Hi

 

I appear to have an incorrectly installed version of IE10 on my desktop (win 7 sp1) occasionally it tries to configure IE.

 

I need to uninstall and reinstall but can't find IE 10 either in CCleaner or Revo Uninstaller, I can't find it in Add/remove programs nor in Windows updates. It is obviously there somewhere because if I go to all programs and click on Internet Explorer it opens.

 

can someone advise please

 

many thanks

Download IE setup and re-install IE. Does it work? or does a system-restore point work?

It won't show up in Revo Uninstaller. No clue if it should be listed in CCCleaner.

When you went to Control Panel/Programs and Features did you click View Installed Updates on the left side of the screen?

IE 10, if installed, will be listed under Microsoft Windows. It should be listed as Windows Internet Explorer 10.

OP said they're unable to view IE over Windows' Updates.

Shouldn't SP1 have only like 100 updates after a clean install?

I switched back from Ubuntu to Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 at 27 August,I had to install only 107 updates...unless you installed optional updates also.

I am well aware of the fact that he said he did not find it in Windows Updates. However, I have found that some people DON'T know where to look for it. I provide that information.

The OP did state he found it in Updates. What is unknown at this point is whether it was found as a result of my post.

We tend to focus on the complicated and forget about the basics. Sometimes it is prudent and necessary to go back to the basics and start over.

 

It's easy to overlook something in the list of installed updates.
