Internet Explorer 9 (IE9): Problems after Download?

By Updated on

If you’re a fan of Internet Explorer, you probably won’t need us to tell you that Microsoft has just put the download for Internet Explorer 9 online on one of their websites within the last few hours. We want to hear of any problems you’ve had either installing the software, or afterwards whilst using it.

If you haven’t downloaded IE9 yet, you can do so over at Microsoft’s Beauty of the Web page here. It’s only available for PC users at the moment and you may be disappointed to hear that Windows XP is not supported, only Windows 7, Vista, and Windows Server 2008 for the time being.

Aside from a completely revamped User Interface, Internet Explorer 9 will benefit from much faster overall performance thanks to a brand new javascript engine called Chakra. You’ll also get a security-enabled download manager, address bar search and many more features.

While there may not be any noticable problems with IE9 now since the download has only been up for a few hours, it is inevitable that problems and bugs will filter out in the coming weeks, so if you notice anything serious with the software that you feel we should know about, leave us a comment below.

Our only problem with Internet Explorer 9 right now, is that Mac is not supported at the moment. We’re hoping that Microsoft is planning to change this though since it’s in their best interests to make it available on all operating systems.

    flash games are laggy and has already once crashed ie, for me it was zynga poker on facebook, also on youtube i could click suggested videos on youtube but received no reponse had to close ie and open again :(

    • Andrew

      unfortunately zynga poker is extremely slow on IE9 vs IE8. Hope this gets fixed soon

    • guest

      because zynga games are not secure. go to your settings in facebook and you will see what I mean. when you can't run a zynga game with the https on rather then http.. you know you have a security problem.. IE 9 is just protecting you.

      • emily

        How do you fix it?

    • SASKA

      I downloaded IE9 yesterday and have had nothing but problems every since! Whenever I go into Yahoo and try to SEND an email, I have to wait until "loading" has finished, then exit out of Yahoo and re-enter it again just to get off the page with the email on it! It's messed up my address bars and subject line at top of all emails and I HATE IT!! I want to clear it out of my system but don't know how to get rid of it without losing whatever explorer I had before. HELP!

    • Matt Walters

      Same Issue for me, noticed problems straight away. Wished I had never installed it, not good for what Microsoft called an essential update.

  • Jason

    I've noticed problems within 10 minutes … the first thing I tried was the "Beauty of the web" thing as soon as it opens for the first time. Crashed while playing with the music app. Also Twitter.com had problems.

  • Ned

    I already found pages that don't display properly. For example: http://www.bbr.com/shopping/berrys-own-selection-…. This displays OK in Firefox and Chrome.

  • Martin Wismer

    Freight company online booking forms completely off-centre, impossible to pan around or zoom to access vital icons / buttons , yet it works normal at the same time slot on all other machines with previous versions of IE. Do not like the new geopgraphical changes on some on the now 'upside down' modifications on some of the menus, pop-ups….

  • Cesar

    IE9 keeps crashing every 2 minutes on my computer, I wonder if it has something to do with the 64bit version, although my work mate have another windows 7 64 and he does not have any problems, and at home I have windows 7 32 and it seems to run fine.
    Any tips on how to fix it on my 64 bits work computer?

    • Ryan

      Enable software rendering under Advanced tab of Tools.

    • Liza

      Hi cesar….as per the requirements for IE 9 u just need to have a windows 7 or vista OS Both 32-bit and 64-bit builds are available. but as u say it keeps crashing.. may be there is some virus problems in ur system. i would suggest you to scan ur system completely…and then re dowanload IE 9…and if still it does not work u must contact some technical support person. or u can go to this website they are good at it… http://www.hcltouch.com Thanks

    • Michelle

      I am having the same problems as you are. Everything was fine untill 9 was installed.

      • D-Man

        Only had IE9 a few days before it completely crashed my system! Luckily my comp did a self-diagnostic and reset itself to a previous restore point. Now IE8 is back and I WONT be installing IE9 again!

      • LocalLady

        I am NOT a computer genius, and I HATE it – I lost my tool bar, and in coments sections such as thi, it "hops" up & down without warning. I will have to figure out now how to get rid of it & go back to what I had.

  • jstaylor1976

    just tried to download ie9 downloaded ok but it wont open and keeps telling me internet explorer not working. Seems to be stuck in a loop as it keeps trying to connect then shuts down then tries to connect again. running ie9 x64 bit version. Pile of Cr@p doesn't work – I just had to system restore my laptop back to ie8

    • http://www.hcltouch.com PC Support

      May be u did not dowloaded it correctly..sometimes if downloading is not correct it creates such problems its better to take some technical assistance because it might lead to loss of useful data…
      i would suggets you to take some technical people’s advice…u can always contact on a this tioll free number 18554252273 for any such queries….

      • Marty

        seeing the download is automatic, how can se NOT download it right?

    • Paul

      you have to diable the ad-ons (bing , google etc ) then put them back after you get it started.

    • Guy

      Same Exact Issue.. stuck in a loop as it keeps trying to connect then shuts down then tries to connect again.

      I guess I will Also Need to restore my system.. ~ Better yet.. REMOVE / Uninstall All IE Versions and use a better Browser. HellOOo FireFox byebye IE.

      NOTE: Hey.. MicroSoft ~ "KISS" => Keep It Simple Stupid.. ~~ nuff said

    • Marty

      same thing just happened to me, and thankfully we did have that restore point, otherwise we could not get onto the internet to log anything.

    • Danell

      I have the same problem. it keep telling me that a problem has caused IE to stop working. same thing .

    • Ray

      how do you restore back to ie8

  • Jason

    I cannot get IE9 to make web pages visible – they seem to load fine in the background, but I'm greeted by a complete white-out – I can't see any text or images or anything! Honestly, is this the best that Microsoft can do? What an utter joke and waste of time. I have tried many other browsers and they've never had such problems. I'm using Windows 7 64-bit with MS Security Essentials. If anyone has any idea on how to sort this out, I'd be really grateful. I tried the Microsoft website when IE9 was still in Beta, but they just completely ignored my requests for assistance. I think I'll be sticking with Chrome for now.

    • Jack Yan

      Jason, you are not alone. I have virtually the same bug: either virtually all white or virtually all black. Worst browser ever (and I include Netscape 6 in that evaluation).

      • JohnG

        Same issue you have described, any updates on what is going on / fix?

    • mark

      I had the exact same problem, had to completely reset my laptop to get rid of it

    • mark

      same here have uninstalled ie 9 and still have same problem now on ie 8

    • Stijn

      same here, loading seems fine but only a white page as display, have to restore back to 8

    • TREX

      yep, same here, after allowing windows to do update. nothing but a white screen, so it was back to ie8 for me. supose it all boils down to 'if it ain't broke don't fix it'

  • grp00

    I downloaded IE9 this morning and installed it, but when it rebooted it reset my system back to an initial state. That is, everything that I'd customized had to be redone. Any software that I'd installed that required a license need to be reset. When I logged off, or rebooted, I needed to do this all over again, and EVERY time I logged off and on or rebooted. It appears to have hosed my system registry in someway and is unable to read it on reboot. Uninstalling IE9 did not fix the problem. I had to do a system restore from a point prior to the initial IE9 install. Anyone else have a similar problem. BTW, I had previously installed the RC version without any problems, but had uninstalled it and was waiting for the official release.

  • Mick F

    Installed IE9 today just to see – it caused problems with attachments display in Windows Mail – uninstalled IE9 and problems solved – wont be rushing to install this POS very soon.

    • Kathy

      I have the same problem Mick — I have to click on the paperclick on the actual email in order for to open it. It brings up a new window then you have to click on the icon and it opens

      • Frances

        Well I installed ie 9 and it won't play any viedos on u tube or jokaroo, it won't play any video's at all, it says I need adobe flash player which I have and it still does not work, so I went back to ie 8 and everything is working fine.

  • Kaushik

    Problems with galaxy website at Perdue state, many of the javascript based links do not work. some work in compatibility view, but you have to manually activate that. otherwise looks pretty stable. I do not like the downloading protocol. I'd much rather prefer individual windows showing download progress to the cryptic little line that appears below much in the fashion of chrome

  • Jack Yan

    Crashed twice in the first two minutes, and first page it displayed was nearly all black (though the links were where they should be—just that you could not see them). Google home page consisted of a flashing cursor—that’s it. Google results’ page was unreadable. I’ve heard of buggy browsers, but this is ridiculous.

  • TMulder

    Sharedview is not working anymore after I installed IE9!

  • edub

    Ie9 keeps crashing on my Windows 7 32bit. Uninstalled it back to Ie8.

    • Ryan

      Same thing happened to me even after a fresh install of win7 32 bit

    • David D

      Yes, got same problem as others. Keeps going round in a loop. If I don't have access to the internet, how am I able to go back to IE8? (no system disk for it :-( )

    • Gigi

      did the same thing to me, also my gmail was out of whack, i restored back to before install, now my pc is working fine geeezzz

  • Glen DaSilva

    my machine is running terribly slow all day after installation this morning

  • Stan

    Contacts in Google's Gmail do not format correctly, rendering the page basically useless.

    Also getting javascript errors which I don't have on other browsers.

    The HTML5 test site at html5test.com reports a browser score of 130 points, as opposed to Chrome's 288 for compatibility. Firefox is 155, Safari 228, Opera 244. The higher the score the better for HTML5 rendering support.

    Going back to Chrome.

  • Just a user

    It crashes and freezes all the time. I Installed the 32 bit version on my 32 bit system and had to uninstall and revert to IE8. Terrible!

  • Stan Shaw

    - Google's Gmail Contacts do not render properly, making the page unreadable.

    - Numerous javascript errors that do not occur using other browsers

    - HTML5 compability score of 130 in html5test.com . I don't know how accurate this is, but it appears using the same test suite Chrome is 288. Firefox is 155. Safari is 228. Opera is 244.

    Going back to Chrome.

  • doug

    IE 9 keeps disabling aero, error says not enough memory. I have plenty (two video cards 1 GB and 16 GB system) Uninstalled it and everything back to normal again.

  • Kevin

    Installed IE 9 and removed it today does not work on my Windows 7, now back to IE 8 and now fine.. Perhaps it does not work with my firewall etc. ?
    I am suprised if Microsoft did not have this problem in the testing phase as it has already been commented on.

