Windows 7: I cannot uninstall IE9 Beta

I cannot uninstall IE9 Beta

I should have done this ages ago, but I have buried my head in the sand for a while with this problem but I really need to sort it, so here goes...

I have Win 7, I installed IE9 beta but since it expired I cannot update to IE9. Also I cannot uninstall the beta.
If I try and uninstall, first it is not listed in programs.
It is also not in 'Installed Updates' in fact nothing is in here!

So I just cannot get rid of it?

According to this site where a user also had the same problem, using this command sfc scannow helped him to uninstall IE9 beta.
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker
I hope it helps.

I will have to try that when i have more time and am feeling a little braver.

It is also stopping me from installing service pack 1

Might be wise to install a few at a time to check that there are no glitches.
Much easier to troubleshoot & identify problems then.

Good luck!
