Hello,
How can I revert from IE9 to IE8 on Windows 7 64-bit?

I cannot tolerate that annoying message "Show Risk blah..." that appears on almost every web page I visit
BTW, how can people tolerate this?  it is the most annoying thing I have ever encountered in software.

OR

If I have to use IE9, how can I disable those annoying messages that pop up at the bottom of almost every web page?

Thanks

You can turn off the Smart Screen filter to disable the messages. IE, Tools, Smart Screen filter and Turn off.

This is preferable, in my opinion, to uninstalling it, since IE10 is due out soon.

However, to uninstall, go to Windows Updates, Installed Updates and scroll down to IE9. Remove the installed update and it will revert you to IE8.

To remove IE9 go to Control Panel -> Programs and Features -> Turn Windows features on or off -> and uncheck IE9

Some of the messages come from settings in IE Tools|Internet Explorer|Security tab|Custom level settings.  We would have to know each message to tell you which setting.

Hi Thinkpad
I still get the following messages: "Only secure content is displayed.  What's the risk?
And then I have to select the "x" to close the message.
Thanks!

I get that message only occasionally and it occurs only for a small number of sites.

Try resetting IE. This brings back IE to out-of-the-box settings. IE, Tools, Internet Options, Advanced and Reset. This also deletes saved passwords so make sure you have a record.

Once reset, see if the behaviour changes and post back.  .... Thinkpads_User

Also, once reset, or even otherwise, take a look at this site for another way to disable this message. Look down near the bottom.