    • Tricia

      how did you go back to ie8? I can't seem to reverse it!!

  • Matt

    youtube will not work for me the page crashes every time. This never happend to me on IE9 Beta…

    • Michelle

      I agree Matt. I didn't have any problems with the Beta. Now all I have is problems.

  • Bill

    I have Win7 – 64. On IE9 it will not restart from hibernate. No probs with IE8 – back to IE8.

  • forgetfoo

    installed IE9 yesterday (64-bit Win7), and had much the same problems as others — pages not showing up, showing up blank, or the content simply now showing up at all on sites like Engadget (right-rail missing in Gizmodo for me)… did a google search, pulled up a page on about.com and was greeted with a blank page.

    i'm stunned that something like this was released.

    just rolled back to previous system restore point, to get IE8 back – all sites working just fine under it.

  • Guest

    It keeps crashing on my Win7 Ultimate 64. I tried reinstalling but have the same problem. I tried disabling addons, and turning off hardware acceleration. Same problem still. It's too bad; I like the new interface. Going back to using ie8 and chrome.

  • Erika

    Horrible! On day #1, it kept crashing with black pages, but I could recover by closing/opening IE. On day #2, it's crashing my whole computer, which was problem-free before this install. Win 7, 32-bit. Now, at the end of day #2, I am removing it.

    • Gerard Babin

      I had the same problem, i caused my hard drive to crash, now i have to pay to get a new one and to have my files extracted from the old one!

    • Bryan

      Explorer 9 will not display at all and have had to remove and are now back with Explorer 8.I have tried to download again but although online it will still not display or bring up my home page wish it would work soonce again back to Explorer 8.

  • John

    I installed yesterday as many others, on a Win 7/64 fully updated machine, in fact two clean workstations. Websites such as …… java.com and notebookreview.com would not render. Java only loaded the header but no page content, notebook review, a white page. Other sites I use granted are not well designed but render fine in IE 8 and others just not IE 9 in any Browser mode or settings in Tools.

    A second issue relates to font rendering. Bold fonts render poorly and blossom a bit in IE 9, compared to Firefox and IE 8. Adjusting font rendering in Win 7 doesn't help. It's annoying.

    Tried a few times reinstalling and looking for reasons I was having problems to no avail. IE 9 just is not working for me and I have reverted to IE 8 which is reliable.

  • Jorge

    Once I upgraded to ie9, all my add-ons permanately disabled.

  • Eric

    I got windows 7 64 bit and it never crashed once since I put final on my laptop.

  • biff hodges

    I have Vista – 64. On IE9 it will not restart from hibernate

  • Ptolemy Kerris

    I get some ads kind of flashing NOT in their spots but just flahsing randomly and following me every time I scroll up or down. I also couldn't play my VLC player and my vid says that my windows 7 couldn't support it. I had to close my windows then I had to reopen it and reinstall it. I had so much probs. I think IE8 is better.

  • Dave

    Firewall does not allow pdf forms to open, win 7-32, back to Firefox

  • Ray Yap

    Horrible horrible browser.. it totally fails any quality assurances… I cant download attachements from Gmail. Abosolutely the worst browser available.

  • Glen

    Installed IE 9 on windows 7 64 bit,Facebook games would not load,messed up my Norton internet security,so i ran system restore and it would not do the job but did a parcial restore that messed everything up,tried a different system restore point and same error,parcial restore so i had to undo those blunders in system restore.Finally found out where to find IE 9 in uninstall section of programs and features in control panel and got IE 9 uninstalled and so glad i got my pc back to normal.I would recommend not to try IE 9 until the bugs witch are many are resolved.

  • Jane

    Downloaded new IE9 and the internet wouldn't open properly. Had a completely white screen in the middle and although tool bar showed at the top it wouldn't do anything. Tried to open sites through search and also favourites and although there was nothing on the screen it was showing the names of the pages that I was hovering over. Clicked on one to see if it would open anything and nothing. I tried shutting laptop down and restarting but got so fed up in the end I had to recover laptop back to previous settings and is now fine again!

  • Malik

    Terrible! Won't load full content, can't see my university schedule. Problems loading simple things that were working before! Option asks if i want to see unsecure content, but won't show me what i want to see.

  • Edgar

    Installed IE 9 on Windows Vista Premium and it messed up Windows Mail, the fonts, the attachments, images in mails and when you copy a text from some mail to another, it does not copy the row spaces. I think I'll go back to IE 8 as I use Windows mail a lot. Why Microsoft can never deliver a perfect product???!!!

  • john

    Installed ok no problems, but 64 bit is very slow, so tested 32bit. Forms on certain websites do not display coirrectly and therfore cannot navigate or successfully use. Constantly crashes. I will be uninstalling and going back to IE8. A bit of a failure really

  • Mike from Wyckoff NJ

    Installed IE9 (64 bit version) on my Dell Inspiron 15R. When I tried to open up my home page using both the 32 bit version and the 64 bit version I encountered a number of script error messages and the home page hung up indefinitely. Task Manager indicated that the home page was not responding. Finally uninstalled IE9 and IE8 worked fine once again. I guess the old saying still holds true – "if it ain't broke, don't fix it".

  • Bob

    Is anybody having trouble with downloads while in IE9?????? Mine won't download anything!!!!

    • Victor

      Could not get mine to complete any downloads, got stuck at 99% with 1 second remaining. The files were usable (albiet the "pending" file extension), so it seems the only thing left was the rename of the file. When I rebooted and clicked "resume" on each download, all of the content was lost. Reverted back to IE8, all is fine now.

  • George

    I am running Win7 64bit- Installed IE9; as noted earlier, it would state that it had stopped working (as soon as it came up!), and then got stuck in a loop of trying to restart and then stop working. Had to use Task Manager to stop the loop. Uninstalled it and will NEVER use that POS again! I'm sticking with Firefox!

  • krusty

    same probs as othhers. not happy with ie9

  • Kathy

    Won't let me post to my facebook wall when playing FrontierVille or FarmVille—message to allow me doesn't pop up. Checked all my settings, for pop-ups and all, and Zynga couldn't help. Vista, 32-bit.

  • Guest

    Installed ie9 night before last. Crashed to blue screen during installation. On restart ie9 appeared to be working. Had two blue screen crashes after that. Last night, had a message in the bottom right corner of the screen "Windows 7, Build XXXXX,Not a valid copy of windows". Interesting, since it was a valid copy when I bought the computer from HP last May. Also, could not connect with Bluetooth to synch my Palm. Uninstalled ie9, went back to ie8, and everything works fine again.

  • Ash

    Yep, Crashing or freezing when Right clicking say on a forums page..
    How the hell Microsoft release a product like this is beyond me..
    I also HATE the way favorites are to the RIGHT of Browser..!! WHY!!!

  • Connie

    Since I installed Internet Explorer 9 my power point won't work.,

  • downloadfreak

    OMG it crashes almost every 20 secs when im using Ebay… What a crap POS microsoft released…. and the yellow download bar below is annoying as hell, every 10 secs it tells me info about add ons and other rubbish… I hate IE9…… and I really wanted to like it… back to chrome for me How is it that google was able to build a better browser in only a few years, then microsoft and their long years at it cant even make a browser that doesn't crash on simple websites… PATHETIC

  • Pat P

    Since downloading IE9 (I have Vista on my laptop) I find Icannot post on my blog, nor comment on some other blogs?

  • Pat P

    Forgot to say that the problem must be IE9 as I can still post using Safari or Google Chrome.

  • john

    bbc i player does not work with ie9 just keeps telling me my adobe flash player is out of date.no problems using firefox or google chrome

  • Nick_B

    Many of the buttons on Facebook pages, Badoo, Fubar and Google don't work…
    Worse still the control centre for CA Security Suite (which is a browser style interface) crashes all the protection s/w if you try to access it!!!!!
    Just uninstalled the iE9 and reverted to IE8….will I ever learn not to pick up new Microsoft updates until they have had chance to bed them in???!!!

  • warren

    i downioaded ie9 and when i tryed to use it it whould load up the page but not show the page and wheny you move the mouse arrow it whould pick up yhe itams on the page so i had to restor my computer back to ie8

  • zzzzisleep

    you know i am surprised that microsoft would release such a buggy release. this release crashes alot causing my explorer to stop responding. also i do not like the new download manager as it no longer has the status bar indicative of how much the download is complete. as i like to be at a distance from my monitor to save my eyesight, i now have to look closely to determine what percentage of my download is complete. Also there is a bug that causes the reported speed of the download to be heavily inaccurate as i have a netmeter bandwidth monitor and tcpview on windows vista that allows me to keep constant tabs on the traffic going in and going out on my laptop. obviously this version is very buggy and i will revert to ie 8 at least for awhile longer as it has no problems running on my system.

  • zzzzisleep

    i have downloaded and installed ie 9 on my laptop. this version of ie is buggy as it has crashed many times causing ie to not respond. even trying to kill the process the window is persistent and just hangs eventually requiring a reboot. i also do not like the download manager as it no longer has a graphical status bar. i like to be able to be able to monitor my downloads from a distance, which i can longer do. i have also noticed a glitch in the download manager as occasionally the reported download speed is incorrect. i have tcpview for vista and netmeter to monitor my bandwidth and have determined that there is a glitch in the download manager.

  • John

    I have just downloaded explorer 9 onto Vista. I can't get on the Internet at all now as the webpage will not load. It states there is a problem with this page. It searches for a possible solution but each time I press cancel it just keeps popping up! Very unhappy as explorer 8 worked great.

  • Maurice Durbin

    Lost some desktop gadgets and couldn't get to desktop gadget gallery (just hung) after installing IE9. Also some other less clearly defined problems – slow to respond, hanging etc.

    IE9/Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit/ 4GB Dell Inspiron 17R.

    System restored to pre-IE9 restorepoint. All well now running with IE8. I'll be staying with IE8 at least for the present.

    IE9 appears to be working OK on my Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit Toshiba laptop.

  • IE9sucks

    IE9 sucks.
    Installing IE9 destroyed my Win7 installation.
    It affected Live Mail also.
    Since installing IE9, both my internet browsing and Live Mail suffer the following symptoms:
    1) No font color … every font is black
    2) No background color … every background is white
    3) No background images
    4) Other enhanced things that worked in IE8 don't work … acts wierd instead
    5) EXTREMELY difficult to "simply" select an entry in address/search input box, etc. (Includes ignoring clicks to right of text we typically do to position cursor at end of text or to select that box of text to enter new search-string or address).
    6) Too many other quirks to mention.

