How to rollback previous IE version ?
  

I have recently upgraded my web browser, Internet Explorer to its latest version, IE 8. I am finding difficult to use it with some of its new and weird features. So I have decided to switch back to my previous version of Internet Explorer that I was using. I want to ask how can I rollback to my previous IE version ?

Kindly provide your useful ideas..... thank you

In the Add / Remove programs, make sure show updates box is ticked. This will allow you to view all the recent and latest updates made. Now remove the most recent version of the internet explorer. This should rollback to the previous one.
