I don't know why Cannon printer does not work with IE9, it just said that it could not complete the download of the software with IE9
I just (now) went into Windows Features and IE8 is not available only IE9 (it is deselected). I do not have any IE on my system right now. (I have looked under programs and the icon was removed from my side bar)
At the Download Internet Explorer 8 - Microsoft Windows
web site they do not have a download for Windows 7
Right now I am using Firefox but I want to see how my web pages look in IE as well as Firefox.
Should I try turning on IE9 and see if my printer works?
I asked you to open IE > click Help > click About Internet Explorer, and tell us what did you see.
Well, what did it say ? IE8 or IE9 ?
If you want to " uninstall " ( and I mean 'uninstall'
) IE9, you went the wrong way.
Start > Control Panel > Programs and Features > left column, click View Installed Updates
> wait for loading > scroll down to find Windows Internet Explorer 9 > right click click uninstall.
EDIT ...... clarification.
After you have uninstall IE 9, the system will revert to its PREVIOUS
IE version. Not neccessarily back to IE8.
If you started from IE7 and then moved on to IE9 without going through IE8 stage, then it will revert to IE7.
