Downgrade Internet Explorer 8 in Windows XP SP3 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi there,

    I have a desktop with Windows XP SP3 (Dell OEM). IE 8 works fine before. Now I have a webapp which only could be ran on IE 7 or below. I followed this article to uninstall IE 8.

    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/957700#stepsforxp

    After restart, I checked my current version is Internet Explorer 7, but IE cannot be launched at all. iexplorer.exe shows in TaskManager in a short time. I was noticed iedw.exe was running when this problem occured.

    So I plan to uninstall IE 7. I tried all the method in http://support.microsoft.com/kb/927177

    1.There is no Internet Explorer 7 in Add or Remove Programs.

    2.I cannot find %windir%\ie7\spuninst\spuninst.exe.

    I can reinstall IE 8, then it works properly. I need a resolution, please help on this.