  • Rich P

    Tried DIE9…complete waste, when will they ever get this right….seems every time they update it, it gets worst, I'll stay with Firefox, sorry.

  • Frank

    Running Win 7 Ultimate 64 bit, just installed yesterday and all updates installed successfully. Installed IE9 after reading one mag's review. BIGGGG disappointment.

    No search bar, can't get the IE8 look. Tried to comment on MS IE9 developer's site, but you have to use Live, and it would not open up. That's a great way to stop feedback, just don't let them post.

    One of the replys I read stated that no search box was in IE9. Microsoft replied with "unfortunately, it is not in IE9."

    If IE9 is the latest and greatest why would a company want to reply with "unfortunately."

    IE9 has had its 15 minutes of fame for me. I hit restore and now typing away on IE8. LOL

  • Mike

    Can't get past Internet Explorer Not responding box when I open up browser after downloading. Is a real pain – just downloaded 15 minutes ago. – Windows 7 64-bit

  • rad65

    After downloading IE 9: Running on Windows 7 64 bit. I had to unistall because if you are playing on Facebook Farmville by Zynga it will not let you send gifts to farmville friends or post on the Games page. Otherwise it looked good and ran ok.

    • Ces

      Same here:(

  • Not happy

    Installed on windows7 64 bit, I was very happy to start with until i started finding that more a more sites were failing ( I could not even re-new my Car Tax!). Gone back to IE8, and car now legal.

  • djr

    Installed IE( on Windows 7. Big problems, google map scroll not working, could not drag and drop files in explorer!, yahoo mail has issues, barclays bank website not displaying correctly. Uninstalled IE( and went back to IE8, problems remained until did system restore prior to IE9 install, so it is not only bad but doesn’t deinstall cleanly!

  • guest

    i had the beta installed ie 9 pages don't load at times then when the final version came out downloaded it again- no thanks again im back to ie 8 they have to fix a few things before i download again thats for sure fire fox here i come i believe.

  • Bonnie

    Really disappointing. It somehow messed with my netbook's wireless. Anytime I was on the net, it would keep losing signal. (My whole home is wireless – my network is fine)
    Have just removed the update, and have been good ever since. Sadly for microsoft, in the process, discovered that Firefox is much faster for me,

  • John West

    I installed Explorer 9 final release on a Windows 7 operating system yesterday. The first problem was that no video content would work. Box came up saying I needed Adobe Flash Player which I already had. I deleted the old copy and downloaded the latest copy. This did not fix the problem. I googled the problem and downloaded a fix which worked OK. Later my wife went on to the education Qld site to download her email but the site would only go to 70%. This site uses Java and I had downloaded the latest version. I got a fix for this problem from google but it didn't work. This morning when I started the computer up I was not able to view video content and got the box regards flash player again. Removed explorer and every thing got back to normal. Ex 9 was much faster loading web sites but got sick of all the problems.

  • JJJ

    Haven't been using IE8 as it wouldn't open links, tried IE9 after suggestion from friend that it was better – well it is because it will open new tabs when I click on links,
    unfortunately the new pages are empty – no address in the bar nothing on the page.
    Back to Chrome & put up with the shockwave crashes – at least I can read the rest of the page.

  • Jorge

    After installing IE9, The downloading process does not work. When I try to download a program it stops downloading at 1 second to finish.

    • Victor

      Me too, went back to IE8 and everything is fine.

    • Mendes

      I couldn't even get that far – repeated failure to download data from http://www.nomisweb.co.uk, uninstalled back to IE8 now all fine.

      Glad to hear I'm not alone.

  • Mamoon Khader

    IE9 RTM keeps crashing. I could not open gmail, Amazon, eBay… just to name a few. Some pages open washed out white with nothing displayed. Lots of crashes that forced me to uninstall it from my rig and get back to IE8. I don’t believe how Microsoft releases this product with such obvious bugs.

  • Raph

    really odd… but i am having one very strange problem with ie9. When i search forf something on google it says page blank. then when i search the same search again, it works.

    Same for when i want to change pages on google… lets say i click on the page 2 button. it shows a blank page. so I click back and then reclick on page 2, and it loads?

    EVERY time…. wierd.

  • Cab0oze

    I like how minimalistic they made it, but it is FULL of bugs! on google maps, right clicking brings up the normal context menu over googles menu. You cant post ads on kijiji because it doesn't save what you write in the 'description' box. Several websites just outright crash.
    Also, the favorites on the right hand side, with no option to move the button to the left is really annoying… hopefully I can get used to that one. I've always been an IE fan, but these problems with funcitonality are making me consider going to a different browser.
    Ive always used firefox as a backup, but with FF4, i think I may switch permanently. FF4 is really slick, right out of the box. No issues so far :)

  • huey

    everytime i tried to search a website all that cam up in the searcbar were numbers! i'm back on ie 8!

  • 180pilot

    Instant mess after download all above problems same here, stalling, freezing, blank windows, running Vista Home Premium 32 bit. Had quite a time re-installing IE8, a real mess.

  • Tom Devoe

    I installed IE9 in both beta & RC form, then the final release.
    Discovered it was reluctant to respond to single clicks, having to click twice many times.
    Also really missed the search box.
    Finally reverted back to IE8 & Firefox, all fine now, will not try it again.

  • n38s9jk

    lulz, dont download software on the first day of release even if you want to think its an instantly better upgrade. Vista>Win 7, XP>Vista, etc..

  • Henri

    Installed IE9. Security Camera's page that worked fine with IE8 crashes in IE9. I tried flushing the cache, deleting all cookies, disabling add-ons, etc. …. nothing helps. How do I roll back to IE8?

  • Jacob

    Oh dear… installed on Vista Home Premium, rebooted and now completely dead – won't even run in safe mode… :(

  • Leon Jackson

    After I installed IE9, I have been noticing that the home page is taking up to ONE MINUTE to load on start up,
    and this problem is also affecting my AOL software as well, as AOL uses the IE settings. I had no choice but to uninstall IE9, and roll back to IE8 for the time being, and all is normal once again. I intend to reinstall IE9 in the near future, and hopefully by then the remaining glitches will be resolved.

  • John Arnold

    Printing web pages as .pdf either works, does not work, or prints really slowly….or prints with garbled font.

  • Biteme

    uninstalled it already, because when I click on a link to open what I assume is a flash box, nothing happens. Why can't they get their act together and not release something until it is ready? The marketing people must be running amok.

  • Ralph

    Ie 9 I pu ton Vista-and it distorted or made unuseable the calendar and the slide viewer-screwed up the sidebar
    so i took it out wnt back to 8 and all is fine-fine with chrome and firefox too-just IE9 congrats MicrowGoof

  • Bernie

    I tried the beta, the release candidate – and had no trouble except that links refused to open from other sites, and little quirky, irksome annoyances. I went back to IE8 and all was well. Never one to leave well enough alone, I figured the final IE9 would have those bugs out so, after some resistance, I loaded it up. Almost trashed my system trying to get it out again – still had the same problems. In the end I had to use another computer to download IE9 onto a thumb drive, and re installed it on my computer. Surprisingly, everything went back together, everything works even the links – EXCEPT – my Twitter pages turn up blank. The masthead is on top but I get nothing else. I don't see any fixes yet.

  • Adjsuter Hawk

    Main problem – total freeze that lasts for one minutes when opening for first time, or opening a new window or when a pop up opens. I followed suggesttions: turned off addons, ran FixIt, clicked on "Reset" in Advanced options, Made sure all possible addons were the lastest versions, Turned off anit-virus (only for test). Nothing worked.

    I did find that once a window is open (after waiting a minute for it to unfreeze) everything works relatively fast as long as I stay in that one window.

    Worse problem – after install I find that IE9 does not show in the "Installed updates" list, so I can't uninstall it. My guess is IE9 didn't fully install, but I didn't get any error messages. I tried downloading a new IE9 install, but it won't run because it says what is already installed is a newer version. So can't uninstall to go back to IE8. I have to abandon Explorer and set another browser as default.

    Vista Professional

  • Pamela

    Thus far, all downloading IE9 has done is give me a headache. I have a paper due in less than four hours, and get anything within my schools page to work. I am ready to scream! This is ridiculous. I hate it, and I want to go back to IE8, but I'm not computer savvy and I don't know how. Someone please help me. I have windows vista.

    • Wez Greenhalgh

      tell me what version of windows you use and ill tell you how to get ie8 back

    • Jack Yan

      Pamela, I found this on the Microsoft site:
      http://windows.microsoft.com/en-AU/windows7/how-d

      One of the things it did right was to tell us how to remove this piece of junk.

  • Lily

    Just downloaded IE9 on Vista, when opening IE window set to Google homepage I get a white screen with the black text of "It Works!" in the upper left corner. That's it for the entire window below the toolbars; nothing clickable, no other text or images. I also cannot load Google by doing a search on Bing or Yahoo! & clicking the link. And I cannot type the URL into the address bar to get to Google. YouTube also does not load – same white screen. Ticked enough to go back to IE 8, just for the inconvenience.

  • D Ivancha

    I have IE9 for the last 2 weeks. Downloaded really smart and efficient however since it has slowed my pc down considerably anything through google you have to just sit and wait. PC was problem free prior to down load. Anyone any Ideas

  • Guy Vernon

    I downloaded it thinking it would run smoothly, but its definately not as good as IE8. It crashes all the time, even on my newish hp laptop. It wont let me view pictures on facebook, i cant open emails on outlook and the loading times have significantly slowed. I am really disspointed with this product, and ideas as how to make it better?

  • Prof. Filch

    I have downloaded IE9 2X. I have a Gateway 920 with Win 7 64 bit. The first time it totally messed up Windows Explorer. Nothing worked including the Control Panel and all desktop widgets.. I did a system restore and was back to where I started. I thought that it may be my firewall and antivirus. I disbled these and all running programs…both background and foreground. IE9 was again installed and the results were the same. I did the system restore again and have not tried downloading and installing IE9 again. Since I rarely use IE9 I will not be going back to it in the foreseeable future. I had high hopes and was just left disappointed.

