For those that installed the Internet Explorer 9 Beta to try it out and wish to downgrade back to Internet Explorer 8. You might notice you can't download IE8 the Microsoft download site won't let you says you have current version well there is a quick and easy way to go back to IE8. IE9 is not a standalone installation for the beta it is a upgrade over top of IE8 in order to remove the update go to control panel - Programs - Uninstall a program - on left side click view installed updates - under Microsoft Windows find Internet Explorer 9 click uninstall and let it run and presto you are back to Internet Explorer 8:).
