Can anybody tell me why my IE 7 browser isn't shown in the Add or Remove Programs list even though it is set as my default browser? If a program isn't shown in the Add or Remove Programs list then that means that it isn't installed, right? I ask this question because I am thinking about updating my browser to IE 8 Beta 2 but I don't want to have any problems with the installation if I need to revert back to IE 7. Is it possible to re-install IE 7 only and if it is should I do that before updating to IE 8 Beta 2? I use Windows XP SP3

It isn't located anywhere in the Add or Remove Programs list, even when I click show updates. Any more suggestions??

The release notes for IE 7 say that if I have a previous version of IE 7 already installed I would be able to install the latest version of IE 7 and the previous version would be automatically removed. So does this mean that I could just reinstall IE 7 over again without uninstalling the previous version? I hope it's as easy as it sounds

not sure - why not create a restore point and then at least go back to how its working now - back everything up just in case it does not work
