i need to delete IE9 beta and install a better browser

i try to install IE9 and it says i have a newer version, wont do it.

i have Windows 7 64bit i am always getting disconnected, ALWAYS, IT WONT LET ME DOWNLOAD. i either get a connection lost page or a tab that spins FOREVER.

what should i run as a browser.. how do i get rid of the one i have, ie9beta.? i cant find it to replace it, what is the MS number in the uninstall list in add/remove.

do i park ie9 or whatever in a folder to get to after ie9beta is removed.

what do i use, i am not interested in Firefox, dont bother.

click on start type uninstall in the search box select view installed updates locate IE9 in the Microsoft Windows section & uninstall it. On restarting Windows you'll have IE8 back . You can then try downloading an up-to-date version of IE9.

Changing your DNS provider can make a big difference to how fast the internet is some Internet providers provide very poor DNS resolution. Try Comodo Secure DNS

If surfing is till slow try try another browser . Opera has a Turbo Mode which can speed up slow connections or slow sites, it works by compressing web pages on its servers by up to 90% Opera web browser | Faster & safer | Download the latest Internet browser free

You don't need to uninstall IE to use another browser. You can have as many as you like.

Firefox, Chrome and Opera are good fast modern browsers. Which you use is really a matter of your preference. Give them all a try and settle on the one you like best.
