Windows 7: Removed IE 11, 10, 9 and now can't find IE installed at all.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit.
Removed IE 11, 10, 9 and now can't find IE installed at all.

Hi, google searching says I can't have removed IE totally from the system but all evidence says I have.

I used an elevated command prompt with the command below to uninstall IE 11, then 10, then 9 in hopes to roll it back to 8 as I have been failing repeatedly with trying to reinstall IE 11. I keep getting error 9C59 failure while I have all the prerequisites, latest graphic drivers and have 37 gig free HD space.

The command used to uninstall:
FORFILES /P %WINDIR%\servicing\Packages /M Microsoft-Windows-InternetExplorer-*9.*.mum /c "cmd /c echo Uninstalling package @fname && start /w pkgmgr /up:@fname /norestart"

Now after using that command first with *11.*.mum then 10 then 9, I cannot find any indication IE is installed on my laptop. I have rebooted and windows update doesn't suggest any IE updates either.

Your help and expertise would be greatly appreciated. I have downloaded the stand alone IE11 windows english usa 64 bit version and even trying to install it with the /update-no trigger fails.

Even using the installer link you provided ends with this:
