How to uninstall IE8 from Windows Home Server
As posted earlier this week, after installation of Internet Explorer 8 on Windows Home Server most of the functionality in the Advanced Admin Console AddIn is broken. If you have already IE8 installed on your WHS and want to uninstall it from within the Home Server Console by using AAC to get to the control panel then you’re stuck: AAC cannot take you there anymore, because IE8 prevents AAC from displaying the control panel (well, this is a little oversimplification – I will go into the technical details of the problem in another post soon).
You still have at least two options if you want to uninstall IE8:
Open a command prompt from within the Advanced Admin Console, then enter
RunDll32.exe shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL appwiz.cpl,,0
This will open the Add/Remove Programs control panel applet. There you can uninstall all IE8 updates (if any) and IE8 itself.
