You mean reverting back to IE 7 where you currently have IE 8?

start > run > appwiz.cpl

Check the radio button named show updates then remove IE8. It will restore your IE 7.
I "think" that Windows 7 shipped with IE8 which means that "uninstalling" IE8 will NOT give you IE7.

If you have certain levels of Windows 7 that support XP mode, then you could set up XP mode (which is basically a virtual machine) and install and run IE 7 in there.

It says for XP but should work for win 7.

Did you ever have IE7 in that PC?  If not you cannot uninstall IE8 and expect to find IE7 on the PC.
As has been said, Win 7 ships with IE8 and will install it when you install Win 7.  

There are ways to run IE7 on Win 7.

But consider installing IE9?

i am running some application through citrix on ie8 browser on top of windows 7 platform but its not working. but same application running on windows xp ie 8. Pls suggest solution on it.

If that's the case, you may want to open an entirely new question where you ask about how to run your Citrix application on a Windows 7 computer.  For starters, if you are running Windows 7 Professional, Enterprise, or Ultimate, you're authorized a separate license for XP Mode, allowing you to utilize a WinXP SP3 virtual machine.  This may allow you to run your Citrix client successfully:

How to Install and Setup Windows XP Mode in Windows 7

But as far as the original premise of this question is concerned, no, you can't actually install IE7 within a Windows 7 operating system.  As others have already said, you can click F12 and try switching the Browser Mode and Document Mode to IE7, but I'm afraid that is as close as you will come.

Make sure that IE is configured on your Citrix box for all users.  It's probably a security setting (like adding the website to "Trusted Sites") on the server.  A Citrix application will use a presentation of the browser from the server as if you were logging on to the server and running the application.

You may need to set an IE policy for all users logging on to the Citrix server (e.g. loopback policy)
If you are an admin of the Citrix server, can you log on locally and run the installed (or web) application?
