How to uninstall Internet Explorer 9


Maybe you've seen enough of the Internet Explorer 9 beta for now -- you just wanted a taste, but you'd rather not use a beta browser on a day-to-day basis. Maybe you just want to know how to uninstall it because other people are going to ask you how to do it. Unlike most other programs on your computer, however, you won't find IE9 listed on the Uninstall or change a program screen.

That's because Internet Explorer 9 installs as a Windows update. Here's what you need to do to uninstall IE9 on Windows Vista or Windows 7:
  1. click your windows button and type view updates in the search box
  2. 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.
  3. wait for the Uninstall an update screen to load completely
  4. scroll through the list until you find Windows Internet Explorer 9
  5. click once to highlight IE9, then click the Uninstall button (or right-click and uninstall)
  6. confirm that you want to uninstall (click yes)
