Trouble Uninstalling IE9?

Just couple of days back I wrote a post on IE9 beta release. I saw it buggy and was wondering if some of you has problem uninstalling this buggy piece from your PC. Let me tell you that - you can't simply go to Add/Remove program and uninstall it easily, like you have been doing it for other piece of software. Well, here is how to do it -

  1. Start -> Run -> appwiz.cpl
  2. Here you won't see any entry for IE9 in the main program list. Click on the 'View installed updates link' in the sidebar to see the installed updates.
  3. Scroll down till you see a section for Microsoft Windows and find "Windows Internet Explorer 9" in it.
  4. Right click on the entry and click on the 'Uninstall' button.
  5. After the update is removed you will be reverted to the last installed version of Internet Explorer on your PC.

This above steps are what I tested in Windows 7 .

Enjoy your earlier favorite(!) version of IE browser!!
