Can someone help me to uninstall IE11 silently please?

Tried with the command linewusa.exe /uninstall /kb:2841134 /quiet  doesnt show consistent behavior everytime. 

And another command line, 

FORFILES /P %WINDIR%\servicing\Packages /M Microsoft-Windows-InternetExplorer-*11.*.mum /c "cmd /c echo Uninstalling package @fname && start /w pkgmgr /up:@fname /norestart"

This command pop-up's error messages thrice, saying access denied; even though i have admin permissions on that machine.

Kindly someone help me.

Hello,

You can try this command line :

cmd /c FORFILES /P %WINDIR%\servicing\Packages /M *11.*.mum /C "cmd /c echo @fname && start /w pkgmgr /up:@fname /quiet /norestart"
 
or this one
 
dism/online/Disable-Feature/FeatureName:Internet-Explorer-Optional-amd64
 
 
 
I have already use the first for IE10 in a custom action to remove Internet Explorer 10. I have just change the "10" by "11", try it quickly this morning on my laptop. It seems to be good, let me know .  The last should work for IE10 but i never test it for IE11.
I hope this help you to.

  • Does this remove 32 and 64 bit versions of IE11? Will I need to push a taskill script first to make sure IE isn't running or will it close automatically?

    **Edit - I've ran both scripts on 2 different machines (they seem to do *something* but not sure what..) and after a reboot, both still are showing IE 11 (x64 and x32)

I know of a script that can uninstall silently if the machine is updated via WSUS. I'm assuming this isn't the case but if it is please let me know and I can share more info with you.

Hello egiberne,

Even the second command failed with error:0x800f080c, Feature name Internet-Explorer-Optional-amd64 is unknown.

Command -dism /online /Disable-Feature /FeatureName:Internet-Explorer-Optional-amd64
