Windows 7 Upgrading IE 8 to IE 11 causes user service profile service failed

Recommended Posts



I have a issue when deploying my task sequences with our Windows 7 Enterprise x64 it has IE and we need to upgrade to IE 11.


The deployment was created by using IEAK 11.


After the task sequence is finished I go to the software center and run the upgrade to IE 11 which works fine. However when a new user tries to logon it get the error of "User Profile service fail to logon"


I did some digging and apparently it changes the permissions on the Default user profile in turn it cannot create a new user profile (domain account)


If an account was logged on before the upgrade there are no issues.


Here are some questions:


1. Is there a way to alter the current windows 7 enterprise .wim to include IE 11?


2. Does MS already have a new version of Win 7 Enterprise with IE 11?


3. If no to the above. Are there any suggestions to how I may accomplish upgrading IE 8 to IE 11 another way?


4. If not is there a way to fix this issue with a script or some alternate way?


Thank you,

The issue is caused because after the installation the following files gets left behind with improper permissions for the default profile. Navigate to "c:\Users\Default\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\SQM" and delete the file "esqmdata_setup0.sqm". You will need to allow viewing of hidden files and protected OS files. you can script the removal of this file from all that have it.

Yes I am trying to do it using a command but it does not run. Please see my attached pic and see if there is anything in the command link or anything else I am missing. I did try to run it on a local machine in the cmd prompt and it was successful.


I am thinking I am missing some here in sccm.
