@,

A few days ago, I tried to remove Windows Explorer 8, fully updated, from my system. This was not succesful. A previous version of Windows Explorer appeared. I am not able to fully remove this version, either.

I assume this is a Windows problem. But I am not sure.

Secunia has six updates in store for me.

Kind regards,

Gert1904.

I have to correct my earlier message. Sorry. It appears that KB2633952 could not be installed six times. Why, I do not know. There are several other Microsoft Updates in line.

To me, it appears to be a Microsoft problem. But I am not sure.

My Secunia score has dropped from 100 % to 85%, which has never happened before :-(

Gert,
U have not told us how U tried to "uninstall" IE.

It is a Microsoft issue but this may help:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/957700

I am unsure of your PC skill level - just be very careful when tinkering with IE. Parts of it are embedded into Windows & are required to operate it successfully.

Have U tried/did U use this tool?

Maurice,

My experience is good. I have 20+ years experience as a software developer.

I used to have a Secunia Score of 100 %.

I run Windows XP.

Since IE8 regularly used all of my processor capacity, I wanted to uninstall it.

I tried to remove IE8 via Configuration Screen/Software/IE8/remove.

This seemed to be successfull, but then IE6 automatically reinstalled :-( I also tried to uninstall this. This dit not work. So I used System Restore.

Now, I use Google Chrome instead.

6 Updates are pending on my system.

**

I will try your suggestions right away.

Kind regards,

Gert1904

Maurice,

Using your suggestion, I finally got an error message:

"update cannot be installed as a newer or same timezone update has already been installed on your system". A Windows problem, indeed.

I removed the update from my system, and ran al the pending updates. My Secunia score is back at 100%:-)

Thank you!

Kind regards,

Gert1904.
