I totally uninstalled IE 7. But it still has an icon on my desktop and I just clicked it to see what would happen and it loaded!

I went to add/remove and neither of the Internet Exploers are listed.

I went to my program files and found a single file titled "Internet Explorer". From the contents, I'm not bright enough to figure out which one it is exept that it had the emblem of IE 7.

However! I swear IE 8 is running and I'm using it!

What's up? Alias775 :)

Any icon on a desktop is just a shortcut and it can be safely deleted.
In IE, click Help>About Internet Explorer and it'll tell you what version it is.
