How do I update internet explorer while its disabled in the "add or remove a windows feature" in the control panel? Is there a group policy change I need to make in order to do this?

- Do you know what the KB number is for that IE update ? Try the following: MS issues a "Security bulletin" every month in which all the updates are described. Then manually download that update and install it.

Are you talking about one or more of the routine monthly updates to IE, or are you trying to go from, say, IE9 to IE11 ?

 

If it's the monthly updates, try Willy's suggestion, if you are trying to upgrade to IE 11 then go here -

If you are trying to upgrade to IE 11 that would explain why the IE entry is grayed out in 'Programs and features'. You cannot uninstall IE, it is baked into Windows. You don't have to use it as a browser but it will still be there.

- I think the simplest solution is to temporary "enable" IE, Update IE (and disable it again).

- Or do you have trouble Windows Update finding new Updates ?