  • Andrew

    Where do I start? I have had it so far 2 days and this is what I have experienced. Firstly lost all my bookmarked favorites. Bloody thing freezing up, then slowing down, then turning a tab in the browser into a seperate browser window and removing it from the tab list of the previous window. Automatically closed a tab I was on after using the refresh button as webpage wouldn't load (happened a few times) In one instance I had 2 tabs open and one of them wouldn't load properly so I closed it then all the information from the second tab page I closed was superimposed over the first tab. Not to mention it just seems a lot slower. The irony is the website that had advertising about IE9 saying it was optimised for that site now runs laggy and doesn't always load the pages. Piece of crap – don't reccommend downloading.

  • Alan

    Internet banking didn't work for me. Back to IE8, everything is good again.

  • the z

    i had the same problem with pages displaying or not displaying let us know when this is fixed

  • UnhappyUser

    All downloads get stuck at 99%! I am uninstalling …

  • Jfred Muggs

    Right after downloading IE 9, any video streaming (YouTube, Hulu, etc) loads to approximately 1:20 then freezes. I tried uninstalling IE 9, tried restoring my system. Whatever it did, I am unable to return it to its original state. I am running Win7 Ultimate 64 which ran like a champ until loading IE 9…..looking forward to a solution because PC Tools Registry Mechanic and all their software can't find a thing wrong.

  • Mari

    Oh my monkeys why did I download the update. Javascript is all jacked up. Ads on everyone's website seems to jump all over my page. Portions of the pages change when I flip between tabs, everything is so much slower. I hate hate hate ie9 and wish I wasn't too lazy to download/learn/use another browser!!!
    Even the sign-in below this comment window is jacked up!!!!!

  • sudhansu

    Problem 1- cannot access chat option in orkut
    Problem-2-IDM not supports video download
    Problem3-Crashes often…………
    These r the problems i observed in IE9

  • Jo Anderson

    On one computer, I cannot get IE 9 to search using Google (by default). It is set as the default search provider but when I try searching, it uses no real search engine, just by internet providers search page, which doesn't even work (never gives results). On another computer it is working as it should, so I'm not sure what the problem might be. Both computers are Windows 7, 32 bit, with the service pack installed.

  • Branislav Bozic

    Installed IE9 on Vista 32 bit and after few hours deinstalled because it's total waste of time and nothing works.
    Installed Firefox 4 and will never try and use IE9 again !

  • Debby

    If anyone is having trouble with internet explorer 9, i might be able to help. when i first downloaded it all i got was a white screen, nothing would show. If you're having the same problem then click Start and type in: "inetcpl.cpl" then go into Advanced options and under Accelerated Graphics check the box that says "use software rendering instead of GPU rendering" and then re open ie9 and it should be sorted.

  • cliff

    i put it on 4 laptops and so far no problems with anything at all including the network. as a matter of fact i'm finding that it works better then previous versions for whatever reason. it seems faster and certain bugs i seen before have dissappeared with ie9. i just hope it's permanent.

  • Ken

    Tried it for a while, no search box, no favourites on the left, no thanks. Straight back to IE8,

  • 180pilot

    Tried install from Windows update today, stalled laptop completely at stage 3 on reboot, kept shutting down then showing stage 3 screen with 0% I could not shut down except with power key. Could not reboot from safe mode, still showed stage 3 screen. Had to restore from Vista boot disk to one day earlier restore after having to run demanded check disk because of corrupted files……….. Found this issue on Microsoft knowledge base with same fix I had to use. Went to IE9 website and downloaded it from there, so far no issues with it.

  • DoggedDown

    Upgraded to IE9 tonight; lost ALL of my favorites.

  • Dennis

    My IE9 crashes everytime when I open the browser. It pop up a problem solving window, and said IE browser experiences some problem and windows shut it down. I am using Win7x64bit Ultimate Ver.

  • Sara

    I have Windows 7 32-bit OS and HP All-in-One printer. Since upgrading to IE9 my printer won't print web pages or adobe files correctly. The bottom right corner section of printout is duplicated in the top left corner section of page, over top like a messed up puzzle with duplicate pieces. Will show exactly that in print preview screen as well, no matter what settings I change.

    Installed IE 9 this morning, cannot open email or send email via SKY.Not impressed.

  • Helen

    I updated today, and when it closed to reboot, nothing came up! Just a black screen….no curser, no message NOTHING! How do I get my computer up so I can uninstall it!!!

  • Blue Boy

    I installed IE9 and it seems to work well on most sites but I tried configuring a car on the Ford website and it tells me that there is a problem with the website though it dispays properly on IE8 on my old laptop running XP.

  • SpeddenBill

    Does not work with remote applications such as Citrix 2 thumbs down

  • Al

    Hey Microsoft! Your perverse insistance on “a completely revamped user interface” is like a car manufacturer hiding the brake pedal in an exciting new place with every new model, not telling you it’s been moved, or where, and leaving you to find it anew EVERY #*&%ING TIME!!! Leave the UI alone and concentrate on making sure that the other “improvements” actually improve things. In IE9, they don’t. After the 4th website had problems with it, I dumped IE9. Good riddance to to yet another MSFT “improvement” that makes it worse.

  • Peter

    Installed IE-9 and went to do my on-line banking. Cn't access Chase Manhattan site, nor Bank of America. Chase tech support said they do NOT support IE-9. I rolled back IE-8, and I am able to access all of my accounts again. Do not install IE-9 if you do your banking on-line.

  • Guest

    How do you unistall IE9 and get back IE8 ?

    • Glenda

      open control panel, click on Programs & features. On the left side is "View Downloads". Click on it, scroll down until you find Internet Explorer 9. Right click it ans uninstall.

  • Dave T

    Woopra.com has display issues on my 64bit Win 7. Also Littlewoods.com. Here it seems to have problems with JQuery features and accordian selection menus. Hate the way that on HTTPS sites you keep getting asked about displaying unsecure content in a rather large and obtrusive message box at the bottom of the IE9 screen.
    At least IE8 only displayed a gold line at the top of it's screen!
    Cosidering downgrading to IE8. The developer menu (F12) doesn't really fix any of the problems by changing the rendering engine. Oh! I've just noticed that the "subscribe to comments" part of this page have rendering issues as well.

  • Marty

    It trashed my entire UI and the way I had it (nicely) set up. I have also last the ability to attach files in Yahoo email. WTF – didn't anyone test this version. Worst Piece of Crap that MS has yet released.

  • Tony

    Just installed , and had to system restore

  • Maria

    Installed IE9 , no progress bar, favourites on right hand side , can move to left hand side but as soon as you close it or close browser it goes back to right hand side. It disabled aero and no matter what I did couldn't get it working. Uninstalled IE9 and went back to IE8. Aero working again.

  • OldGeordie

    Using Google Mail through Sky.com – unable to delete messages from In Box and unable toaccess archived eMails!! IE9 now deleted from my system

  • Bill Gates

    it's far too slow and unresponsive compared to chrome, doesn't remember passwords like chrome or firefox, the new tabs page copied from chrome is vastly inferior, the only positive is that viewing media is a lot more reliable compared to its 2 main rivals; with the plug-ins liable to crash.

  • Stephanie

    I Keep getting the following message when I try to play they games in facebook: "Internet Explorer has modified this page to help prevent cross page scripting." The "pages" it is modifing are messages to other players needed to play the games. This sucks.

  • GerryQ

    Words fail me – this has got to be one of my worst computer experiences of all time.

    IE9 is absolutely dreadful. I won't even begin to list the plethora of faults I found following download and installation – others have documented lots and lots of issues here – enough to keep MS busy for a lifetime.

    Every time MS release something new, it's the same old story – polluted with errors and invariably worse than the previous version.

    Why on earth did they release this when they did? Is it pressure from their marketing people to "just get it out the door?"

    It'll come as no surprise to learn that I've quickly un-installed IE9 and gone back to IE8.

    My favoured browsers in this order are are Chrome, Firefox (their beta 4 version is very good, yet it's only beta – they always get things right as do Google with their Chrome browser) and finally IE8.

    What a fool I've been to think (naively) that IE 9 might just challenge Chrome and Firefox… and be actually better than IE8.

    Some people have said they will wait till all the IE9 bugs are ironed out and then go for it! Fixing all these bugs will take ages – and even then, I don't think I've got any confidence in trying again at a later date.

    My own conclusion is simple "Don't EVER use IE9"

  • webby

    installed IE9 , that was a big mistake it slowed my computer down , would n't load pages , so did a restore back to IE8 , no problems now . will not be downloading again till problems are resolved .

    installed and had to do a system restore to get my computer back. I have a stock toshiba with windows 7 ultimate 64-bit. ie9 completely destroyed my settings. thank god for system restore. I will NOT install this buggy crap again until I am certain it has been properly tested (maybe in a year?). SHAME ON YOU MICROSOFT :(

  • Stephen

    I have just uninstalled IE-9…the first time I have had to do such a thing since Windows 2 (yes that long ago). I have Vista and the service pack 2 that Microsoft says is necessary. When installed IE-9 would just not connect to ANY internet page, even though the diagnostic pack said the connection was fine.

    So I am now back to FireFox, at least that works ;)

  • Reece

    Have just checked one of my websites in IE9, which only displays properly in compatibility mode, even though it works fine in IE8, Firefox, Chrome etc.

    Once again, IE is proving to be an utter pain in the arse!

  • Howard

    Installed IE9 on PC on Windows 7 SP1. Terrible!. Opening intial home page, or indeed any home page I set, would show a blank screen with the working cursor in the top tab for nearly a minute before page loaded. After that everything opened as normal. This occurred every time I closed and reopened IE. Tried all the usual options in Advanced Settings… no difference. Reverted to IE8, everything back to normal. Now Windows Update is telling me I have one important update to install, IE9… no thanks. Thankfully I have updates set to ask first!

    I have and use all 3 browsers. IE, Firefox, Google Chrome, but IE9 is now my default browser and i have no problems except all the "Live Scoring" from Cbssports.com (Which is the sports source i use ONLY to get scores) will not work at all. Will not load, and it tries twice but then says this "When a website causes a failure or crash, Internet Explorer attempts to restore the site. It stops after two tries to avoid an endless loop." so, i do not know how to fix that or if it is even fixable but, i would like my webpage to work. That would be nice….. Thanx for listening..

