Just uninstall in add/remove programs.

It will be listed as 'Windows Internet Explorer 7'.

thanks guys - will that keep ie6 and settings or does removing ie7 remove ie entirely?

It will revert to IE6 with your settings intact.

It will however warn you about programs you have installed after IE7 was installed and say they may not work if they depend on IE7,this may not affect you but look through the list.
