Uninstall explorer 7

Hi i recently upgraded a friends internet explorer to 7 however as this computer is serveral years old it has slowed the opening of web pages down. How can i revert back to the other explorer.

P.s the laptop is a 1.8GHz intel (single core) and has about 256mb of ram. If it isn't possible to revert back to the previous version is there a good free browser which i can replace it with.

The person isn't computer illiterate and wouldn't be able to adapt easily to anything that doesn't resemble IE.

Just uninstall in add/remove programs. It should roll back to IE6.

Google Chrome is very much like IE and worth a try.click here

Goto add remove programs put a tick in "show updates" at the top then look for Microsoft Internet Explorer 7 in the list and uninstall it to revert to to IE6

another note. I myself have ie 7 on my own computer and there are loads of security patches. If these are also on my friends laptop will i have to manually remove these so that i can uninstall ie7 ?
