Specs: Windows 7
I installed internet explorer 9 on windows professional. It was using Internet Explorer 6.1 or 7 and I did not uninstall them. How do I uninstall IE9 and will the old ones still work?

When using the old Internet Explorer 6.1 or 7, it's a matter of time, your computer will get infected by a virus.

Further more, Internet Explorer 9 is ok, while, in my opinion, Internet Explorer 10 is worse.

Anyway, if you really want to use an older version, try to uninstall Internet Explorer in Add / Remove Programs.
Windows will then automatically install the previous version.
I did this with IE10 and went back to IE9 automatically after uninstalling IE10.

I don't really know, whether this works from IE9 to IE8 and after that from IE8 to IE7.
Give it a try.

I'm surprised that you were using IE 6.1 or 7. Windows 7 comes with IE8.


I'll start another thread to ask about the virus vulnerability you refer to.
