Windows 7: IE 10 back to IE 8..

I do not recommend Google or any other toolbar. Any installed Google program in pernicious spyware that can only be partly mitigated by running the Consumer Opt-out | NAI: Network Advertising Initiative.

Same for staying signed into any Google site including Youtube. They will track you and build a profile on you that is creepily intrusive, answering an email for example proposing lunch on the cheap with ads pasted everywhere for lunch specials under $10. These ads will follow you everywhere.

Use only the stable Google search bar built into Firefox or IE which Google cannot spy from. Just say No to anything Google.

I thought the best/easiest way to revert to a previous version of IE was using "Turn Windows features on or off".
By turning off IE10, won't that automatically revert to IE9 (no need to download/reinstall)?
I've never reverted back, so i never tested this, but that's how I would go back to IE9 if I needed to.
(Unless someone here with experience says "Don't do that...")
Am I wrong in my thinking/assumption...???

Turning off IE in Features only hides it, that's all.

I believe you can roll it back in Windows Updates if it's listed as an Installed Update when you choose that option at the top looking at the update history, or from Control Panel>Programs. Or hide it and install IE9.

AH, thanks Greg.

I wasn't sure if removing it via Windows Update was better/safer/worse because there may have been updates to IE10 since it was "first installed"...
So, does just uninstalling the original IE10 Update also back out all updates to IE10 that were applied later?
Or, is it necessary to uninstall all the IE10 updates before uninstalling the "initial IE10 update"?

Sorry for my pita questions

I suggest that you leave the UAC at the default level or higher.

You might want to watch at 720p and in the full screen mode.


You might be interested in this thread...
Do you use UAC (User Account Control)?
...or maybe not,

Hi Clayp. Try this for spell check.
Open I.E. and at the top go to Tools.
Select Manage add ons
On the left of the screen their will be a box Add on types.
Scroll through there until you find Spell correction and put a check mark there.
In the lower left corner of the big display their should be a box with a check mark in it (enable spell correction).
That should of been default but sometime things don't go as they should.

Now here is a great little free program to see what your computer has in it. It works quite well and is easy to use.

If you go to Start Orb and type in UAC you will see
Change User Account control settings. Tick on it and you will find what your are looking for.

Hope this helps with some of your problems.
Get back to us on how things go.

Tested this in W7 x64 and you're spot on as usual!

Thanks for teaching this old dog a new trick.
