Internet Explorer 8 on Windows 7

I need to get Internet Explorer 8 on my NEW windows 7 computer. I goto the microsoft download page, yet it only has a download for Vista, XP, and server.

Anybody know where I can get a W7 compatiable IE8?

Window 7 comes with IE 8 preinstalled, you can upgrade to IE 9.

go to Start & type Installed updates into the search.
select View Installed updates & select the IE9 update & uninstall.
After restarting your PC you will have IE 8 present as its the default for Windows 7.

Any particular reason why you don't want or don't like IE9?

My Windows 7 came with IE 9 preinstalled. I can not find a download for IE 8, which I need to have on my computer. The programmers my employer chose have not yet figured out that there are browsers besides IE 8, and most of the necessary features on the company website are accessible only in IE 8.
