Solved Undo new IE11 automatically installed by Windows Update

November 25, 2013 at 08:36:14
Specs: Windows 7, Intel 320 GHz
IE 11 was loaded automatically by Windows Update a week ago. Computer is Windows 7 64-bit and using Kaspersky 2013. Immediately I could not enter passwords in virtually all of the sites where I have an account; some I could not even enter my user name/email address. Using IE Tools and Compatibility View settings I managed to get a small minority of sites to accept entry of the required password. (In fact I had to do this to register with this site.)

How can I correct this situation ? Can I just un-install IE 11 ?

Help please. Thanks,

Dave.

I thought I might add that there are also 2 alternatives:

1) Update to Kapersky 2014
As long as you have a valid kapersky licence, you can upgrade to the next version for free. I am currently running kapersky internet security 2014 with IE11 and have no issues with password entry boxes (or any other part of IE).

2) Disable the virtual keyboard plugin
If you click on the "cog" on the top right of internet explorer and go to "manage add-ons" you will be presented with a list of addons currently installed.

You can then disable the addons that are causing the issue.

I just thought I would mention this as I would have thought an out of date browser poses a larger security risk than disabling some security addons. I may be wrong however.

Yes, I tried google search several times. Basically, am I the only one with this problem and IE 11 and Windows 7 ? If not, Will Windows repair it ?
If I am the only one, then I will un-install IE11 .... I know how to, but are there dangers associated with this course of action ?
Many thanks, Dave.

"Undo new IE11"
When you say this most people are going to think you mean "uninstall".
Could try a system restore using a point before the problem but, then again I am not sure if this will uninstall ei11

Your issue may be simply tweaking the security settings in IE11.

To uninstall IE11 go to Control panel> programs and features. Be sure to click on "show installed updates". Then find Internet Explorer 11 listing and click on it. Select to uninstall. When finished you should automatically roll back to the version you had running prior to IE11.

I suggest you do NOT use automatic updates. I have the setting set to notify me when updates are available. I then review them and only install those I want. I have not installed IE11 yet. Simply untick the box for it. You can also set updates to not offer updates you tell it you don't want in the future.
