After installing IE8,how hard is it to revert back to IE7?
(This is on Windows Vista Ultimate 32-bit..)

I'd like to try out IE8,but not if it digs itself in too deep to be uninstalled.

Thanks for the link. I'll probably try installing IE8 tomorrow,as it's nearly 11PM here in Portland,OR..and I think I've got to get some sleep.

I installed IE8 directly over IE7 and it seemed to install fine. A couple of days later when I grew weary of the slow launches and slow tabs I followed the instructions on the MS site and was able to uninstall it without a problem.

Granted, this was on 32-bit XP, but I would expect a similarly smooth uninstall on Vista.

I like IE8, makes Firefox look like a snail.
