How to uninstall Internet Explorer 7
To uninstall IE 7 (which returns you to IE 6) follow these directions:
Start, Settings, Control Panel then click Add or Remove Programs, locate
IE7 and uninstall it.
If you upgraded to IE 7 'before' you applied SP 3, you'll have to
uninstall SP 3 first.
Pay close attention!
Read this before installing IE7:
Sandi's Installation Tips: 1 thru 8, 10 and 11, note 12 that's it.
Do not use Automatic/Windows Update for downloading/installing IE7!
Use this link instead:
Windows Internet Explorer 7 for Windows XP:
Save the program to your desktop then install.
Activate Windows Update after installing IE7 to download/install pertinent
updates offered, including Root Certificates updates.
