Microsoft's version of this: How do I uninstall or remove Internet Explorer 8?
Not to mention MS's technet article: Microsoft Fix it BLOG : Uninstall Internet Explorer 8.
(Note the mention: "A Service Pack or Windows Update is blocking the "Fix it" from uninstalling Internet Explorer 8".
If you have installed SP's or security updates you may not be able to use "Add/Remove Programs" or the command line "spuninst".)

There are a number of blogs and forums that have posted methods to manually extract IE8, but I don't recommend this for anyone that isn't prepared for some long hours, familiarity with the registry, and a current (slipstreamed) version of the installation CD (XP or Vista).

There's always the Compatibility View :-(

Good Luck!

Try uninstalling IE8 and it should put IE7 back in. Failing that uninstall 8 then 7 then update to 7. Of course if they want you to use 8 then they probably took 7 off the udate page. Then you could backup hard drive, re-install windows, put in the service packs and get back to IE7. Option 3: learn to live with 8.

Replace internet explorer 8 with internet explorer 7


You need to find the old installation files for IE7, uninstall IE8, install IE7 and then make sure that automatic updates are switched off, otherwise Windows will update it to IE8 again automatically.

Are you sure you want to use IE7? IE8 is more secure.

In fact, Firefox is much more secure and faster than either IE7 or IE8.

Short ans, you can't uninstall, without a lot of agro, nice microsoft.

Have you carried out the repair prog. Try downloading another copy and reinstalling, should give you choice to repair?

Go to microsoft website and checkout explorer 8 Forum or enter in search pane uninstall Explorer8. Be prepared to be enlightened?

Alternative save all your important files docs etc, fatal, clean format and reinstall sys.

Have you tried a "Restore to Point"

I am unabale to use smart web printing with IE8. I have a C4480 multifunction printer


In answer to your question, yes, there is no harm in leaving Add-ons disabled, however, some website features like Flash applets will not automatically start. Let’s try uninstalling IE8 and rolling back to IE7 to see if this resolves the print problem or to determine if there is something else going on. Here is a link the link to a Microsoft Knowledge Base article that has the steps to uninstall IE8 and return to IE7:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/957700
Once you are back to IE7 try and print from IE and some of your other apps. If you can print from IE7 then we will know that there is something definitely within your IE8 installation we need to troubleshoot. If you are STILL unable to print web pages we will know there is something else going on. Lets us know what you find out.

Exactly same problem


Because of security fixes it is unwise to revert back to IE6. Simply install IE8 and don't use it. Try Firefox, Safari, or Opera for your web browser. Microsoft products are ALL designed to be updated regularly. Probably the fastest way to fix the error is simply wipe your hard drive and reinstall the operating system. I think I would try repairing your IE6 installation if you have not tried that already. Control panel, add/remove programs area will have the option.

Added ie 8 beta, uninstalled, ie will not start


basically your ie8 uninstallation is bad...try and see if you can get an ie8 uninstallation toolkit at microsoft.com to uninstall ie8 properly. Else, you might have to reinstall ie7 after uninstalling ie8.. this same problem persisted when micorosft released ie7 and i was supporting ie7 when released. so take my word. happens with all ie beta versions..
