I'm having a problem with an internet explorer install on Windows 7 32-bit. If I open ie, the currently installed version is 10. However, when I run windows update, it wants me to update to 10, so it seems like windows update is under the impression that I'm running 9. If I try to run the update it fails. If I go to uninstall the update in programs and features, it shows that I have ie 11 installed. That uninstall fails. If I try to remove the feature from windows, it says I have ie 11 and the removal fails. I've downloaded the ie 11 installer and that fails. Installers for past versions of ie won't even run.
I've treid running sfc /scannow a few times and it hasn't ever found anything wrong. I've tried running a number of fixits aimed at fixing problems with ie or windows update. I've tried running the system update readiness tool. I've tried running
FORFILES /P %WINDIR%\servicing\Packages /M Microsoft-Windows-InternetExplorer-*11.*.mum /c "cmd /c echo Uninstalling package @fname && start /w pkgmgr /up:@fname /norestart"
for 11 and 10. Nothing has had any effect.
