I am unable to install any version Internet Explorer. OS is Win 7 Home Premium. Installation process for IE11 reports that a newer version of IE is already installed on the machine and installation will not proceed. Here's the rub, Internet Explorer does not appear on the list of installed programs either on the start menu or the control panel add/remove programs list. A search for iexplore.exe comes up empty. The "iexplore.exe" does not exist in Program Files/Internet Explorer. I have edited the registry to show that version 9 is installed, (there are a million references to Internet Explorer in the registry), subsequent attempts to install version 11 still report that a newer version is already installed and will not proceed. Attempts to install version 9 have similar results only that the installer reports that version 9 is already installed and will not proceed. Wasting a lot of time on this issue, can anyone offer a solution? Thank you very much.
