    go to windows update and look for previously installed updates, click on Internet Explore 8 or ie8 whatever denotes it and click uninstall. you don't need to reinstall IE7 after uninstall it'll be available automatically after a reboot. Good Luck !!

    Hello bfblett,

    If using Windows XP, and you cannot find IE8 in Add/Remove Programs, run the following command

    run c:\WINDOWS\ie8\spuninst\spuninst.exe

    Hope this helps!
