I would strongly advise you to UNINSTALL IE8 via Add/Remove Programs, if
I would never recommend using System Restore or ERUNT right off the bat to
uninstall anything, especially an IE upgrade, Service Pack, or Windows
How to uninstall or remove Internet Explorer 8
I would strongly recommend disabling your anti-virus application and any
anti-spyware applications (other than Defender) before installing (or
uninstalling) an IE upgrade. If you're running a third-party firewall, I
would recommend disabling it and then enabling the Windows Firewall before
installing (or uninstalling) an IE upgrade.
Tip: Reboot twice after installing IE8 Final.
Tip: Make certain that your anti-virus application, any anti-spyware
applications (other than Defender), and your third-party firewall (if any)
is supported in IE8 Final before you decide install it.
