You have no reason to uninstall it. Use the compatibility mode for antique sites. Put that IE 9 back on to help secure your system.

Cookies are a result of security level or other software like an add on.

Getting kicked off is some other issue related to the internet not the browser.

Repost that issue.

Go to Control Panel and Uninstall Programs.

Click Show Windows Installed Updates.

Click Windows Internet Explorer 9 and uninstall it. When you restart, IE8 will come back.

great thank you. so if i understand correctly, i dont have to install it?
will i lose all my information like links and favourites when i uninstall?
also my reason for uninstalling is that i am unable to stay logged in on a web store that i do business with. i ised a computer elsewhere today and it had ie8 and it was possible to log in and all pageds worked correctly?

Click on File/Export and export your favorites to folder. Maybe store it on the desktop. After you roll back IE, if you do loose any info, you can use the same procedure, but use Import instead of Export.

hi grasshopper I tried that route but no luck. the company says it has something to do with the fact that i might have not allowed cookies but i have cookies enabled???
it is frustrating that i had to go to an internet cafe and order from one of there laptops but it was the only way. i have been trying on my pc for 3 weeks!

hi Jefro
i am now unable to reinstall ie9 it says it is incompatible with my system??
i uninstalled and reinstalled my anti virus and finally i began to think that perhaps it is the internet service provider so i have called them and they say that thier is a possibility that something in the settings that they put on could be causing the problem. so hopefully that will fix it.
only problem now is why wont ie9 reinstall on my pc. im not too keen on firefox and ie8 is soooo slow!

Try updating from within IE 8. Click Tools/ windows update.

Do a system restore point to a time before all of this.

Then you may have to re-trace your work.

I suspect you may be on the wrong link or picking the wrong bit version. Be sure to use the 32 bit browser.
