  • Hi,

    you cannont uninstall IE8 from server 2008 or Windows7...

    you can only upgrade IE to a later version.. (do a windows update to install the latest version of IE on your server ... you will also have some pre-requisites that are included in the Windows update)...

    When an update for IE is installed a copy of the previous version is made...

    If you subsequently uninstall a version of IE, the previous version is automatically re-installed.

    You should regularly do Windows Updates.. to ensure that all of your MS programs and windows are up to date.
