    If you are using XP, I think you can just Add/Remove programs to get rid of it.

    If you are using Vista, Control Panel > Programs > Uninstall Program to get rid of it.

    Hope that helps.

    I gues that's why they call it a beta, it's been fine with me, in fact it's actually faster :)

    Anyway to uninstall IE8, see here, MS has a whole page on IE8.

    How to uninstall Internet Explorer 8 Beta 2
    To uninstall Internet Explorer 8 Beta 2 in Windows Vista, follow these steps: 1. Click Start, type Programs and Features in the Start Search box, and then click Programs and Features in the Programs list.
    If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password, or click Allow.
    2. In the Tasks pane, click View installed updates.
    3. Click Internet Explorer 8 Beta 2, and then click Uninstall.
    If Internet Explorer 8 Beta 2 does not appear in the Currently Installed Updates list, run the following command at an elevated command prompt:
    FORFILES /P %WINDIR%\servicing\Packages/M Microsoft-Windows-InternetExplorer-8*.mum /c "cmd /c echo Uninstalling package @fname && start /w pkgmgr /up:@fname /norestart"

    If you have SP3 on XP, you may want to see here.
