you can uninstall it from here
post back when you're done with this
also take a look at this http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/29112...plorer-9-beta/ here. but its ie9 beta that they're talking about. i'm guessing ie8 will get back without you having to install it again. but even if it doesn't we'll help you get it
