I am using a Vista based system. I downloaded the IE8 (beta) from the MS site. Everything seemed to work fine in the compatability mode, except for my games from Real Arcade. The support people at RA say that they are only compatable with IE7, and that I should reinstall it. Since I have large portfolio of games with them, I am frustrated at not being able to use them. I have deceided to switch back to IE7, but I cannot find how to do so. I have tried resetting the internet settings thru the control panel, but that didn't work. Does anyone have a suggestion on how to uninstall IE8 and reinstall IE7? Thanks.

To uninstall IE8 beta 1 or 2 from Vista, go to Control Panel, Programs &
Features, then click on "View installed updates", you will find IE8 there &
you can now select 'Uninstall'.
After a restart, your Vista will have reverted to IE7.
