*** A little late to the party I know - I've been looking for this answer for at least 3 months now...found and ran it this morning and am happy to report SUCCESS! Thank you very much for solid and accurate advice. ***

Open Command Prompt - Right click on it and Run As Administrator

Run this command twice

FORFILES /P %WINDIR%\servicing\Packages /M Microsoft-Windows-InternetExplorer-*9.*.mum /c "cmd /c echo Uninstalling package @fname && start /w pkgmgr /up:@fname /norestart"

this removes the IE9 with the help of the command line. Credits go to Nadine K. (German MS Support Engineer).

You'll get an Error message regarding 9 files not found

Download and try reinstalling IE 9 after reboot

Microsoft offers home users no-charge telephone support for IE9 install and uninstall issues. You may also be eligible for telephone support if your issue causes your computer to crash or if IE9 does not let you browse all sites. In the US and CA, call (800) 642-7676.

Non-US/CA residents will find IE9 support options on this page: https://support.microsoft.com/oas/default.aspx?&gprid=15672
