I had Internet Explorer 7 and had no trouble. I switched over to IE 8 and I'm having problems.

How can I get IE 7 back? I keep getting these messages.

@Victor Murphy,
That's what you get for downloading a beta program.

Perhaps you could go to the Microsoft Internet Explorer download site and get 7.

@Intrepid,
I have most of my problem solved. The only other thing is: I can't watch Netflix movies on line now. I get the following message!

@Victor Murphy,
Why not just switch to Firefox and be done with it? Wink

@Intrepid,
Because that doesn't solve the very simple to solve problem at all. Kinda like buying a new car instead of putting gas in your existing one.

Victor, just go to the add/remove programs panel in your Control Panel and uninstall IE8 Beta 1 ("remove") and it will revert to your previous version of IE.

@Robert Gentel,
I was gonna suggest that, but didn't realize that it would revert to the prevous version.

@Intrepid,
Yeah, IE betas generally work this way (reverting to previous IE version). Normal IE installs don't show up as a program to uninstall that way at all.

@Robert Gentel,
I tried that earlier and got the message, if I removed IE 8 Firefox might be interfered with, I need one or the other so that I can access the internet!

@Victor Murphy,
You'll be fine. Internet Explorer is built into Windows and you aren't going to get rid of it that easily.

If you are that worried about having no functional browser, download another browser like Safari or Opera beforehand.
