I am guessing that you have IE7 Beta 2 installed. Open Add/remove apps. There is a check box for show updates. check that and IE7 Beta 2 should be shown in there then.

Most of the time there are uninstallers included with installed applications. If you dont find it via the Add/Remove applications then go to where the application is installed. Most likely C:\Program Files and look for the folder containing the application. In the folder you should see an uninstaller in there. run that and it should remove the application for you.

Hope that gives you a bit more info ToroMan.
