DCrats--

What doesn't IE9 do? That may help diagnose the problem.
Reinstall IE9 from a newly freshly downloaded copy (using another PC if needed).

To install either IE8 or IE9 run System Update Readiness Tool first
http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=947821

For the future--Maybe you uninstalled IE9 incorrectly.  Is it right that the PC had IE8 on it before you installed IE9?  In that case you uninstall from Control Panel |Programs and Features|View Installed Updates and look under Microsoft Windows section "Windows Internet Explorer".

It dosent work because the company that supplied the software says it does not.- not ready yet.
It HAD IE 8- the user clicked the "you have new updates" and instlled it without asking
I removed IE9 by unchecking it in th ewprog/features area in control panel
i have rebooted

If ie9 was uninstalled properly then ....go to control panel ...program and features...click on turn windows feature on and off...and then put a check on internet explorer..click ok and then reboot.


You will get u r internet explorer back.

VE3 got it- i did that and it worked - rebooted and there it was!  8 was back on!

Thanks all- VE3 got most the points- the othres got some for trying too.
Just to ensure that we are absolutely clear on the correct terminology, the correct path to properly remove an IE9 upate is as follows:

Control Panel -> Programs and Features -> View Installed Updates (on the upper-left)

Scroll down until youfind Windows Internet Explorer 9.  Highlight and click the Uninstall button.

As an alternative, you can open a command prompt with elevated privileges and execute the following:

 
FORFILES /P %WINDIR%\servicing\Packages /M Microsoft-Windows-InternetExplorer-*9.*.mum /c "cmd /c echo Uninstalling package @fname && start /w pkgmgr /up:@fname /norestart"

Open in new window
