How do I remove / uninstall / rollback IE7?
Windows XP is set by default to automatically download and install Microsoft’s most recent web browser, Internet Explorer 7 (IE7). If you find IE7 unnecessary and/or annoying, you can uninstall it and Windows will replace it with your previous version of IE (6).
To uninstall IE7:
- Go to Start => Control Panel
- Go to Add or Remove Programs. It may take several seconds for the selections to load.
- Select Windows Internet Explorer 7 from the list.
- Click the Remove button on the right side of the selection.
The uninstall process may take several minutes and may require you to restart your computer.
