Internet Explorer is integrated into Windows. If you used Internet Explorer 7, it just replaces the IE6 files. In other words, unless you want a extremely screwed up Windows, don't even try to remove Internet Explorer. I'm waiting for the final release of IE7 or Windows Vista to come out first. Why? Because Betas usually have all sorts of issues and bugs.

I make it a policy to never use a beta version of anything. Because beta versions are just what alvino said, and further, almost never contain an uninstall function. You will have to go to search, enter IE7, and find where all the places IE7 is stashed, and delete each file manually. Then go to Microsoft and download.

You could just delete the program files..then registry files if you can.

Maybe a system restore?

Did you go to add/remove software then to add/remove windows components? because i installed ie 7 and after uninstalled it fine. you can uninstall it from there then just re-install ie 6 from you windows cd. it wont mess up your Windows at all.

yeah, you can just go to add/remove windows components, remove internet explorer and reinstall it and it will reinstall the old version and ie7 will be gone forever.
Thats exactly why I use firefox......lmao

IE7 is your new engine. Can't do anything. Try downloading IE6 and rolling back to it.
