Latest patch ruined Internet Explorer

Unknown 0 Reputation points

I use Internet Explorer for a couple of things.
Most important is the CCTV security cameras.

Its the only application that works.

I also like the historical buffering that will download an entire movie under "buffering" rather then other browsers who will download a few second and stop. No matter how long you wait.

I have deleted Edge.
But the recent automatic patch has caused Internet Explorer to stop loading.

I literally rolled back my computer to get it working, just to have my computer auto patch again.

Can someone give me the details how to remove this stupid patch, that is causing internet explorer stop it startup and try to open edge which doesn't exist on my computer.

    I understand your frustration with the recent Windows update affecting Internet Explorer. Here’s what I found:

    Why Internet Explorer is Redirecting to Edge: Internet Explorer is no longer supported by Microsoft and it’s incompatible with several modern-day website designs. As a result, Internet Explorer may have difficulty displaying content from websites that use the latest web technologies. When Internet Explorer cannot display a particular website, it automatically redirects you to Microsoft Edge for a better experience.

    How to Stop Internet Explorer from Redirecting to Edge: There are several methods to prevent Internet Explorer from opening or redirecting to Edge. Here are a few:

    Rename the BHO Folder: Internet Explorer uses the Browser Helper Object (BHO) policy stored on your Windows PC to redirect you to Microsoft Edge. One of the simplest ways to prevent IE from opening Edge is to rename the BHO folder on your system.

    Modify Internet Options: Another way to stop Internet Explorer from opening or redirecting to Edge is to disable third-party browser extensions. To do this, you will need to modify your Internet Options.

    Change the Default Browser in Windows: Such random redirects can also occur if you have set Microsoft Edge as the default browser on Windows. To avoid this, use the following steps to set Internet Explorer as the default browser.

    How to Uninstall a Windows Update: If you’ve recently installed a Windows update and you are having a problem, here’s how to uninstall the update:

    Select Start > Settings > Windows Update > Update history > Uninstall updates.

    On the list that appears, locate the update you want to remove, and then select Uninstall next to it.