  • CJANE

    I have removed the piece of crap that they have issued on IE 9. I use my computer for work and something that would take me only 5 mins to do regularly takes 30 mins because of all the interferance from the upgrade. The program made it so difficult to navigate select pages it was almost like having a virus on my computer. I will not be upgrading the internet until they have this fixed.

  • Robert

    OMG. First, I have always exlusively used Explorer and upgraded to IE9 a couple of days ago. I hate to complain but I have had it. It is slow and sluggish and my screen crapps out a few times a day saying the conroller failed. Also search and any actions are so slooooow. I have stared using Opera and Safari and those problems don´t occur. My computer is fine and is only experiencing problems in IE9. I tried to re-install IE8 but it won´t let me because I have IE9, which is more recent. Are there any fixes? I´m affraid to delete it because it has all my favorites from the past few years all neatly organized. Its my only option to use another browser until the bugs are fixed. I mean this is horrible. Bad work, people. Just poor work. I´m so disappointed!

  • Daniel

    I downloaded IE9 and can no longer access any file attachments in Windows Mail. What gives? Iam thinking of going back to IE8. Doesn`t seem any faster and is not that reliable at present. I am running Vista Home Premium 64 bit.

  • Mark

    When clicking on a web page whole page turns grey. sometimes double clicking gets it back to white sometimes not.

  • Joolz

    I downloaded this yesterday and then spent 4 hours doing a chkdsk fix on my external hard drive! IE9 seems to work fine but it did something horrible to my Maxtor hard drive. When I went to open iTunes it told me that the file system on the disk was corrupt and unusable. I have got everything working now (hopefully) and pray that it hasn't messed anything else up. I don't seem to have lost anything yet but I am still checking things. I can only assume that it had to go in there as my favourites are stored there and did the damage in the process. Anyone else have a similar problem?

  • ozziejean@gmail.com

    Installed IE9 two days ago and had nothing but problems including previous features not being available, no ability to change search settings, pages not loading properly, screen resolution changed, buttons reloacted in strange places and hard to work out how to move them Then found that I couldn't use some previous functions in my admin of a yuku site so ended up removing it and going back to IE7 – all problems now fixed thank goodness and never again will I download one of these new updated versions until all the bugs have been removed

  • Nick Lewis

    Installed Internet explorer 9. It might be streamlined to make it run faster but its way too streamlined for me. While browsing the web on my windows vista home edition I notice some links fail to work on social media websites like twitter and facebook. Also problems with some flash products like the Map on Flickr which I still can't get to appear after 1 week of surfing. Also scrolling down a webpage is becoming very annoying as its slow with a 2-3 second lag (and no its not my internet connection).
    1 Major anoyance is that I am now forced to use the back button on the browser to go back to previous webpages, there is no small arrow for me to select what page I want to skip back too. For that I will be deleting Internet explorer 9. Thumbs down.

    With the install of IE9, It was ALL down-hill from then on, Now I have 25+ Yrs of PC tech under my belt, (Win 7 64 bit) (BOTH mind you are CR@P!) I miss XP!!! I had vista installed for all of 3 days when it came out and Reverted back to XP Pro. But Got a new Dell=Hell (now at least). In n3 months that I recieved the personaly built with dell PC, I have had to Reformat 7x and on to a 2nd HDD. MSoft, HAS LOST Their Marbles.

  • guest

    ie9 sucks so bad i cant even begin to describe it, howcome they released something that poor?
    its even got graphics flaws like buttons hovereing etc(the round backbutton is cut)
    i realy wish they had spent just a little more time…
    and no im not pro google/crome (this is where the ie9 have been ripped off btw) and firefox can go rocj the frontend programmers world, and safari, no i dont think so. i am IE and have always been, but this is just plain bad work they done. fire the dude that was in charge and the developers with him.

  • Paul L

    I installed the released version about two weeks ago. My biggest beef is that web pages are slow to load and frequently freeze. I need to close out of it and try again. I followed the Microsoft on line suggestions to correct this. They tell me that I should upgrade the video card. I just purchased my laptop in 2010 and this is not an option. They should make software that is compatible with the hardware that’s on the market. Going back to IE8.

    I found that right-clicking a download link and downloading hangs at 99 percent. If you left-click and use the annoying popup at the bottom the download will complete, but you cannot resume, you have to download it all over again.

  • Geoffrey Young

    Downloaded IE9 yesterday and very quickly discovered that it is not fit for purpose. There are too many faults to detail here but I can say that having reverted back to Firefox all is now in order. Any IE9 download site should having a very visible warning of its current failings.

    hated it, tried restoring , got worse, couldnt even open a browser , error message The ordinal 383 could not be located in the dynamic. luckily came across a site at 3am this morning that helped me get admin access in command, for the life of me cant find it now, in short ie can kiss my …
    I recall many years ago never to update updates, pity i didnt remember that last night…

  • xw1

    It takes just about 5 mins, everything is dead . Now I have to remove it immediately

  • lee

    I have clicked on download links to watch a video and it does not work.. works with internet explorer 8, but not with 9.. problems with facebook of course..

  • Brad

    Sorry to see so many problems with IE9. I put it on Vista, and noticed they included a download Manager. Great, I thought. My 200 Mb downloads go to 99% then hang. Or sometimes if I do 2 at once, the both decide to just quit at some point. No restart available, no error message. I am so sorry I got it. Back to IE8 for me (Until I have time to put Firefox on it)

  • jla

    I find the scrolling bars on the right of most boxes won't work. I have to use the up and down arrows instead — a big pain.

  • simon

    has anyone had problems shopping online with IE9?

  • BJNJ

    IE 9 64 bit was choppy. A few sites did not display properly but were OK in Safari and Firefox. Kicked IE9 off went mack to IE8 64 bit and all problems went away. BJNJ

  • sean kidd

    i have downloaded it and it was very slow and now it wont even open thats after 10 mins of use what a load of crap, now i have to get it of my system what a bloody pain in the ass

  • Susan

    Photo gallery never loads when opening in AOL. Message states, "IE has modified this page to help prevent cross-site scripting. Otherwise, screen remains blank. Disabled pop-up blocker with the same results, no pictures in AOL gallery load.

  • Jim Miller

    Only problem is that all my bookmarks disappeared and don't find a provision for bookmarking favorites.
    Certainly it is there somewhere but no luck locating. Hope I can restore back the 8.

  • chris Kilroy

    since downloading ie9 I cannot open my charts pages on tradefair.com. Keeps coming up with a problem with this page caused internet explorer to close and reopen, then the page disappears ?????

  • Mike

    There are several problems with IE9. Facebook games crash or freeze. It is not compatable with the Comcast tool bar. Not to mention several other programs that are not compatable with IE9. I will be staying with IE8 for a long time.

  • Grendel

    frequently experiencing links on webpages that once clicked, nothing happens.Facebook and Youtube, requiring me to close the program and have to reopen it. Some news sites have jumping text like CBS news, articles jump up and down a line, making it hard to read. It completely changed my email client and for a while it would not work, I had to reinstall account info, and it still wont download pictures in emails, or allow attachments to be opened. I no longer have an option to where I download things, it puts everything in the downloaded file.
    Pity really because it looks nice, but it just does not work. Nothing from Microsoft in the last 2 years has been worth a tinkers dam, after resisting for 15 years, I am going to apple.

  • Alecia

    we downloaded ie 9 last week, today is april 18/11.we have a laptop, since we downloaded ie 9 it won't sleep anymore when the lid is closed.! so far it still will sleep when i click on sleep .dont know for sure if ie 9 is the cause but it worked fine before we downloaded ie 9.also computer seems to be running hot now and we have to shut it down to cool it off . i did a virus scan and used the malicious software removal tool , there were no problems there.

  • richard

    IE 9 is a real lemon running on 32bit Vista. I ended up uninstalling this nightmare on two laptops. The third laptop is a 64-bit OS that seems to be a little better. MY SUGGESTION is DON’T install this nightmare until they fix it.

  • Winahs

    when i download any thing frozen at 99% and 1 sec remaning … still like this for hours & never changes , what can i do to complete my downloads …. ???

    • Victor

      Exactly the same thing happened to me. After rebooting, clicking resume will lose the download. I had to roll back to IE8 and everything is fine.

    • danny

      use goggle chrome.

  • D Benn

    IE9 came down this morning as a autoupdate. Problems right off the bat. Pages are loading more slowly. I logged in to my 1and1 webmail, and couldn't log out. Fix was to go into compatibility mode, at which point 1and1 asked me to login again, and then log out. Pain when had to look at several company email accounts. Then IE wouldn't let me type into the address bar. Suspect it will go downhill from here. No doubt MS will blame webdevelopers again.

  • No-GMO-Seed-Bank

    I am trying to blog in WordPress and cannot do so with IE9. It will not allow me to save any of my content and freezes constantly. I just used WordPress yesterday with IE 8 and had no issues.

  • james

    after a few minutes surfing IE9 gives the message "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage" on all webpages. I must then go to settings and reset all default explorer settings before I can obtain a browsing session again. Too many problems with IE9 still. How can I reinstall IE8 again?

    • Victor

      Can't just reinstall IE8, it won't let you. You need to back out the change from the Windows update section. Search the internet (Google, etc.) to get Microsoft's instructions on how to do it.

  • John

    After upgrading to ie9 my screen would freeze after just a few minutes. I powered off by holding in the power button and rebooted at least a dozen times but to no avail. Finally removed ie9 and went back to ie8. Seems to be working ok so far.

  • Barry Levy

    Downloaded and installed IE9.0. At first all seemed ok. I noted there did not appear to be a seperate address box and thought perhaps I needed to re-install Google – which I did. Immediately started to get threat notices whenever I attempted to access mainstream websites. ie., HuffingtonPost, NYTimes, etc. My anti Virus Program: Avast was showing presence of HTML:Iframe virus.

  • Joan

    Installed on Vista and found the "back" button did not work on sites I hadn't visited before. This meant I had to continually re-open Explorer to continue with my search. I also opted for Bing…not happy with this model ..there was no refresh button and my tabs had to be re entered. The worst problem after installing IE 9 and Bing was the loss of the "information bar" on Windows emails. This means I cannot open any images or links in emails.
    On the good side it is fast and I am not getting the "not responding " message that I got with IE 7 or the computer freezing that I got with IE 8. Only used this for a day so far….no doubt more problems will arise.

