The file found by the system appears to still be the wrong version - it's one from IE9, rather than IE10.

This probably means that the files were actually place wrongly - let's do a couple of quick checks...

Open an Elevated Command Prompt, and run the following commands...

DIR C:\d15aa
DIR C:\Windows\Winsxs\d15aa

Post the results.


Here are some instructions to make life easier
1) To open an Elevated Command Prompt Window (the ECP window), click on Start, All Programs, Accessories – then right-click on Command Prompt, and select Run as Administrator. Accept the UAC prompt.
2) To run the commands easier, highlight the block of commands, and right-click on the highlight – select Copy. In the CP Window, click on the black/white icon at top left – select Paste. The commands will run but may not complete the last command, so hit the Enter Key once.
3) To copy the results... click on the Black/White icon in the top left, and select Edit... 'Select All', and hit the Enter key - then use Ctrl+V or r-click+Paste to paste it into your response.

Hi NoelDP, thanks a lot for your patience on this, I pasted the results below. As a note, when I followed your startup repair commands, there was no d15aa subfolder created in the \windows\winsxs folder, rather the contents of the d15aa folder (which themselves were grouped in a folder called x86_microsoft-windows-ie-ratings_31bf3856ad364e3
5_10.2.9200.16521_none_e94d3c6514d16754) were copied into the winsxs folder. Based on the file sizes, it seems like the right files got copied. Did I make a mistake here?

Finally, I should also note that when I had previously tried to turn off the internet explorer feature from the windows feature list, for some strange reason it is listed as ie11 instead of ie10, which is what I get when I check 'about internet explorer' when running the browser (which has been since reactivated). Not sure if that is at all relevant. I had previously tried updating ie10 to ie11, but ran into similar troubles with this whole failure to configure updates + reverting changes business.

Nope, it looks like you did everything right - I think that Windows is confused!

Lets see if there's a symlink or something pointing where it didn'orta...

Open an Elevated Command Prompt, and run the following commands..


DIR C:\Windows /AL /S

- if it comes back anything other than 'File not found' please post the results.

If it comes back as expected, then download NTFS Links View from here - NTFSLinksView - View NTFS symbolic links and junction points

extract it and set it to scan C:\Windows at Infinite depth

If it comes back with anything - save a report, and post it.

This looks to me to be the residuals of a malware attack, or the results of using an automated 'fix' tool from an incompetent company.
There is no way that these links should be present - and I have no idea what the effect of removing them would be.

My immediate thought is to do a reformat/reinstall, as there's a possibility that the machine is highly compromised.

Second thought is to do a repair install.
