Hello,

As soon as I upgrade to internet explor 9 yesterday, I realized that I can't print the web-page or any comfirmation from my banks web-sites. Obviously, there is a big problem most websites don't support the explorer 9 beta yet. If you know how to downgrade back to IE8, please let me know. That would be very appreciated.

Thank you
Hi there,

Follow these instructions to downgrade from IE

1-First type appwiz.cpl into the Search box in the Start Menu and hit Enter which will open Programs and Features. Alternately you can open the Start Menu->Control Panel ->Programs and Features.

2-Now in Programs and Features click View installed updates located on the left pane.

3-Then find Windows Internet Explorer 9, right-click on it and uninstall (click on yes when it ask you if you are sure to unsinstall the update).
Then a restart is require to complete the uninstall process. Restart the computer.

This will restore you back to IE 8 and you will need to go through the process of setting it up again.

Good Luck!
