Stupid me went and downloaded a beta version of IE.

I usually never do this sense I've kind of learned that they are always a pain in the $%^, they never work.

Well, unfortunately history has born out once again that with enough lapse of time the same mistakes get made.

So, does anyone know how to get tis stupid %^& *(&^% beta off of a Vista Ultimate OS?

I can't find it in Control Pannel/ Programs.

Please,

John :huh:

Yes,

Thank you for the suggestion, I found what I needed and it worked.

Once again I find that anger clouds ones vision.

If it weren't so upsetting that IE 8 Beta works so poorly I my have found that a little easier.

This angry blind man humbly thanks you for pointing the way out.

Anything that is listed as "Beta" is not ready for prime time. It is still being tested and evaluated by those who are willing to test it. Be careful what you download Johnz414 :huh:

Yes,

The lessons of History seem to be learned the same cruel way every time:

They are repeated!

Agh!

And "Never again!" is what we say every time too, eh!
