At the beginning of this thread, there is this:

"Make sure you revert any/all customizations made to Internet Explorer 9 prior to uninstalling it to prevent any issues from occuring."

Can somebody define "customizations?" And what would be the process for "reverting" those customizations to the former or original state?

Thanks,

Mike

Thanks to DarkNovaGamer I managed to get rid of ie9, but now if I click on the shortcut I get ie8. How can I get rid of that? I don't want my disc cluttered up with programs that I do not use.

Hello ericinoz,

To get rid of internet explorer, use this tutorial

Windows Features - Turn On or Off

Hope that helps

Rolling Back IE9

I have just installed IE9 and hate it !

Have done the UNINSTALL process, but this removes Internet Explorer totally !

Does anyone have a solution to rollback to IE8 ??

Hello Marrick, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Double check in Windows Features to make sure that you have Internet Explorer 8 checked.

Hope this helps,

hi Shawn, thanks for the tip, but I no longer have any references to IE* on my machine

Cannot download it again either, so apart from reinstalling the OS, I am stuck :-(

Normally if you had IE8 originally, then uninstalling the IE9 update should have removed IE9 and restored IE8 automatically. Did you have any errors or issues when uninstalling IE9?

If you have a restore point dated before you installed IE9 available, then you could do a system restore using that restore point to undo and get IE8 back.

If not, then you might run a sfc /scannow command, and check back in Windows Features to see if Internet Explorer 8 may be listed afterwards.

edit1: Uninstalling* IE11 uses the same steps.

*Perhaps reverting IE to an earlier version is a better term than uninstall.

Original post:
I did not see a tutorial for uninstalling IE10, but the steps are pretty much the same.

It may be time to update the title and content of this tutorial to mention IE10 to IE9 and IE9 to IE8.

You might make a note that one might not see an entry for IE9 (or IE10) in the "Programs and Features" window via step 4:
"...click on the Uninstall a program link in the left pane."

I did not see such an entry, so I excluded that step from this video:

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

Three browsers in about 3 minutes.


edit2:
It should go without saying...
...but I'll say it anyway:
If you start with IE8 and then install IE11 without installing any other IE versions in between, then following the steps shown in the video should revert IE back to IE8.

If you start with IE8...
...then install IE9
...then install IE10
...then install IE11
You should be able to...
...revert to IE10
...revert to IE9
...revert to IE8
