If you've updated Internet Explorer to the latest version, and find that you are having problems with it or simply do not like it, you can restore the previous version of Internet Explorer. This is performed by uninstalling the latest version of Internet Explorer. You can only restore to a version that you previously had installed. For example, if your computer came with Internet Explorer 7 by default, and you've upgraded to Internet Explorer 8, you will be able to restore Internet Explorer 7.
