I have a question here that I hope someone can answer.

I recently upgraded to IE9 on a Windows 7 32 bit OS. The problem is the main website that I will be working with for my company does not yet support IE9 (next release will) and thus a lot of the clients I will be working with will also not be using IE9 so I will have to have IE8 put back on my computer.

The trouble is the Microsoft site doesn't offer a download link for IE8 Win 7 32bit. They only offer Vista, XP and Server 2000.

Can anyone help me find a link or a way to get IE8 back on here?

Have you tried compatibility mode?

Anyway, you just need to uninstall IE9 to revert to 8.

I don't see an option for compatability mode since downloading and install it essentially makes it the only option for anything IE related.

How do you go about uninstalling IE9? I went the control panel route to programs and "turn Windows features on and off" and did it from there. However now there's no IE at all.

Thanks for the help. I figured it out right after my last reply. You treat IE9 as an update to the IE hierarchy and remove it through that screen.
