You reverted back to IE7 from IE8. To do that you had to uninstall sp3 to pull IE8 off. You reinstalled sp 3 then IE7 and all the updates that were stripped from removing sp3. Now you get "ie4uinit.exe - Entry Point Not Found". "The procedure entry point RunSetupCommandW could not be located in the dynamic kink library ADVPACK.dll".

You had a bunch of Windows updates including IE11. All installed successfully. You tried to run IE but it wouldn't. Only a blank page appeared for a few seconds which then disappeared. You noticed in Autoruns that ie4uinit.exe was not found so you presumed it was a corrupted update and uninstalled it. Rebooted and IE10 was back. Tried to run it but no luck, the same blank screen and the same missing of ie4uinit.exe.

You've recently upgraded to Window 7 Pro, and also installed the sysinternals suite, and this error shows up when executing autoruns: Internet Explorer File not found: C: \Windows\ system32\ ie4uinit.exe.

When the ie4uinit.exe error was noticed in Autoruns, it could be an invalid update and thus lead to failure to load it, or it is likely a false report from Autoruns.

As the ie4uinit.exe is an important part of Internet Explorer, any issue with your IE will give rise to this kind of errors.
