How Do I Remove Internet Explorer 9?

KB ID 0000524 Dtd 24/10/11

Problem

There are a number of reasons for doing this i.e. You want the "Javascript Error Alert" back that's removed in IE9, or your business line CRM wont render in IE9 and setting a GPO to run it in "Compatibility View with IE7 Standards"* does not fix the problem.

*Note: Compatibility View Policy can be found at: 

Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Internet Explorer > Compatibility View > Turn on Internet Explorer 7 Standards Mode

Solution

1. On your machine in the search/run box type appwiz.cpl {enter}.
