You can remove IE7 through Control Panel/Add & Remove Programs. Make sure that the 'Show Updates' box is ticked and scroll down the list till you find IE7.

The system will automatically revert back to IE6 - and your bookmarks should be saved too.

For a 'belt and braces' job there's two things you could do. First is to export your bookmarks to a file, then import into IE6 (if you need to).

The other option is to install either Opera or Firefox first. Import your bookmarks from IE7, then they are there to be imported back into IE6 if needed.

Personally, I would persevere with IE7, you'll probably get to like it eventually. I use Opera and Firefox in preference to IE7, but I use IE7 too. It depends what I'm doing, but each one has things to offer. Opera is my favourite, but FF is needed for certain sites I use.

You could also upgrade to IE7 Pro.
If only for the Super Drag and Drop bit.
