Windows 7: How to disable IE9 beta download tool?

How to disable IE9 beta download tool?

Presently IE9 beta's built-in downloader takes over all the downloads and puts them into the C:users:username:downloads.

Is there a way to disable it so that I can use other download managers?

I uninstalled IE9 because of this download manager

If only the default download directory is your problem you can easily change it.

No. it is not the download folder that bothers me but the absolute loss of control on the download itself.

With a dedicated download manager, I can see at what speed the file is being downloaded, increase the acceleration ( no of connections per file), search for alternate mirrors with higher throughputs, schedule the different downloads the way I want etc., which I sorely miss.

The IE9 download tool takes all that away. I have to just keep twiddling and fiddling with my fingers. And my licenced download manager is pathetically lost in wilderness. I am desperately looking for a way out and putting it back on its pedestal.

Good link indeed. Some of my anguish has already been expressed there and in better words technically. I only had a quick run through and in that if I haven't missed anything, nobody seems to have specifically asked for a way to disable it.

Naturally. I cannot ask Microsoft to put their baby to sleep so that my baby lives its life. Can I? I leave it to Microsoft's most valuable Professionals. Let them talk to them and give me a solution I want.

@RainB: I'm not sure what you mean by "too slow." The Download Manager cannot be disabled, but it's basically just a UI feature-- it does not change the performance
I don't like it either!

Well, I got the answer now. There is no way out yet. Everybody is still looking to MS.

Thanks to everyone who joined in here to enlighten me and especially to Jacee for leading me into the MSDN blog.
