[IE] How to uninstall IE8 and reinstall IE8 on Win 7
I'm need to uninstall and reinstall IE8 on Win 7. I've used the "turn off a windows function" via control panel etc. but it is not uninstalling the software. When I shut down and bring the system back up and then turn the function back on the same problem is appearing. I need a whole new copy of IE 8 and the current one wiped out.
You cannot uninstall IE8 in Windows 7 as it is native to the OS. The best you can do is what you have aleady done = "turning off as a windows function" Do you have a Win7 64-bit computer? If so you should have access to an IE 8 64 which might be an option. Also IE 9 should be available through Windows update. And of course other browser choices like Firefox & Chrome etc.
Firefox is ok, but older family member can't deal with any more change, and there must be something on the computer causing this so from security standpoint I guess I'll try to restore an image I had from before.
