    I find internet Explorer unnecessary ( Correct me if im wrong ). Every few month i create custom Windows 7 Sp1 iso with integrated updates & IE11. but now i want to remove Internet Explorer from ISO. how can i do it? is there any serious problem if i remove IE from ISO ( ie. Activation problem or any other kind of ) ?. or it it possible to integrate IE 11 with all the updates but keep that feature disable from the start. Thanks in Advance

    You can do this in NTLite. It will not cause activation problems, it's everything regular.

    You can also use Win Toolkit, along with NTLite. Both tools are even good, it's on your choice which one you will use, because with both tools you can remove IE.

    Also, if you are good in creating custom ISOs, you can also use DISM.

    Leave IE 11 on there. If you don't like it don't use it. I use mine every once in a while if I have to go to M$ and download something. Leaving it there will not hurt anything.

    The errors your getting may be that you have installed some update or updates that require IE 11. If IE 11 is not there then there may be an error!!

    Even if you don't install IE 11 your disk will have at least IE 9 on it and maybe IE 10. Now you would have to remove IE 9 & 10 & 11 and make sure that any you don't have any updates on your disk now that have anything to do with any of the IE's. Good luck with that!!

    This is the problem with creating a new disk every so often with all the new updates. All the old superseded updates that are not used anymore are still getting install because they are still on the disk. They could be removed (I think?) by DISM, but then that would be a bit of a learning curve.

    Suggestion: Keep IE 11 or start from scratch with a clean ISO and do it all over not installing anything to do with IE.

    i always use msdn refresh genuine iso, every few month i download & integrate all the update which are released since sp1 & integrate them but it looks like i used some bad updates. Usually i use Windows updates downloader but i couldn't find latest list so this time i used AutoPatcher to download updates since it download updates directly from MS like wud. ithink i got some bad updates this time. plz someone share the links for all the good updates ( Since SP1 ) so i can integrate them. thanks in advance.
