Windows 7: Need help re-installing IExplorer

Need help re-installing IExplorer

I had IE11 running, but it causes problem with BF4 and Winamp.

So I uninstalled it through the programs turn windows features on/off. As recommended.

I then installed IE10. But it doesn't show up anywhere and I cannot find it on disk.
If I try to install IE10 again, a message appears stating it is already installed.

Any ideas to fix this would be appreciated!

Check location of executable

Do you find the following files?

C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe

C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe

If you don't see these files try downloading the standalone installer mentioned and linked to in this tutorial:

Internet Explorer 10 - Enable 32-bit or 64-bit IE10 in Windows 7

As far as I know the following methods are the correct way to remove IE11:

Internet Explorer 11 - Uninstall in Windows 7

So try going back to "turn windows features on or off" and undo the changes that you made followed by a reboot.

If you uninstall IE11 then windows updates will attempt to reinstall it so you'll need to disable the update!
