How do I switch back to IE7 from IE8?
I recently installed Internet Explorer 8, but I want to go back to version 7.
When I try to download IE7, I get a message saying that another vervions of
IE has been detected on my computer, and it won't let me switch back. I'm
afraid that if I delete IE8 first, then I won't have access to the site to
download IE7. How do I accomplish this without screwing my computer up? Humor
me, I'm 52 yrs old and self-taught, so tell me in simple instructions please
:-)

Thanks!

Why be self-taught when there is a world wide web full of resources?

Are you familiar with Google [www.google.com]? Go there and put this
into the search box:

uninstall internet explorer 8 from <your version of Windows>

Uninstalling IE 8 returns you to your previous version of Internet
Explorer. Nothing more to install.

Yeah, like the other poster says, just uninstall IE8 and you should be fine.
Did that this morning and it worked fine. Though I eventually did reinstall
Ie8
