I need to remove IE 10 and 9 to go down to 8 for software compatibility. I've done this several times before; I know IE10 and 9 are considered updates and typically uninstalled from the "view installed updates" section in the control panel.

However, on a particular Windows 7 Pro machine, this update is simply not listed. I searched quite a bit but couldn't come across this same issue. The closest I found was this thread mentioning a similar issue with IE9 but I'm not sure if it would apply to IE10. Maybe if I first changed the command to "10" from "9" and then ran it again to go down to 8? It's for a friend's machine that I can't play around with endlessly so I'd like to know what I'm doing ahead of time. Any ideas?

Control Panel => Programs and Features

on the left panel click on 'View installed Updates'

In the list of MS software and updates you should find IE10

uninstall it and reboot, that should install IE8 automatically

Uh okay obviously you didn't read my post or even the thread title. I don't know how to put it more clearly than my title. Your solution is not applicable to my situation.
