I Kept getting an error "IE did not finish installing." Decided to uninstall the Beta. I found it in Programs and Features under Installed Updates but when I tried to uninstall it gives an error "An error occurred. Not all of the updates were successfully uninstalled." After all of this IE9 Beta still works. Any ideas on how I get rid of the Beta or upgrade to the RC?

• How do I uninstall Internet Explorer 9 Beta/Release Candidate?
Note: One uninstalls Windows Internet Explorer 9 Release Candidate via Installed Updates, not Programs and Features. Uninstalling IE9 RC will automatically restore the previous IE version (i.e., IE7 or IE8).
If no joy, see...

After I had given up hope, and decided to reinstall Windows 7, I tried this, and I can now use IE8 (and WMP 12) again:
My problems were:
IE9 Beta claimed to have installed correctly but when started, flashed a window and immediately closed.
It would not uninstall. Reinstallations would not work.
No hacks (below) worked.
which did not work, since there was no IE9-Win7.msu file
2. Type then press enter
3. Drag and Drop IE9 setup package to cmd window
4. Type at the end of path and press enter. (like: )
5. Type and press enter
