MSN8 CD wipes MSN Explorer

Requested free MSN8 CD, got in post & loaded programme.
Alarmed when connected to Net - for purpose of signing up to pay about £60 per year!
Up to then thought it was free as nowhere had it said otherwise.

But on trying to uninstall, message said that if I did my MSN Explorer would NOT be restored!!
This fact had not been mentioned either.

My desktop doesn't show MSN Explorer icon anymore.

Hitting the new icon - 'MSN Software'?, brings me back to the MSN8 'pay-up' screen I aborted from.

The net result is that I have lost my normal browser - AND the approx 100 book-marked sites within it.

I have emailed MS 'Support' but, in event they unable/unwilling to help, could anyone PLEASE advise/suggest how I could get back to square one.
