Ahhhhh! IE8 is really getting on my nerves and really I need to change back to IE7 can someone tell me (how I can do that without damaging my computer)? I already know how to remove IE8, but if I delete IE8 from the system before I get IE will I damage the system??

no i dont think it will damage the system. i think if you go to the control panel you can roll back to a previous version.

I looked in my control panel but I only see IE8 will it automatically change back to IE7 if I delete IE8?

I don't see why you use IE in the first place, it's a piece of garbage (censored). I mean, just try Firefox or Opera or any other browser for one day and you'll see the big difference.

A few days after posting this discussion I downloaded Mozilla Fire Fox so my problem appears to be solved now, thanks.

If you go to the control panel and remove programs and remove it, the computer should revert back to the previous version that you had on your computer(I did it because after some virus remove they had updated to IE8 and mine went back to IE6 which was fine since that was what I was used to); so if you had IE7 it should go back to that and it you had IE6 it should go back to that. By the way the same type thing works for media player.

I did uninstall my IE8 using the Add/Remove Program in my control panel. I'm expecting that it will return to IE7 like you do but it did not. It revert to IE6 the tab less one, I figured I'll just have to look for IE7 but I could not find any. So look for IE7 first before you uninstall your IE8. If you find one please let me know.
