I do not think you can go back on the Explorer Updates. The only real option - If you have an XP CD-, is to save your work to another Drive or DVD/CD's.
Then format and rebuild your system again.

IE7 is quite stable.

No it will revert to IE7. But much better than IE6 which was very susceptible to malware.

"if I remove IE8 using add remove programs will it revert back to IE6".

Yes, It worked for me.

I assume that you were using IE6 using prior to installing version 8.

(ps: I never had version 7 installed).

What sort of problems are you having with ie8?
Seems pretty stable in Vista 64 and W7

ie6 has too many security holes, so best go for ie7 or Firefox!
