i tried to find a way to do it via cmd

but all I found is for higher versions with this command:

FORFILES /P %WINDIR%\servicing\Packages /M Microsoft-Windows-InternetExplorer-*8.*.mum /c "cmd /c echo Uninstalling package @fname && start /w pkgmgr /up:@fname /quiet /norestart"

but even if cmd shows sucess, after reboot, IE is still there

nothing changes...

 

is there alternate way via CMD ?

:huh: You want to eradicate IE8? Isn't it an integral part of Windows7? (IOW, non-removable, but able to "disable" it.)

:unsure:

 

It seems that what you "found" is for Vista? ( also :unsure: )

its not integral

 

few dll's are needed for gadgets and task pane

IE itself doesn't have to be there

 

and even if MUM package exists the **** thing won't remove itself

It is possible to tweak the package registry so dism can remove the system files.

This will:

 

-Revert Explorer to Windows 95 experience

-Not remove files in sxs. These will have to be removed with other methods.
