IE 9 Stinks, can't get IE 8 to download.

Hard drive froze last week, new drive, Windows 7 won't let me install IE8, only IE9. Really hate IE9 (tried the Beta when it came out). Just moved and all documents are 400 miles away. Would really like to download IE8. Not that computer literate. Thanks in advance.

IE8 is the default browser in Windows 7, just uninstall IE9 and then you have IE8.

The only programs I see to uninstall are Microsoft.NET and Microsoft Visual C. Origional Hard drive crashed and everything was lost so don't have IE8 loaded anymore.

IE9 will be under installed updates. Not "Programs and Features"