  • Graham Gardner

    you cannot use sky e mail with this version it will let you in but will not open the e mai. sky say it will work on Mozilla Firefoxl

  • Josh

    After installing my internet would not stop dropping at all. Try to turn off all programs that was connecting to the net and even then it would drop, after uninstalling IE9 all when back to normal. Win7 Pro 64-bit. Even if one of the book from my computer class states "even if you hate IE upgrade or die" i will stay with FireFox 4.0.1

  • Victor

    It wasn't really clear that I was changing my browser from IE8 to IE9 on my Vista machine, as it was disguised as just another routine Microsoft update. After IE9, all of my file downloads would hang at the end in "pending" status, and clicking "resume" would cause each download to lose all of the content. Tried to install IE8 again, told me no way, I have a later version. After consulting the Microsoft site, I learned how to back out their change. All is well again, so leave my browser alone.

  • Ray

    Using Vista, 64 bit, after installing explorer 9, occasionally computer stops working, display indicates 'limited internet connection', then I reboot and it works a couple more days. At first, I thought the modem may have had a problem, unplugged the router and modem, waited a few seconds, plugged them back in, computer worked OK, discovered later on that all I needed to do was reboot…not a modem or router problem at all. Considering uninstalling ie9.

  • Jay

    I installed it right away and had problems rigth off bat! Froze about 3 times and crashed. I spent more time restarting than surfing. Went back to IE8. Using Windows 7 64-bit.

  • njs

    My pc displayed the lovely blue screen during download! after reinstall, it ran an internet error loop and would not respond to anything but a cold shut down. I had to uninstall ie9 and will not reinstall until it is proven that it will not compromise my system! Something is not right!

  • 4bluewater

    Installed IE9. NOT impressed. Slow. Could not run add-ons that I like. Reinstalled IE8. Running Win7/64. Seems like many others here are having trouble with Win7/64.

    Microsoft are you listening?

    Sorry, just sarcasm

  • Wade

    I am having issues with Yahoo mail. It will not forward or send, also will not download from an email. Also, the to, cc and bcc box are misaligned. Outlook works fine.

  • becky

    was fine until "update" yesterday.. ever since, can't get ie to boot, just error msgs saying it stopped working (as if it ever DID work, lol). tried going to several different restore points, no luck. will search for the "backing out" directions mentioned above, and hope that works… am now at library trying to find a way out. Google chrome, here I come!

  • JTDBA

    Downloading file with IE9 has been a pain. Will not work one day then the next day it did. The download file names are no longer correct.

  • RJK

    Installed IE9 on my Windows 7 Ultimate X64, and had much the same problems as others — pages not showing up, showing up blank, or the content simply now showing up at all, even worse on facebook all games Like Pool Club are jumpy and the sound is all gergaled.
    I tried reinstalling but had the same problem, I tried disabling addons, and turning off hardware acceleration, Still same problem.
    What a shame, the new interface looks Good… But Back To IE8 I Go.
    How can Microsoft put this Internet Explorer Out When Its Got Problems Like What Were All Having.
    Im a Computer Engineer and im sick of everyone I know asking me to sort out there IE9 (Easy go back to IE8) and Wait till Micosoft get thier finger out.

  • Earl

    some graphics wont show up on games on facebook ,, went back to ie8 and works fine.

  • Gerald

    Cannot send links with Win 7 IE9 (64 bit). Outlook 2007 will not open until reboot. Links send fine with Firefox.

  • Mike R

    I have vista home premium fully updated. I’ve tried installing IE9 6 times with the same results. It doesn’t execute properly. My “help and support” program doesn’t work at all, and the home page is mostly black. Luckily I use Firefox as my browser, but the stubborn streak in me just wanted to see how IE9 looked.

  • Rose

    Lots of problems, facebook and youtube only work with compatibility mode, can't log into youtube and fanfiction.net, just keep getting redirected to the home page or an error message, clearing out cookies and cache does not work. Hard to find your way around, no option to temporarily allow pop ups from site, its either block them all or let them all come flooding in. Some links don't work even in compatibility mode. Won't let me go back to IE8. Absolute pile of crap.

  • Hershel

    My whole family is complaining at me for down loading this latest version. Lagging on almost every site we visit unable to watch videos & message & view pics on Facebook aspecially. You tube & other sites with video are hard to impossible to see. Just say's it is loading even when messaging on Facebook.

  • Robertos

    IE9 will not open pdf bank statement file on secure baking site. There are various other annoyances with it crashing then telling me it has closed and offering to find a solution – it never does:-) I also do not like the message bar at the bottom and would like to adjust the menus at the top to suit me.

  • Deb

    The sad saga continues. Yesterday I downloaded IE9, installed it, rebooted, and – like many others – when a I attempted to actually use the new browser, I received a whilte screen for my efforts. I could see the pages when I hovered over the task bar at the bottom of my screen, but when I opened the browser back up…only white screen. After researching the problem, I attempted to uninstall and could not find the application in my Programs list. A system restore from a couple of days ago (prior to the IE9 install) fixed the issue.

  • J.BATESON

    I INSTALLED INTERNET 9, IT CAUSED LOTS OF PROBLEMS. MY COMPUTER IS JUST 5mths OLD, THERE WERE NO GRAPHICS OR PICTURES, I COULD NOT GET TALKTALK COMPLETE HOMEPAGE, IT SLOWED DOWN MY COMPUTER A LOT AND I COULD NOT GET MANY SITES TO DOWNLOAD, NOT HAPPY, I`VE UNINSTALLED IT AND GONE BACK TO IE 8 AND EVERYTHING WORKS FINE AGAIN NOW!

  • lanceolata

    Can't print web pages in IE9 using Vista keeps coming up with internal or script error. Tried solutions suggested i.e. re-create the missing folder (Low folder), reset low integrity level on the Low folder and use software rendering. Uninstalled through updates and back with IE8.

  • agingskibum

    slow, outlook will no longer open, uninstalled it, outlook still won't open, I would advise staying away from this for a couple of years while they troubleshoot it. Working on trying to get outlook back, wish me luck.

  • Rolf

    I tried IE9 together with Windows 7 64-bit and got a blank white page when I tried to use internet. Have to reinstall IE 8 to use my computer. But I need IE9 to use Bank ID and log into my bank. Now I have to use my old computer . Have tried to install IE9 3 times but get same result. I use windows update and download what it says important update.

  • Guest

    IE9 really stinks. When I heard that it uses the GPU to process images and video faster I thought I'd try it out on some youtube videos. This PC (vista 64bit) worked fine before, but now almost every video has noticeable lag between the image and the sound – especially irritating when watching someone speak. Microsoft does it again! releases buggy software

  • Steve

    Downloaded IE9 twice and cannot download anything within IE9, will go back to IE8 until Microsoft fixes the downloading problems in IE9.

  • Leslie Nguyen

    IE9 is highly "unstable". After downloading and installing IE9, I ran into problems… The most obvious ones are not able to manuveur and open profile pictures/stat on certain websites, which I had no problems before with IE8. And CAN NOT closeout tabs. When I tried to close the tabs, it hangs in processing… I ended up with multiple "running-tabs" with blank screen along with the circular arrow icon running. Ultimately I had to always resort to open up task manager and "End Task" IE in order to re-open new IE window to start fresh. And I have to do this everytime…

  • s. hostetler

    pictures on email will not download after installing internet explorer 9, but speed is faster in general

  • TLC

    I REALLY regret having installed this. Worked really well….for about a week. Now, every time I go to play videos, IE freezes up. I can't play ANY video or view from Netflix. I regressed back to IE8 but my system's still messed up. Not playing video's. I've uninstalled every video/flash player and reinstalled Adboe but now Shockwave won't reinstall correctly. I'M SO TIRED OF MICROSOFT and their unreliable carp!!!!

  • overthehill

    Not a very high tech user, but downloaded last night on a Windows Vista 64 bit system and it really speeded up computer. Haven't noticed any problem yet but 'tech' at work almost had a stroke when I mentioned I had downloaded to personal computer.

  • Phil

    Nightmare with IE9. Keeps crashing and rebooting. Does not even allow Tools-Internet Options-Advanced-Reset. Restored to IE8! All ok. Any ideas?

  • Steve

    Trying to load Go To Meeting (Citrixonline) and keep getting an error message. It worked fine until I downloaded IE 9 yesterday. Do not like it. To much duplication. And no menu bar. From the "ALT" key toggling on the menue bar at top "Favorites" is not functional when trying to Delete a favorite site. The start does work however.

  • Dave

    Installed on Win7 64 bit system..
    32bit browser crashes on loading…
    64 bit version loads great .. if Sliverlight would work on 64 bit we'd have something… as is uninstalling going back to ie8. At least it works with Netflix

  • unhappy

    games are lagging badly, freezing up. word documents attached in email are not opening properly or sometimes at all. i am seriously hating this and will probably uninstall or move to firefox. i also HATE the new tool bars and set-up. i can't find the drop-down tab that used to be next to the back button (where you could see a list of recent previous pages and skip back rather than having to hit the back button 40 times…)

  • derek

    had ie9 took home page 4 to 5 min to start up went back to ie8 all is fine

  • Tom

    IE9 has severe problems! Buggy, extremely unstable! Running win 7 w/ 64 bit. Facebook private message doesn't work. Page prompts on different sites don't open. Tried calling MS and they said call Dell. This is a software problem, not a computer problem. MS said they would have to charge me!! I should send them a bill for all the complications they caused! How could they release this version if everybody is complaining about it? I went back to 8. I received un update or fix for 9, but went back to 8. I did send MS a list of all the complaints. You would think in todays economy they would want to get it right!! What is WRONG with MS's techs? You idiots, fix this freakin' problem, or scrap this piece of garbage!! WHAT ARE YOU DOING?

  • Tim

    Latest Adobe Flash will not work with IE 9. Works fine with IE 8 and other search engines.

    • terry

      Thats the problem I am having! It is driving me crazy

  • Jamie M.

    I had no problem downloading and installing IE9. My windows update notified me of the new program and I installed it. However, I am having a problem with my taskbar disappearing. It seems to happen when I open Microsoft Word. Then the taskbar completely disappears and I can only get it back by restarting my laptop.

  • guest

    Webpages are quitting and reloading repeatedly. proxibid will not load auctions. i'm going to try to return to old IE.

