  1. Put another webbroswer then download a previous version of internet explorer or use bittorrent or utorrent to get a previous version.Don’t forget to uninstall internet explorer 9 before installibg the previous version

  2. There is no internet explorer 9

    there is only an internet explorer 9 beta.

    beta programs are for beta testers.

    you should never put a beta program on your main computer,

    unless you are capable of repairing the damage
    they can cause and probably will do to your system.


  3. IE 9 beta is a Windows update. To revert to the previously installed IE go:- start – Windows update – click on “view update history” (in blue) – then click on “installed updates” (also in blue), wait for the list to be completed, takes about 10/15 seconds, then select IE 9 and click uninstall. The IE 9 beta update will uninstall and Windows will automatically replace it with whatever version of IE that you had before.
    Hope that helps, best of luck, Bob.

  4. Hi Nettyone,

    Right now IE9 is a “Beta” and may have some issues. If you have issues with your IE9 installation I invite you read this guide: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2409098 and it should help out. I would recommend you remove IE9 make sure your PC and Windows has all the latest updates and then Try downloading IE9 again.

    But if you want to uninstall Internet Explorer altogether just follow these instructions (they apply to both Windows 7 and Windows Vista.)
    1.Click the Start button , type Programs and Features in the search box, and then click View installed updates.
    2.Right-click Windows Internet Explorer 9, click Uninstall, and then, when prompted, click Yes.
    3.Click one of the following:
    •Restart now (to finish the process of uninstalling Internet Explorer 9, and restore the previous version of Internet Explorer).
    •Restart later (to wait until you shut down or restart your computer).
