Windows and Internet Aksplir 8 has been upgraded and did not work after 9


When you upgraded to Internet Explorer 9, it made a backup of Internet Explorer 8 and replaced it. If you are running windows xp you would have had the Beta release of IE 9, as the full blown release will not run on xp. It was designed only for Vista or Windows 7.

In order to get IE 8 back, you will need to go to Start > Control Panel and look for the option to Uninstall or Change Programs or the Icon for Programs and Features if in icon view. Once the list of programs loads, look for Internet Explorer 9 and then highlight it and click Uninstall at the top of the screen. It will remove the new version and replace it with your previous version. You will need to reboot the machine when it is finished.

Once back up and running you should have IE 8 back in place and fully functional.

I want to know on how to uninstall IE8 on my computer i am running a windows XP service pack 3. I just want to install a fresh copy of IE8 . . . . .


Hi josephc_agni,

You cannot uninstall Internet Explorer 8 if it is set as not removable. This occurs if you install Internet Explorer 8 before you install Service Pack 3 (SP3) for Windows XP. If this scenario applies to you, then you must uninstall SP3 before you can uninstall Internet Explorer 8.

To uninstall Internet Explorer 8, follow these steps:
  1. Close all programs.
  2. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
  3. Click Add or Remove Programs.
  4. In the list of currently installed programs, click Windows Internet Explorer 8, and then click Remove.

    NOTE: If Windows Internet Explorer 8 does not appear in the list of installed updates, try the alternative step given below.
  5. Follow the instructions to uninstall Internet Explorer 8.
  6. When the uninstall program is finished, restart your computer.
ALTERNATIVE STEP:

To uninstall Internet Explorer 8, follow these steps:
  1. Carefully select and then copy the following command: %windir%\ie8\spuninst\spuninst.exe
  2. Click Start, and then click Run.
  3. In the Open box, type Cmd.exe, and then press ENTER.
  4. Right-click inside the Cmd.exe window, and then click Paste to paste the command that you copied in step 1.
  5. Press ENTER to uninstall Internet Explorer 8.
  6. When the uninstall program is finished, restart your computer.

If you go to Control Panel, Add/Remove Programs do you see it listed? If not, it did not install properly - try again. If you see it there, uninstall it, restart your computer and try installing it again.

Everytime i try and download anything, the pc runs through the procedure and when finished simply dissapears, i have looked through my computer and can not find it anywhere.. please can you help this is...


Pjamas,

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say. "I bet you have Internet explorer 8 installed" How do I know? This is a problem that just became apparant when people started running the new IE beta 2.
It even hit me. As far as solutions go, there isn't one YET as IE 8 is still in beta it is not supported yet and they have not released a patch for it yet.

So for now your left with a couple of options.
1.) Use another browser for your download needs until IE Beta 2.5 arrives (its not announced yet)

2.) Uninstall Internet Explorer 8 and revert back to IE7 Until IE8 is in a release state (RTM)

If 2.) is your option of choice. (This is the option I chose myself) Heres how its done.

Open Control Panel. Choose Programs. Then Uninstall. then "View installed updates'
now scroll through until you find "Windows Internet Explorer 8" Right click on it and select uninstall

Don't worry all of your bookmarks and personal settings will get transferred back to IE7
After the reboot you should be all set.

If you have any problems with this procedure or have other questions please comment back here and I will do my best to answer.