  • Ahamkara222

    I can't view Photos on Facebook anymore. I can click on a album link, and it shows all the photos in a group, but it won't open the on-page window to view individual photos. I'm not gonna accept these issues since 8 worked just fine, so I'm reinstalling it. Goodbye IE9, better luck next time, when you're compatibility is a little more adiquate.

  • Phil

    Its junk

  • DavidR

    ! IT’S TERRIBLE! I have to wait several minutes before it connects and I can't go back to ie 8. It rendered my pc useless. I’ll have to install Firefox.

  • f18man

    http://www.usc.edu doesn't work. Pop-up says switching to compatibility view — then nothing but a blank white page displays. Rolled back to IE8 and all is well. Firefox is OK too. Shame on Microsoft for releasing IE9 without adequate testing!

  • Bill

    Installed IE9 the other day, It wasn't running for more than hour when I noticed my first of two problems.
    I work with online calendars, make reservations, update, delete, etc , The Interactive calendars pages that I work with were displayed in post script.- txt only IE9.
    The second was a problem with Excel 2010, It seems some of my table entries went missing. I uninstalled IE 9 and everything went back to normal, or close to normal, I had been experiencing blotchy black pages running IE8. That's why I installed IE 9 – possible fix – it seemed to resolve the blotchy black page problem.

  • Fiona

    Was prompted to download only yesteray 29th april.
    Problems on Facebook when trying to look at links to video clips on you tube as I get a blank square of 3 4 or 5 inches and nothing. Links to webpages on other websites seem okay

  • KarlP

    Looks good, but does not work right. Immediately after download my hibernate feature on my W7 machine stopped working (laptop now cannot get out of hibernate). I also feel that IE9 keeps doing something even after the page is loaded making it (and my PC) seem sluggish. BIG difference when I use Chrome (which is what I'm using to type this right now). Must say I've always been a MS (and hence IE) user and fan, but this makes me very uncomfortable.

  • dallas dream realty

    Just adding to the complaints. My website is missing phone, pics, headings, etc…..Dallas Dream Realty. I uploaded this piece of crap when it was a beta and it sucked so bad I went back to eight. However Microcrap has been shooting it out that it' ready and I thought I would give it a shot. What a waste of time.

  • Vince Scott

    After installing IE9 I ended up rebuilding my system from an Acronis True Image backup.

    I am running Windows Vista Business (32 bit) and Office 2007 Professional (with Adobe).

    The problem happened when I tired to open e-mails (most recent being a NewEgg order acknowledgement). Or when I tried to go to the "trust center".

    What I would first see is: "Microsoft Office Outlook has stopped working".

    Followed by: "A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available."

    Next Outlook 2007would close and then restart. No evidence it ever contacted Microsoft for a solution

    I went to Answers.Microsoft.COM and was very disappointed with the lack of professionalism of the “Microsoft person”. The Microsoft individual seemed to be a pedant. He didn’t seem to care so much about the problem but the precision of the language used to describe the problem.

  • Vince Scott

    I likely wasted twenty hours before I had everything rebuilt. Initially I didn’t suspect the problem was related to IE9. My first thoughts were that perhaps I had a corrupt Outlook PST file. So, I created a new PST file, moved my 40,000 saved e-mails to the new one only to see the problem existed with the new PST file.

    Then I wondered if I had a bad Outlook add-in. Especially when I could not go to the Outlook Trust Center (where Outlook add-ins are managed).

    May me wonder if one of my Outlook add-ins was malware. So, I did a complete scan of the system with Norton Internet Security 2011. No malware detected.

    This is when I went to Answers.Microsoft.COM where others who had had upgraded to IE9 and had experienced the same problem with Vista and Outlook 2007. The alarming thing was that one lad reported that uninstalling IE9 did NOT resolve the problem with Outlook 2007.

    And that is why I elected to restore my system from an ATI backup. I am back on IE8. And plan on staying that way for an indefinite period of time.

    I am real disappointed in Microsoft’s lack of a meaningful response.

    • Vince Scott

      I am real disappointed in Microsoft’s lack of a meaningful response.

      In closing, I would like to direct the following Paul Theroux quote to the Microsoft pedant at Answers.Microsoft.COM: “Like all pedants, at heart he was just being stubborn and obstructive.”

  • WadeC

    IE9 sucks about as bad, if not worse than Microsoft Vista. IE9 is too slow and it freezes often. I just reverted back to IE7. Man, Microsoft Corp has really sacrificed quality for its eagerness to distribute its products BEFORE all of the bugs are worked out. Fire the decision makers who put IE9 out on the street!

  • Neil

    the go back to previous page does not always work.i like to keep my text to larger via page then text size but it keeps going back to normal.apart from that its great.

  • Bex

    Awful, lost all Windows Vista display settings, could on view in classic mode, made everything extremely slow and sluggish, did immediate system restore. Back to IE8!!

  • greg

    Didn't work from the start…tried reloading and I still get the same problem. Web page won't load. Then it asks if I want to recover the page, click Recover and then it tries to diagnose the problem…. And it keeps running a loop. This really sucks!

  • Neil

    just to clear one of the points i put in my previous post,( re- going back to previous page) i have since found out this has nothing to do with ie9, its to do with google toolbar and the instant search and browse feature.

  • DeWitt

    I installed IE9 about a week ago. Right from the start there were problems. I have a Vista system running on a AMD dual core 64 bit processor. I found that web sites did not load properly and when I clicked on links, the browser would not open the link. I had a terrible time trying to pay some bills online because of the issues. My wife had it crash several times and my daughter had the same issues. I backed it out and went back to IE8. That resolved all of the problems. On top of everything else, it was not anywhere near as fast as MS claims. They have some serious issues with this browser and I suspect that there is a lot of compatability issues with web sites as well. I would hold off on using this until they fix the problems.

  • LVHphotography

    horrible explorer 9 I never liked it but it came with the pc and I didnt wan t to download more clutter so I ve used it but now it doesnt allow me to use facebook and it switches immediatelly to home page. this happens with other sites too. I m going to get rid of it

  • kylie

    this sux, try opening photos in fb, and the cursor does its little "thinking" thing go to the bottom of the page and it wont load extra content, i just clicked page 2 on this site and it says loading comments but nothing is happening. i hate it. me and my partner use different browsers so we have our own customized settings, he uses mozilla and never has a problem, internet explorer sux!

  • Michel

    Bad update… After installing IE9 I couldn't access centris.ca (site for real estate). In fact, I could access but the site was missing lot of functions. Everything was ok with my desktop and IE8 under XP. I tried several rebooting but no fix. Fortunately after using uninstall my good IE8 was back and fully functionnal.

  • R Rabb

    I find ie 9 "Most popular sites" hopelessy confusing. I like Opera much better though it has draw backs also. I use IE9 less than I did IE8

  • George

    IE9 has been loaded and for the most part it works fine. The poblem I have is that pages that I print are vertically elongated. Pages that used to print on a single page now print on two. The same pages print as they used to if I use Mozilla. I have changed the "Page Setup" margins but still get two pages with less printed on the second page.

  • Donald

    IE 9 keeps crashing constantly when I click on any link. I get a message that says "your internet browser has stopped working"

  • Thorvald Romsloe

    Fast is now beautiful with Explorer 9; well, not quite if you want to use Google and don’t care if your PC freezes up. I’m now back to the Explorer 8

  • Mark

    SInce downloading IE9, it seems everything is slower and it wants to "refresh" a lot, and sometimes when it does, it takes me back several pages. Personally, I don't like it. Also, when you open new tabs, the others stay so dark it's difficult to read them when they have the dark grey background and the black print. All said, it could be better and more user friendly.

  • rkmcbrair

    I had to uninstall it immediately as it only reported program errors and made it impossible for me to browse at all. I never was able to get it to run at all. Of course, now, I'm being asked to reinstall it every time I start up my computer. Annoying.

  • matt

    I didnt even get to use it. I have windows 7 32-bit. I downloaded EI 9 and didnt even get to try it. It immediatly crashed and I had to revert back to IE8. I tried 3 times but the system kept crashing. It's a shame because it my favorite browser. Please fix this so I dont have to switch to firefox. Also, please make it compatible with XP if you can.

  • James

    i downloaded internet explorer 9 on my laptop now i cant do anything you people need to fix that first of all

  • jutta

    i need a gun to fix my pc. updated the ie9 now i have permission bars, and, every three min. it tells me that there was a problem and it is shutting down. should have bought a mac???????? thanks microsoft for being non-responsive as always

    FB links will not work from the from the picture. Have to click on the link instead…

  • Steve

    Pathetic, when will they get their act together, downloaded ie9 on two computers both either crashed or took an age to load- so slow 5 mins and then blank screen- or other times normal speed. Lay out not good, a very backward step the kind of progress made on Vista after XP,- wake up Microsoft.
    Now bac k to IE 8.

    Keeps crashing when using Facebook and playing Farmville-very frustrating

    Dowloaded IE9 today on Vista and uninstalled a couple of hours later. I wasn't too fond of the changes, altho sure I would have gotten used to them in a few days. But my computer ran so slow and every site I went to crashed, I couldn't wait to get back to 8. I will stay with 8 until I get a new computer when hopefully 9 will run well.

  • Roy

    Windows update automatically installed internet explorer 9 on our desktop. My wife tried to open Windows e-mail after the screen read 100% complete. The computer shut down and I haven't been able to view the desktop since. Hence, I have no control over the start button or any programs. I only get a blank screen and no computer response. Can't even reset to an earlier reset point. HELP!!!

    I "upgraded" to IE9 on Windows 7 64bit, and as soon as I tried to open it after the computer had restarted and IE9 had finished installing, it said "Internet Explorer cannot open the webpage" and kept checking for solutions to problems, which it never found. I tried again and again to open IE9 and it never worked. I've had to resort to using Google Chrome, and I am going to downgrade IE9 to IE8.

  • Hedger

    IE9? Rubbish!
    Windows Mail affected, can't see the attachment icon, header/subject fonts changed, no 'yellow bar' to ask if you want to view images, no easy way to save attachments.
    As for IE9 as a browser, it's horrible. Awkward to use, and can't see any reason (or benefits) of changing it.
    Wish I hadn't – would like to revert to IE8 and get back to where I was but not sure how to do it.

  • karenj

    since installing IE9, I can no longer read xml files. What gives?

