having a lot of trouble trying to reinstall IE9

I am trying to recover a windows 7 x64 Internet Exporer 9.  I uninstalled IE9 and restarted and am now trying to recover IE9 the the Microsoft Download site.  I have been working on this for about an hour and half so far with no luck and having checked out multiple forums including EE with no luck.  After uninstalling IE9 I figured it would revert to IE8, but that didn't work.

Can anyone advise on what is going on here.

no task manager was available and a short list of services were viewable.

I finally got it, there were some remnants that I fixed by running an forfiles.. batch script

Go to Windows Update -> Installed Updates and look see if IE9 is in there (near the bottom). If it is, try removing the update and see what happens. This is the correct way to uninstall IE9.

Then, go to Control Panel -> Programs and Features -> Windows Features. See if IE is selected. If not, select it, allow it to complete.

Now restart and see if IE is there and if so what version. ... Thinkpads_User

Does that mean Task Manager is not available?  Right Click on the Taskbar and go Start Task Manager.

What happens when you try to execute the IE9 download from the Micorsoft site.You should have downloaded the 64-bit version only (you can still run a 32-bit browser from the 64-bit version). What happens when you try to install the downloaded file?

Was IE available (selected) in Windows Features (Programs and Features)?
