    Am hoping someone can help me solve this riddle because it is driving me nuts.

    I do not use IE as my primary explorer!
    I installed SQL Server 2012 onto my PC to do some studying into SQL, but when I tried to launch Visual Studio it told me:

    "Visual Studio requires Internet Explorer 6.0 or greater to run properly. lease reinstall Internet Explorer 6.0"

    Hmmmm, I thought in a very studious pose, WTF!

    Looked into my system and found that I have two sets of IE, one in Program Files and the other in Program Files (x86).

    In x86 I get the message I do not have Ordinal 701 in iertutil.dll and in x64 I am told I do not have Ordinal 139 in iertutil.dll.

    I have run sfc /scannow with OK.

    I have run a clean boot and disabled Security and then I tried....

    to remove IE11 from the installed Windows features, without success.
    tried to uninstall IE10 without success.

    I am running W7 Ultimate x64.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance
