Installing and Uninstalling Internet Explorer 8

Since Internet Explorer (IE) 8 is a built-in feature of Windows Server 2008 R2 there is no way to install or uninstall it using the user interfaces. Instead you need to run the following commands in a command prompt window which has administrative privileges.

If you are only having IE in your machine as an internet browser be sure to install another internet browser before uninstalling IE, otherwise you will not be able to browse internet.

  1. Click the start button and type Cmd in the search box.
  2. Right click on the Cmd icon and click on Run as Administrator.
  3. Choose the appropriate command from below for your need and copy it.

To Install -

dism /online /Enable-Feature /FeatureName:Internet-Explorer-Optional-amd64

To Uninstall -

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

or

FORFILES /P %WINDIR%\servicing\Packages /M Microsoft-Windows-InternetExplorer-8*.mum /c "cmd /c echo Uninstalling package @fname && start /w pkgmgr /up:@fname /norestart"

  1. Paste the command into the command prompt windows you just opened by right clicking and clicking on Paste.
  2. Press enter to run the command, when the command is successful you need to restart your machine to complete the action.
