Hi,

This IE is installed and native to the OS, Do you want IE9 as an upgrade or have you removed IE8 from the OS if you have you need to go to Control Panel - Programs and Features then Turn Windows Features on or off - then you need to tick the option for IE and then click ok and then reboot

Thanks,

IE8 already comes with Windows 7.

There is no download for IE8 for Windows 7.

To uninstall IE9, go to Windows Update and you should see IE9 as an unpdate down the list. Uninstall from Windows Update.

If that works (gets you back to IE8), great. Otherwise, if somehow you cannot get back to IE8, then you need to use IE9. I use IE9 and it works very well.

As I mentioned, IE8 comes with Windows 7 so there is no download link for Windows 7 version of IE8.

However, for other IE8 versions, see http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/internet-explorer/downloads/ie-8
