Hi, my name's Cody, and I'm working with the Internet Explorer Outreach Team to help answer questions folks might have about about Internet Explorer 8.

Here's how to uninstall Internet Explorer 8: For Windows Vista users
Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
In the left pane, click Control Panel Home if you are in Classic View.
Click Uninstall a program under Programs.
In the left panel, click View installed updates.
Wait a few seconds for all updates to appear on the list, then scroll down and select Windows Internet Explorer 8 Beta
Click Uninstall.

If you're looking to uninstall the IE8 Beta because of stability issues, I'd recommend downloading the "Release Candidate" version of Internet Explorer 8. This version is much more stable than the Beta edition, and will be extremely similar to the finalized version of Internet Explorer 8. Here's a link for the download: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/internet-explorer/beta/worldwide-sites.aspx?ocid=ie8_sm_a

I hope this is useful!
