Instructions for uninstalling IE Beta can be found here:


To uninstall Internet Explorer 7 Beta 2 Preview and return to Internet Explorer 6 on Windows XP
# Click “Start,” and then click “Control Panel.”
# Click “Add or Remove Programs.”
# Check “Show Updates” at the top of the dialog box.
# Scroll down the list to “Windows XP – Software Updates,” select “Internet Explorer 7 Beta 2Preview,” and then click "Change/Remove."

If "Internet Explorer 7 Beta 2 Preview" does not exist, run %windir%\$NtUninstallie7bet2p$\spuninst\spuninst.exe. You need to have "view hidden folders" enabled.

Just a note:

I think you have to be on the account that installed it in the first place.
Not too sure tho, didnt uninstall mine yet... no need to.

As for your slow connection:
I doubt IE7 has anything to do with that.

Just another note:

If you try to uninstall it using another method (such as Total Uninstall) - it will break your system. There is a .dll involved that's linked to your shell (explorer.exe) that will prevent your desktop from coming back up.

I just finished with a repair install to correct this problem and it was a pain!
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
