Default Computer help

OK so I downloaded internet explorer 9 and I dont like it. I cant get adobe flash for this version yet either. I want my IE 7 (I think I had ) back, but for whatever reason I cannot figure out how to get rid of IE 9 and go back to 7. Can someone help.

BTW, I have a Dell Inspiron (new in 2010) with XP.

There was some study I read a few days ago in which IE users as a group were consistently shown to have lower IQs than users of any other browser...

fire fox and chrome ftw! Fire fox takes up a lot of memory after a while. Chrome is seriously the best way to go simple and fast. (the address bar is also the search bar)

Control Panel -> Add/Remove Programs (or Programs and Features) -> View Installed Updates

The wording of that last location may be a bit off. I don't have XP in front of me. I'm sure flash is available for IE9, since it's been out for a while now, but I'd do like the rest are saying and switch browsers.

Do a system restore on your computer, you can get to it through the control panel. It wont mess with any of your porn or porn music, it restores the computer to an earlier point (generally the computer will automatically create a restore point once a month) IE.. it gets rid of recently installed programs

Thanks Weasal, I can now sleep tonight knowing my IQ is not as low as the inter-webz says it is.

To uninstall IE9 you must go to your
Control panel
Click Programs and features
In the top left hand corner there is text that reads "View Installed Updates" Click it
This list will take a minute or so to load.
Under the header "Microsoft Windows" will be "Windows Internet Explorer 9"
Click that and Uninstall


However as far as flash goes, IE9 has no problems with it. I have been using it since beta and have never had an issue with it. But, to each their own, if you have any other questions post them

Have you not ever used chrome, firefox, or opera?

Going back to IE is painful after you've experienced these other superior browsers.

X2, only use IE when absolutely necessary for certain software updates.

I switched to Firefox about 5-6 years ago, then drank the Google kool-aid and switched to Chrome a year or two later.
