You didn't think that mentioning WHICH version of Windows that you use
Did you go look in the Add/Remove Programs applet (and showing updates,
too) in Control Panel to see if there was an entry for "Windows Internet
Explorer 8"? For Windows XP, you cannot uninstall IE8 if SP-3 was
installed after the install of IE8. You will need to first uninstall
SP-3 before you can uninstall IE8.
You could also search Microsoft's support knowledgebase at
. There are a lot of knowledgebase
articles there many of which are often noted in many replies in the
newsgroups. Doing a search there turned up:
How Do I Uninstall or Remove Internet Explorer 8?
Windows Internet Explorer 8 does not appear in the "Currently Installed
Updates" list in Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008
