If it was installed as an upgrade (update) rather than the system arrived with it installed... then you can follow the route used to revert (go back back) from IE9 to IE8.

You would revert from IE10 to IE9 (if it was there previous to IE8); then repeat for IE9 to IE8

This M$ reference details it a little more clearly...

If you went straight from IE8 to IE10 I'm guessing (logically) you will just do one "reversion" routine?

If you use google for remove IE10 to go back IE8 (or similar string/search term) - you will the above reference and many others similar...

Won't they accept Firefox (or some other alternative browser)?

It seems a pity to have to use an outdated browser. They must be a bunch of "stick in the muds" who are not too fussed about security.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Chase Bank seems to require IE9 for some business transfers.

I wouldn't call IE9 outdated.

Agreed IE9 is not particularly outdated but it seems from the original post that Blue Cross want IE8, which is not only outdated but now decidedly rickety on many websites.

Usually the boot is on the other leg. For example, often websites suggest that XP users update from IE8 (which of-course they can't).

With Windows 8 around (which now ships with IE10) it seems Chase Bank should get their act together too. I know Win 8's impact is low but it is MS's current OS.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

and (s)he is wanting to back to IE8...

I found a site I wanted to use recently would not work with anything above IE8; which is why I had to revert to 8 from 9. IE9 went in as part of a windoze update. Usually do updates manually, but the just rebuilt system was inadvertently in the auto-mode...

Re #15

Interesting to hear. I guess we all have different experiences with these IE's.
I ended up preferring Firefox on XP, but on Win8 IE10(desktop) seems to be
behaving very well so far.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

I have found that there are a few websites including Chase that have issues with IE10. One work around solution to this problem without reverting back to IE9 or earlier is to add the website to the list of websites to be viewed in the compatibility mode of IE10. While at the website in question, go to tools, then go to compatibility view setting and then add that website to the list of websites to be viewed in the compatibly mode.

Another way to view the site that has issues is to press F12 to access the developer tools. Then you can change the Browser Mode for that viewing to IE10 compatibility view or IE9. I recommend not using anything earlier than IE9 for security issues.

To follow up on my original reply, I have found most of the websites that I have come across with issues have been for Banks so far.

Also Canon utilities for "some" of their multi-function printers seem to have issues with IE9 (and thus presumably IE10 too?): and Canon advise one revert to IE8...

I have an Canon MP600R which has problems when IE9 is installed, but is fine when IE8.

Whether or not Canon post a "fix" for this remains to be seen...
