Desperately seeking accurate method to inventory IE9 and perform silent uninstall. I beleive that it may be inventoried as "Update for Microsoft Windows (982861)" but I need some concurrence this is the correct update to inventory (IE9 does not inventory as an application)
I have tried the uninstall script using KBOX script with bat file created from silent uninstall command line from the blogs;
FORFILES /P %WINDIR%\servicing\Packages /M Microsoft-Windows-InternetExplorer-*9.*.mum /c “cmd /c echo Uninstalling package @fname && start /w pkgmgr /up:@fname” however this was not successful in test. It just doesn't do anything.


Thanks for sharing your successes with eradicating this abomination.

You could use a custom inventory rule to look for file version on iexplore.exe; that should report the same way for any installation method (Online install, patching, offline distribution, etc.).
