Windows 7: How to uninstall IE9?

How to uninstall IE9?

Hello, my IE9 is playing up and I think a simple re-installation would fix the problem except, I can't seem to find it anywhere in "Programs and Features" or "Uninstall an update" so I was wondering where else (if anywhere) it could be?

Thank you.

I have already numerous times and have been through each, one-by-one and still not found it.

I already referred to that which is how I got to "Uninstal an update" but I can't find it anywhere within.

I hadn't thought of that. Yes it is there but how does that help me in uninstalling, unless it's alright if I just delete the whole Internet Explorer file?

If I remember correctly, it was readily installed when I brought the laptop, if not I would have installed it immediately after setting the laptop up.

Unfortunately I don't have a restore point anywhere near close to that date and in fact the furthest away is only under a month ago although I thought I thought I had created one much longer go.
