You were the first one to download it, you tested all of its tools and functions, and you collected a bunch of webslices and accelerators... But now you just want to get rid of Internet Explorer 9. Don't worry, we won't judge you for it!

However you may need help to uninstall Microsoft's latest browser, as the process is not as clear as you might think. Here's a short guide on how to remove Internet Explorer 9 from your system and move on to another browser.

1. Click the Start button, go to the Control Panel and select Uninstall a program (if you have the settings sorted by Category) or Programs and Features if you have the Icon view.

2. You'll see Internet Explorer 9 is not included in the default list of installed software, because it's considered to be an update. You'll need to select the View installed updates option in order to make it appear on the list.

3. Wait until the program list has been populated, and scroll down until you find Internet Explorer 9. Select it and hit the Uninstall button.

4. Windows will uninstall Internet Explorer 9. The process can take a few minutes and requires a system restart afterwards. Note that this doesn't mean you don't have Internet Explorer on your system - Windows just downgrades it to version 8.

    Thanks for sharing the uninstall instructions. Since IE9 is still in beta, there will be bugs and sites / programs that are not quite ready for IE9. For anyone who is looking to report bugs, Microsoft Connect is the place to do so - connect.microsoft.com/IE

    @Manolo - Hope you'll reinstall IE9 after the final version is released!

    Agree 100%. IE9 is a lot worse than IE8. Takes double the time to start-up, to which a small pop-up window appears which blames this on add-ins in the browser. Also, doesn't function well with youtube and especially ebay as search text is displayed at such a small font, and when viewing certain listings the listing text box is chopped in half leaving a blank page at the bottom half of the listing! Back to the drawing board i think!

    I have been looking to remove IE9 almost as sson as I foolishly downloaded it. It causes my computer to crash and when the computer itself didn't crash to sites stopped working then the computer crashed. Needless to say, I am going to be much more cautious before I download another Beta version of any program.

    Internet IE9 does not let you copy and paste. All there is in the tool is Print. I would like to get back Internet explorer 7 or 8 I tried to download 8 but told me my system did not support it. I downloaded IE9 on Saturday and I do not like it..
