I am a consultant and for that reason, I need to use VPN to do work for customers often. However, after having upgraded to IE10 recently, I am unable to connect to their system. They only support IE6-IE8 so they cannot help me.

Is there any way to go back to IE8 which doesn't require major system changes?

Interesting, which VPN only works with IE6-IE8? Just so I know to avoid them. :) – jnovack Mar 27 '13 at 19:18
@JNovack: It's a custom VPN for a local customer. – damd Mar 29 '13 at 16:08

If all you did was go from IE8->IE10, according to documentation all you have to do is remove IE10 from the Programs And Freatures menu.

  • Click the Start button, type Programs and Features in the search box, and then select View installed updates in the left pane.
  • Under Uninstall an update, scroll down to the Microsoft Windows section.
  • Right-click Internet Explorer 10, click Uninstall, and when prompted, click Yes.

    Click one of the following: Restart now (to finish the process of uninstalling Internet Explorer 10 and restore the previous version of Internet Explorer) or Restart later
