Access the Add-Remove Programs section and you'll see it under "Windows Internet Explorer 8".. It should automatically revert to IE7.
And yes, all reports here are showing IE8 to have a case of the "slows".
Hope this helps.
Heavily relying on yahoo games and yahoo messenger I upgraded to IE8 a few days ago in hopes the upgrade would enhance the overall performance as promissed.
To my dismay I now no longer reach two of my favorite websites (yahoo chess & yahoo pool). The process getting to my website starts smoothly but ultimately denies access (window does not open for me. Iam told to allow popups which I do. Sometimes a message appears telling me that certain games do not work with IE8.
I am tempting to return to IE7 if that is possible. How can I get rid of IE8? I want my favorite games back.
