    IE11 Removal

    Morning all.

    IE11 is causing no end of troubles for my schools, so I want to remove and block the update centrally.

    Does anyone have a bat file or GPO rules that I can implement?

    Set the following registry value via GPP.

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Setup]
    "DoNotAllowIE11"=dword:00000001

    If you've WSUS setup, you can properly deny it this way but also enable it at a later date.

    This thread seems to answer part of the OP's question ie to stop IE11 being installed, but how can I remove IE11 once it has been installed?
    I am now using WSUS but wasn't a few weeks ago, and IE11 went and installed itself on all clients. There are so many issues with it, main one being it is incompatible with RM Easymail. I know there is a workaround, but I really don't want IE11 on the domain but don't fancy going to each PC in turn and manually removing the update.

    Thanks

    Dave

    Cheers Woodham. Haven't tried it yet, but it looks like exactly what I need. :-)
