    How to Uninstall Internet Explorer 8

    Internet Explorer 8 Beta 2 was released a one week back. It has got many new interesting features and improvements compared to IE7. As IE8 is Beta version, it has lot of bugs and people have been complaining about crashes and high memory usage.

    I tried it, but didn’t like it much as it is still a beta version. I uninstalled it.

    For those who want to get rid of Internet Explorer 8, Below is how you can uninstall IE8 in Windows XP and Vista.

    Uninstallation of IE8 in Windows XP is the old traditional way of going to Add or Remove Programs in Control Panel and selecting IE8 from there to remove it.

    In Windows Vista, Internet Explorer 8 is not installed as a program but an update for Windows. Since IE8 is not available there by default in Installed Programs, follow the steps below to uninstall it:

    • Open Control Panel and click Programs
    • Then click Programs and Features
    • From the left side menu, click View Installed Updates
    • Select Windows Internet Explorer 8 and Uninstall it.
