Uninstall Internet Explorer 9

Web browsing is the No. 1 thing people do on their Windows-based PC, and as such, they increasingly expect the same experience they associate with their PC applications from their favorite Web-based e-mail service, photo site or social network site. 
This kind of immersible experience does not occur on the Web today, and using a browser is often associated with limited performance and interactivity. Microsoft developed Windows Internet Explorer 9 to help change this.

I noticed that many people have been having trouble un-installing Internet Explorer 9.0 Beta. This is because Internet Explorer 9.0 does not show up in the add/remove programs page. Microsoft is not too good in this regard. Anyhow, Need not be afraid, here is a quick and easy way to remove it.

  1. Press the Windows Key and type "view updates" (with no quotes) in the windows search box. Note: Or you can press Windows Key+R and paste "C:Windowsexplorer.exe shell:::{d450a8a1-9568-45c7-9c0e-b4f9fb4537bd}" (with no quotes) and press enter.
  2. After the entire uninstall list finishes loading (this can take some time) look for "Windows Internet Explorer 9" in the list.
  3. Select Windows Internet Explorer 9 and click the uninstall button. Hit ok to confirm.
  4. Congrats you no longer have Internet Explorer 9.0. I recommend that you reboot your computer now.
Hope you enjoyed testing the beta.
