I tried installing the Beta 2 of Internet Explorer 8, but cannot get rid of it. I tried uninstalling the update from Remove Control panels, and it prompted me to restart the computer, but after it restarted I still had Internet Explorer 8 installed. Now, in Programs and Features I cannot find Internet explorer 8 to uninstall it. How can I get rid of it?
