IE9 Won't uninstall

I logged on like any other day, and IE had the MSN homepage set. (I installed IE9 optimized for Bing and MSN) Usually it's YouTube. Also, when I go to click a link in for example Windows Live Mail or Skype it will open in IE9 64-bit. I've tried resetting the advanced settings and default programs ect. still haven't been able to fix this. Whatever happened

A full anti-virus scan in Safe Mode may be your best bet initially.

IE9 Somehow reset itself

Might have answered your own question as to why it reset itself there.

What is IE9 Optimized for Bing and MSN? Is that some modified version or something?

If you go on MSN website you'll find it. It said 'Upgrade to this' so I did. I wish I didn't
It's never done this before though. Why now?

Well, the good news is that you may be able to undo it. You can either uninstall IE9 and reinstall the previous version of IE9, without the modification, or if that's not possible, do a System Restore to a date just prior to your IE upgrade.

I overwrite old system images on my backup drive. But I tried uninstalling IE9 and every time I try it gives me no browser at all. How do I fix this?

IE9 Won't uninstall

Every time I go to uninstall IE9, I get no browser at all. It leaves a hole too, icons on my desktop are missing and whenever I go into control panel for example and navigate somewhere it brings up a new window.I "accidentally" installed IE9 optimized for Bing and MSN which keeps changing my homepage, so all I want is the normal IE9. Here are the things I've tried: Restarting after uninstalling IE, going into Windows Features to see if it's disabled and uninstalling literally every add-on for IE9. I did look at the tutorial (That's where I learned how to uninstall it) but it doesn't help.
