How to install IE8 on Windows 7?

I made the mistake of uninstalling the IE9 update on Windows 7. As described on a Microsoft webpage, the previous version of Internet Explorer should have then been restored. Interestingly and unfortunately, I was left without any Internet Explorer.
I didn't think that would even work? But I was able to download a standalone FireFox portable, and that's the only browser I have.
As recommended in a couple of places(including a thread on Seven Forums), I went to
"Turn Windows Features On/Off" but Internet Explorer is not in my list(not 8 or 9).
I downloaded the IE9 install package from a Microsoft download site, but that install
fails (with typical Microsoft verbosity.)

I think I am hosed, but I thought maybe IE8 would install, if it's available somewhere.

thanks for any advice
