Now I cannot use IE8 or 9, when trying to re-install IE9 from the Microsoft website, the installer tells me I "Have a newer version installed."

I cannot find IE in the Installed Programs section in Control Panel.

How can I revert to IE8 on Windows 7 32-bit home premium?

Thankyou very much :)

Internet Explorer 9 installs as a Windows update. Here's what you need to do to uninstall IE9 on Windows Vista or Windows 7: - Click your Windows button and type View Updates in the search box once the results appear, click view installed updates

Don't want to search?

  • Press Win+R and paste in the following: C:\Windows\explorer.exe shell:::{d450a8a1-9568-45c7-9c0e-b4f9fb4537bd} then press Enter.
  • Wait for the Uninstall an update screen to load completely scroll through the list until you find Windows Internet Explorer 9
  • Click once to highlight IE9, then click the Uninstall button (or right-click and uninstall) confirm that you want to uninstall (click yes)
