Uninstall button missing in Add/Remove Programs for Internet Explorer 7

I was working with a user reporting that when they clicked links in Internet Explorer 7, only a blank white window with no menu/address/toolbars popped up. This issue persisted through IE safe mode. When attempting to run a repair via Start -> Control Panel -> Add/Remove Programs, there was no Change or Remove buttons. So how do you remove Internet Explorer 7 manually?


User is unable to remove Internet Explorer 7 from Add/Remove Programs because the Change/Remove button is missing.


  1. Click Start -> Run

  2. Type %windir%\IE7\SPUNINST\SPUNINST.EXE

  3. Follow the Internet Explorer 7 uninstall prompts and reboot.
