How to Remove Internet Explore 7 From Regedit

Save

If you are an Internet Explorer 7 (IE7) user and you would like to uninstall the browser, you may run into difficulties, including receiving error messages informing you that you cannot uninstall the program from a specific user account. In some cases, the Add or Remove Programs list does not display IE7. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, or are having difficulties removing the program, you must use the Windows registry to resolve this issue.

  • Open the Windows \"Start\" menu and click \"Run.\"

  • Type “regedit” and click \"OK.\" Select “Yes” if the “Do you want to allow the following program to make changes to this computer?” dialog box opens.

  • Scroll to the following branch:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer

  • Right-click on the Internet Explorer key, choose “New” and select \"DWORD\" value.

  • Enter “InstalledByUser” as the name and hit “Enter” on your keyboard.

  • Open the “Run” utility from the Windows \"Start\" menu, type the following command and select “OK” or hit “Enter” on your keyboard:

    %windir%\ie7\spuninst\spuninst.exe
