    How can I uninstall Internet Explorer 9 to go back to Internet Explorer 8?

    I am using internet explorer 9 my computer which have operating system windows 7. Before using internet explorer I was using IE 8 on my machine which was nice to work with but now as Windows comes with the latest version of internet explorer I just move to that. For now I want to go back to the internet explorer 8 as I am facing problems like no download notification, inaccessible link in new tab etc while using internet explorer 9. So I thought it is better to go back to the older version I want to know how I can uninstall Internet Explorer 9 from my machine.
