3. Click uninstall a programme under the programmes category
4. In the Tasks pane click View Installed Updates
5. In the list of installed updates double click Windows Internet Explorer 9
6. In the uninstall an update dialogue box click Yes
If you are prompted for an Administrator Password click continue
7. Follow the instructions to uninstall IE9
8. When the uninstall finishes restart your computer.

Hope that this saves someone all the work that I had on a daily basis.
