How to uninstall Internet Explorer 9

I hate IE 9 and consistantly told the Windows Updater not to install it and somehow it did. How do I uninstall it?

I'll give it a shot when I get back on that machine tonight. I posted (incorrectly I think) in the referenced thread.

Thanks

I decided to do a system restore. Even though it said it failed, it actually worked.

Thanks for your help.

You don't have to uninstall it,
just disable it under Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Programs and Features >> turn windows futures on or off

now It will not bother you any more.

Personally I'd use something else entirely...

Yes, I wanted to revert to IE 8. I did that with a system restore and I was fat, dumb and happy, as the saying goes.

My restore point was two weeks old so, obviously, Windows needed to update.

I was sitting here browsing nicely with 8 and, unceremoniously (and without warning), my browsing session and everything else was closed and Windows announced that it was installing updates. Guess what? It reinstalled v9.

As far as I know v9 is an optional update so can't figure out why it was reinstalled. How do I keep v9 from being reinstalled?

Hello Wither, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You could hide the Internet Explorer Windows Update before it gets reinstalled.
Windows Update - Hide or Restore Hidden Updates
....or you could set Windows Update to Check for updates but let me choose to download and install them to not have them be installed automatically.
Windows Update Settings - Change
Hope this helps,
Shawn
