Okay so my computer performed an automatic update and now I have Internet Exlorer 8 which immediately didn't like some hp add ons that I had that came with my computer. I really liked the Smart Web Printing add on and of coarse it doesn't work with IE8. I really could care less about IE8, as a matter of fact I was wanting to switch to another browser all together but my husband and I are having a difference of opinion as to which one or whether to change at all.

I would really like to just go back to the IE6 service pack that I had that came with my computer. I looked for a restore point because I swear I saw "creating system restore point" going before the update started, but when I went to look for it there were no updates at all. My computer is not even a week old and I am still trying to figure out HP (had a dell) and Vista all at the same time.

Forgot one other thing. After my update my free space went from 90% to 80%. What is that all about?

Can someone help me out here?

Thanks!

In your Control Panel, double click on Programs and features.In the top left-hand corner click on View Installed Updates
You should be able to remove it from there

In Vista Home Premium default settings.
It's in Control Panel-> Programs-> Uninstall a Program-> then in the blue area on the left of the window labeled "Tasks" Uninstall a Windows Update.
(Took me some searching).

As for trying another browser try them all and see which you like best. Safari, Firefox, and Opera are very popular and good.

Thanks! :huh:
Oh and this may be a silly question, but if I delete the update won't I be browswer-less?

No you should revert back to what you had
Here's a little fix from Microsoft that you can run to get rid of it
