would have to hide 3 months worth of IE 11 updates just to get my default search provider to stick when new user accounts are created. The problem is the 1 update that is breaking it is included with all the other security updates and I don't know how to just single it out.

Also, that setting about not replacing search providers only works after the account is created. The problem is that when the account is created, it auto defaults to Bing because of that update. I'm trying to make it as seamless and easy as possible for users to sign onto a new PC instead of them signing on then having to make a bunch of setting changes.

You'd single out Updates by uninstalling or restoring before last batch when problem occurs then install them singly to narrow down to problem Update. Uninstall it or Restore and then Hide it.

Then capture an image so you have the OS completely patched to that point.

The question is if the update will be wrapped into future ones, or remain standalone and hidden.

I know which update it is. It's KB2988414. The problem is that it's included in this update, KB2976627 (and its been included in every IE 11 cumulative security update since then). I can't find a way to just remove the problem update, KB2988414. If I search for it under installed updates it doesn't pull up. Is there a way to just single out that update, instead of the packaged update it was included in?

(I don't know if I'm making sense any more lol)

Yes, you are making sense. Uninstalling / disabling / hiding the culprit update is useless because it is included in each cumulative security update since then. Creating an image without the culprit update and all security updates since then only works until user updates IE, making it useless, too.

I have played with this a bit and can confirm your findings. I am toying with an idea of including a run-once script in image, which when image is deployed and a new user signs in first time executes the script changing the default provider to Google.

Still in pen and paper flowchart phase, totally unsure if doable.

Thanks for your reply trumping. I've been swamped the last couple of weeks and haven't had a chance to look into this any further. I'm going to build up a new image with this update and try sysprepping it and see what happens. Thanks again for your info, I'll update this with my results.

WOW how ironic that you were working on this same issue at almost the same time I was in MDL. Google Default Search Scope I basically gave up after I couldn't figure it out but now I ran across your thread and it gives me some hope again!!! Did anyone ever figure this out and get it to work? I am testing this again and can assist if there are any ideas and a direction that I can go in. THANKS
