Uninstall ie7 beta 2

Posted February 01 2006

I downloaded an installed IE7 Beta 2 to check if the site I look after was compatible (small risk, but a large impact if their was any problems). The site looked fine, but I never really got in to using IE7. Now I need to uninstall it, so that I can go back to a more stable IE6.

I found the following uninstall instructions from the IE Blog.

To uninstall Internet Explorer 7 Beta 2 Preview and return to Internet Explorer 6 on Windows XP

  1. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
  2. Click Add or Remove Programs.
  3. Check Show Updates at the top of the dialog box.
  4. Scroll down the list to Windows XP Software Updates,” select Internet Explorer 7 Beta 2Preview, and then click "Change/Remove."

If "Internet Explorer 7 Beta 2 Preview" does not exist, run %windir%\\$NtUninstallie7bet2p$\\spuninst\\spuninst.exe. You need to have "view hidden folders" enabled. %windir% is your Windows installation directory, which is normally 'C:\\Windows' on most systems.
