From the Forums

A user in the forum details it further:

Previously, we've done this manually on a user basis (meaning, we image a computer, remove the link after, deploy). The reason is that we have a few proprietary applications that will only function using a 32-bit version of Internet Explorer.  To avoid a flood of support calls, I'd like to automate this process. We've tested and it looks good - we can push the prerequisite patches and the new executable without any the fact that none of my scripts have been able to successfully remove the 64-bit IE 11 shortcut. Alex

We're using Windows 7 Professional x64 and will be using Desktop Central ManageEngine to deploy the the upgrade. I'd rather be proactive than reactive in this scenario. There major caveat mentioned is that they want the 64-bit shortcut to IE11 removed from the Start Menu.

However, re-imaging every computer in the company is not option, as we simply don't have the 1) time and 2) personnel to accomplish this task. Has anyone ever been in this situation before?

All of my programs in my Start menu have the internet explorer icon.

The next thing I know is that all my file folders in my flash drive have an Internet explorer extension so their icon appears to that of the Internet explorer. I have tried everything with the Control Panel and Help and Support, yet I still was not able to solve it. However, I still can open my programs by accessing it through its file location and in there I can open it successfully.

However, it is tiring to do so. I would be very grateful if anyone can help me with this problem. See if a System Restore using a date prior to the problem takes care of it.
I am JayPeez and I am having a problem with the programs in my Start Menu.

The same thing happens to all my programs in my Start menu. And even I was able to open it right, its icon that is displayed in my task bar is still that of Internet explorer. Whenever I want to open a program, the Internet explorer browser will be displayed so I was not able to open the program I want. It all started when I open a web page file (which is in Mozilla and is stored in my flash drive) with Internet Explorer.

The programs can only be opened appropriately when I click the Safe Run.

GPO Redirected Start Menu Causes Internet Explorer icon to Disappear

One of the policies I have in place is to redirect the start menu for each user to an XML file. This statically assigns the icons on the Modern Start Menu. XML Modern Start Menu redirect method used (I can't post URL's yet): Google Search for "Customize Windows 8.1 Start Screens by Using Group Policy" --The first result on Technet is the one. I have tried adding both iexplore.exe and microsoft.internetexplorer.default to the list of permitted applications without success.

I am deploying a Windows 2012R2 RDSH server. When enabled, the Internet Explorer icon disappears from the Modern Start Menu. This works fine until I also apply the group policy "run only specified windows applications" (located at: userconfiguration\admintemplates\system\). Should I give up and use applocker or have one of you identified a solution?

In that XML file, I have specified that Internet Explorer be a shortcut.

Internet Explorer start menu icon on Windows 2012 R2 RDS

The icon on the Taskbar opens Internet Explorer, but the icon in Start Menu opens Edge again. I unpin it from Start Menu, search for "iexplore" and pin in to Start Menu and Taskbar. There are no group policies applied to the server. How do I fix this?

How to remove Internet Explorer (No Add-ons) from Windows 7 Start Menu

I tidy up all my Start menu items prior to sysprep, but after sysprep has run, and an end user logs in, they are getting an extra folder and item in the Start Menu... It only appeared after sysprep, so any ideas if I can use a regfix prior to sysprepping or Group policy to remove it??? Startup Programs - Change

It is Accessories - System Tools - Internet Explorer (No Add-ons)

This appears for every user that logs in, is there anyway of removing this permanently?

Remove start menu fade effect for all users

I made some research but couldn't find a solution, does anyone know if it's possible at all to disable the start menu fade-in effect for all (current and future) users at once, in other words change the default setting? Click Start > Run > type gpedit.msc


User Configuration > Windows Settings > Scripts (Logon/Logoff) > Logon

Write a simple batch file for your registry tweak and add it to Logon (for local computer). I've just tried it after rebooting and it doesn't change much.

As soon as I switch accounts on the same machine, the problem comes back. However, I fail to see the use for such a tweak for the Start Menu??? If it's not possible, I guess I'll have to resort to some startup script that quietly runs that registry tweak for every user that logs on, but this is less than ideal.

Defender Icon in Start Menu, How do I remove it?

Open up All settings and go to the first choice on the Upper right. Same way that it was done with 8 and 10.

But I am trying to remove unnecessary icons from my start menu, and I can find no option to turn this one off?

With the Anniversary update came an improved Defender Antivirus, This is good!

Anyone know of a tweak that can do this please?

Unable to remove Diablo 3 icon from start menu

Try right clicking on the icon, choose "Open File Location" at the bottom, delete it from there. Right clicking on Diablo 3 here does nothing. I have uninstalled the program (Diablo 3), but the icon remains under the games category.

I have no option to delete the entry. Also, maybe the install folder remained after uninstall? If I right click I get the option to uninstall, which brings me to the program uninstaller under control panel; Diablo 3 is not listed here. Right click also allows me to "open file location" which gives me the games screen as seen below.

See if that works? Do you know where the install folder was?

Needed file explorer icon from menu start

Explorer.exe works--but not from shortcut icon or Start menu

Is that the cause of my problem? Following a tip elsewhere, I was told to look in HKEY_CLASSES_Root\folder\shell, and got "value not set" on one line (see attached). But clicking the taskbar Explorer icon or its icon in the start menu gets me an error message "this file does not have a program associated ..." (see attached). I have shortcuts that let me open specific folders with Explorer, and they work fine.

I assume there might be a fix using File Associations, but I have no idea what to associate Explorer with.

This problem began under Win 7, and carried through to my Win 10 update. If so, how do I fix it?

internet explorer has a (4) in the start menu

I don't know if they were deleted or if I'm free of infection. But I still get redirected here and there. Last week in walmart my wife suggested avast system suite which said it deleted the zeroaccess rootkit and scanning with rkill comes clean of infection, malware bytes shows clean, sas showed 79 adware tracking cookies which I delete every time.
Greetings, I found multiple topics relating toa zeroaccess rootkit virus, downloaded the tools and found them extremely helpful.

Eset, before using avast system suite, showed the google redirect virus HTML/Iframe.B.Gen virus deleted - quarantined......but I still get redirects here and there. One day I noticed windows couldn't finish an essential update, thought nothing of it and just kept on. Well upon trying to install avg via a download link the virus activated to protect itself with browser freeze ups and such.

Well since the removal in the Start menu, Windows 7, Internet Explorer, windows media and windows explorer have a (4) next to them and at varying times internet exp will goto a diff site, like a redirect virus. Rkill showed the zeroaccess and firewall, not to mention mcafee but I knew mcafee wasn't doin a damn thing. Sadly I couldn't run tdsskiller any way I named it or downloaded it. I used Revo uninstaller to delete/uninstall any other antivirus and apps I thought to be malicious, like BHOs and the facebook messenger, but revo doesn't show any mcafee or fb ...
