Like a fool, I elected to try the new Internet Explorer beta. I hate this and want to revert back. I am using Windows 7, can someone tell me how I get off this IE and back to the last or best version?

That doesnt uninstall IE8 though.....

Its built in, cannot uninstall IE8 on Windows 7. If you installed the IE9 beta, uninstall that one, and it should reinstall IE8 as it was before the beta install....

In the Programs and Features, make sure to uninstall the IE9, and you should be good to go after a reboot.....

The version that came with Win7 is IE8, and that cannot be rolled back to an earlier version.  But the new beta IE is IE9.  And here is how to remove it and get IE8 back:
