    There are remnants in folders, leave them alone!
    You won't be able to invoke either, after those two tweaks.
    Ditto on that.

    You can also try:

    In Administrator PowerShell prompt, type:


    Code:
    Get-WindowsPackage -Online | Where PackageName -like *InternetExplorer* | Remove-WindowsPackage -Online -NoRestart

    Also potentially useful if you encounter any (old) programs that have hard-coded links to IE and don't respect the default browser. And possibly to prove to banks (e.g.) that the problem you are encountering with their web site is common to more than one browser.
    Beware there are still some very useful old programs around including MS Money which relies on IE and is vital to managing my finances!

    It says Get-WindowsPackage' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
    operable program or batch file.

    You need to run it from a Administrator PowerShell Window, not Command Prompt.
