Can't remove IE10 traces and install IE9

How do i install IE9?

I installed IE 10 preview but i removed it using Windows Install Clean Up and no i have no seemingly IE10 install left but I still can't install IE9 because it says i have a newer version of IE installed.

I've run Revo uninstaller but it can't find anything installed and registry cleanups haven't helped so what do i do?

I download iepreview again but when i try installing it, it says it's only supported on windows 8.

I have win 7. What do i do?

System restore might fit the bill...

What's wrong with suggesting you use system restore? It would enable you to restore to a point prior to trying the iE BETA.

There's no need to post a sarcastic retort whatsoever.

I'm sorry I thought you were trying to be cute. I really don't want to go back that far in time and affect the entire OS with settings for programs etc. It's a bit evasive don't you think?

How did you install it on Windows 7 , my understanding was that it only runs on Windows 8 developer preview.

I'm not at all familiar with IE10 so this is just a guess. Other versions of IE can be turned on or off in Control Panel > Programs and Features > Turn Windows Features On or Off. If IE10 is listed you might be able to uncheck it and Windows 7 might turn on the default IE8. Maybe. If it's even listed because it sounds like Windows Install Clean Up has removed the usual uninstall options.

If you don't want to use System Restore you could try running a System File Checker scan to see if any of your system files have been damaged or corrupted. If any problems are noted run the scan 3 times rebooting in between each scan. If that doesn't work perhaps a Repair Install.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Repair Install

Go to Windows Updates and view installed updates. It should be listed. Click to uninstall.

You also may have IE9 through an automatic Windows Update.

Post a screen shot here of a page showing your current Windows browser and of your installed updates if necessary.

Well how did IE 8 beta get removed from previous versions? How did IE 9 beta get removed to see IE 8 running again?

The one solution found for this may require having a second browser installed. But the first thing to do would be downloading a copy of IE 9 if not already saved on the drive and totally uninstalling Internet Explorer. This will remove all traces as far as a record of the 10 install and leave Windows free for a fresh install of IE 9 following a full restart.

It's worked here a few times already for seeing IE 7 restored on Vista and then later IE 8 on 7. No restore points or other programs involved as long as you have the downloaded copy of 9 already onhand.

I was trying to find that same install for IE10 I used so many months ago. They didn't mention anything at the time about it being only for win8 and I had no problems installing it whatsoever.

I tried the add/remove windows feature and it didn't work. I was hoping there were some registry keys I could delete or something.
