SOLVED: Can Not Install Internet Explorer 11 (or 10, or 9)

If you find the IE (Internet Explorer) will not install there are several things to try but I have found the most effective to be:

UNINSTALL THE CURRENT VERSION OF INTERNET EXPLORER:

  1. CONTROL PANEL > PROGRAMS AND FEATURES > on the top left click VIEW INSTALLED UPDATES
  2. Either find INTERNET EXPLORER or just perform a search (top right corner)
  3. Attempt to UNINSTALL the version you have

RUN SYSTEM FILE CHECKER:

  1. Run a CMD window using RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR
  2. type SFC /SCANNOW
  3. wait and reboot as directed

RUN THE MICROSOFT FIX IT TOOL:

  1. Run the Microsoft Internet Explorer Uninstall Repair Tool from HERE.
  2. Reboot as directed
  3. Read and follow the steps in UNINSTALL THE CURRENT VERSION OF IE above
  4. Reboot as directed
  5. Download the current Internet Explorer from Microsoft HERE and install it.

    I had the same problem, but I knew the issue was to do with pre-requisite updates to windows. I unhid the Windows MSRT and installed it then alot of updates became available and then I patched it up and blam was able to update to IE 11.
