Search for Reg edit & open it as an administrator. Go to HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\services. Search for msiserver & change the start value to 4.
That’s it. Now we can verify whether this Disabled the service or not from services.msc.
Below is the command line that I’ve used to install Internet Explorer 9:
IE9-Windows7-x64-enu.exe /quiet /update-no /closeprograms /norestart

/update-no – Do Not Check for Internet Explorer Updates
/closeprograms – Close programs automatically to allow installation without rebooting the system.
/norestart – Do not restart after installation has completed.
Below is the command line that I’ve used to install Internet Explorer 9: This command will help you to remove Internet Explorer 9 & make it IE8.
FORFILES /P %WINDIR%\servicing\Packages /M Microsoft-Windows-InternetExplorer-*9.*.mum /c “cmd /c echo Uninstalling package @fname && start /w pkgmgr /up:@fname /quiet /norestart”