  • Aidan the MCP

    Takes forever to open, doesn't manage to load Google (my homepage) and after a while it "closes and reopens the current tab" but then continues to fail loading.
    And I can't close it properly and when I tried to end the process the first time it said that access was denied…
    I'm so glad I have Firefox on my laptop.
    I suppose it could be that I have Vista though that it has problems, because we all know how… uncooperative… Vista is.
    Boo IE9 sucks!

    I installed IE9 tonight and immediately found that any websites with text will not display properly without constant refreshing. It's as if the pages are not fully loading. It's like extreme lag – like you used to get in the old days when your computer or Internet connection couldn't process things quick enough. ( I'm using Win 7 with a fast processor and 4Gb RAM). IE8 that I was using previously displayed fine!

    I have Vista and since I downloaded this POS program from Microsoft my machine has crashed 5 times in the last week and a half. It regularly locks up with no warning or explanation as to why it did. I have gotten the "blue screen" twice, and it took me hours to get my machine going again. I never had these issues until I downloaded this software. I want IE8 back! Does anyone know how to delete IE9 and re-install IE8? My advice to anyone thinking about downloading this pathetic excuse of software is, DON`T DO IT!!!!

  • David

    Very user unfriendly. If you open one site, then you cannot easlly open a new webpage into a new window. Must use Alt + Ent to open new window witout losing the first or ealier windows/pages. Also, cannot exit the last/final website without losing the entire connection to Explorer.

    I have had nothing but trouble.Its a pain in the ass.Nothing loads quickly,when you open a new tab everything stops while it has a think,its driving me insane.I hate it,I want the old version back..How can I do that.Please help,I am going to smash this bloody computer soon.Its a nightmare.So much for fast internet exploring its slower and far more annoying.

  • Tom Korey

    Downloaded IE 9 on HP Vista Premium on my HP desktop. All went well until I attempted to use two financial organizations. On Bank of America, I could not get beyond the User ID. When attempting to access the screen to input my Password, it froze at that point. I could however back out to other non-financial sites. BOA tech staff tells me their systems did not yet accept IE9. This experience was at the end of April, 2011. The same was true when I tried it on approx. May 13.

    Then, on May 14, I attempted to download a PDF from American Express after successfully signing into the site. I could not get it; it started to download, but it stopped after every attempt. American Express tech staff believes it is probably IE9 problems since I have had problems with them and BOA.

    I am glad I did not download IE9 onto my laptop.

  • Bird

    Ie9 crash to much for me. I wonder why microsoft don't fix ie9 from crashing.

    I downloaded it and notice problems with facebook right away. could not click on any of the tabs where the "status" is, could not view pictures without holding shift down and clicking on them to be opened on a separate window, etc. Please let me know if there are any settings that could fix these issues. Otherwise, I'm just going to go back to IE8 like I already did once.

    Thanks.

  • lifeleader

    Will not download many website pages. Usually happens when I'm on a site trying to purchase something, or log in to a secure area. When I click "next" or "OK" to go to the next step, it just keeps reloading the same page. Awful performance so far.

  • wow

    I am also experiencing issues, it's crashed a couple of times, yahoo mail is not working properly and overall I am dissapointed. I hope these "bugs" are worked out quickly because so far, I am dissapointed and will be reverting back to IE 8 if it's not fixed. Wow!

    I decided to try IE 9 after all it has been 60 days since release. After 3 hours of trouble shooting I have my Canon wireless MX 870 printer back and working. What a waste of time. At the end the fix was simple. unistall IE 9 and return to a prodcut that worked on my config with IE 8

  • Bills945

    Ahhhh… Accepted the upgrade of Windows and should not have. IE9 was part of that. Now having problems with my Windows 7 laptop. Was happy with things the way they were under IE8. IE9 displays are very different with no notification. Now my machine is running very slow with some websites that I could access without a problem now have overlapping verbage and photo's… These updates should come with warnings and list of potential problems before the update takes place. I keep my computer software up-to-date and use updated firewall and anti-virus protection. Now I am paying the price for their desire to send out software that is in reality a Beta version. Will attempt to go back to IE8!! Very Angry!!!

    Yes.  Go to “Internet Options,” then “Advanced,” then check the box that says Use software rendering instead of GPU rendering, then click Apply.  Then restart.   The ads should now stop flashing and popping up in crazy places and should show up on the right-hand side as in IE 8.

    Remove it and go back to IE8, this is a awful upgrade, it should not have been released unless completley capable of being layed over IE8 without all the flash issues and so on, it reminds me of the windows7 mobile for phones… again been released and no support for flash ! Dont these people talk to each other !

      I agree. It’s AWFUL. My Outlook refuses to work now, and the browser is slower than dial-up.  Plus, the progress bar is gone–hello, Microsoft? Those of us on satellite valued the bar; some of us rural folks can’t get DSL or other high-speed. Plus, the frequent-use links on the top bar are gone with no obvious way to replace them. What’s with this? Was the old one really broken?

    Since downloading IE 9 there is a serious problem with pop-up and additional window ads that open continuallly blinking and not being able to see it or shut it down with an X on a corner.  Same is true when going to a site ie: straight talk and clicking on a link to see phone details,  The pop up window for it just keeps blinking and is not viewable.  This was just an example but this is  happening on  many sites.  Very annoying.  Please send a fix for this qluickly or within two days I will remove IE 9 and go back to the older version.  This was put on windows ;7 if that helps you.  Additionally this is a newer computer so verly disappointed with this issue.

    After downloading IE9 when I click on a product picture on my shopping cart, the pop up image is placed so that approximately half of it is cut off at the bottom of the screen. Opening up my shopping cart using FireFox and clicking on my product pictures, the pictures pop up in the center of the screen as they did before I upgraded to IE9.
     
    I would assume that this is going to happen to customers who click on a product picture who are also running IE9. I just uninstalled IE9 and and am back to IE8 and the problem with the pictures is gone. I had been using IE8 since I got this new computer a couple of weeks ago, but I may end up going back to using Firefox which I had been using on my old computer, but then again I had also upgraded to Firefox 4.0 and both me and a friend of mine both started having several problems with it also, so we went back to the previous version also and the problems went away.

    It’s seems more and more the upgrades end up being a downgrade.

    Last night, I downloaded IE9 on my other laptop.  After it rebooted, I began to surf the web.  I liked the larger window and it did seem marginally faster.  But the litmus test for me are the college websites that I teach with.  They have internal referencing to access various menus and subportals that operate transparently on earlier versions of IE.  When I tried to access one of the internal drop down menus in one of my course websites, the computer shot off immediately with a loud CLICK.  My computer has never shut down so fast.  I tried to reboot but it didn’t work.  Tried system restore; no luck.  Kept it on a Start Up repair  diagnostic all night (very slow processing) and I woke up to a note that said “Autoload-fail” or something like that with ten lines of sector identification problems missing or failed.  It said to contact the system administrator but it wouldn’t recognize my password as I’m sure that file crapped out, too.  Basically, my laptop is now a door-stop.  Luckily, I run Google Chrome on my other laptop.  I don’t know if my insurance covers the hard drive crash; or if the geeks at Best Buy can fix this for a price less than a new laptop.  I would like to end this comment with expletives.  But better angels tell me not to.  Later, folks.

    At 7pm I updated my IE8 because Windows said it was important to get IE9. It downloaded fine and my laptop started back up with no problems however, when I opened IE9 it entered into a loop of errors. Sorry the page you are trying to load has encountered an error and IE has stopped working click below to search for a solution to your problem. From there another status message pops up saying no solution can be found with the close program button. Click it and it starts all over. Searched the forums and thought maybe I would try to dismantle my add on list but to no avail. Uninstalled and reinstalled directly from Microsoft and still the same thing. I again uninstalled it  and IE8 works but at this point I will stick with my tried and true Firefox 4.0.

    after I updated to IE9, I keep getting the search provider choice popping up every time I open it.  I have tried every option people have given to get this to stop, but nothing works.  This apparently was a problem with IE8, but I never had it until the download.  I tried to uninstall and revert to 8, but the problem persisted, so I reinstalled it.  This is really frustrating – I am an IT professional and can’t fix this issue.  I have spent hours on it.

    IE9 has jacked up my laptop.  Video and media content flashes on the upper left; pics and video content indisciminately shows up and then disappears; downloads take forever . . . NOT PLEASED.

    Going back to IE8…pages don’t load properly, there are “blocky” flashes of the page that follow me while scrolling, or just flash indiscriminately around the screen. NOT IMPRESSED.

I hope you can correct this soon. My new computer is a Toshiba laptop L655 windows 7 os with Norton internet security. I had no trouble with Explorer 8. I wish i knew how to get it back.  I hope this info helps you to iron out the new kinks. Please try to correct this. I am supprised you did not check it out better before releasing it. Windows 7 with Explorer 8 was so nice. now this….  Please develope a fix and send me one, after you make sure it will fix it.     Thank you in advance.                Robert  @      eaglesoar42@yahoo.com  6/1/2011

      Do a system restore to an earlier date before you installed IE9.  That’s how I got rid of mine a few months ago. I was wondering if I should re-install IE9 to see if the bugs were worked out, but after reading all these comments and problems, I will stay with IE8 for now.  Good luck.

    I installed IE 9 yesterday on my Sony laptop with Vista 64-bit.  Today my screen has gone completely blank three times and would not respond at all.  I’ve had to shut down with the off button and on startup I get the screen that says you didn’t shut down properly.  Well, duh!  I’m now trying to create a flyer in MS Publisher and cannot insert some picture files in the flyer.  Don’t know if this is a related problem, but I’m gooing to do a system restore to a point prior to installing IE 9.  Not happy.

    I’ve loaded and unloaded IE 9 twice. When I want to comment on Huffington Post, I can write in the comment box OK, but when I click Post Comment, it appears as ‘undefined’.  I’ve seen other posts that say the same thing, so it’s not just me. 

    So, I’m back with IE 8 which is fine but what the heck is the matter with Microsoft to put out such a lousy update after reading many of these comments?

    Wow. After installing IE9, my folders started opening in their own window (I would click on the folder in the window to open it and a whole new folder would open up as opposed to opening in the same window before IE9). This was VERY annoying as I am fond of nesting my folders 3 and 4 levels deep. Uninstalled IE9 and problem went away. Yes, I went into “Tools // Folder Options…” and tried changing the Browse Folders options, to no avail.

    I’ve been working with Firefox, and only updated to IE9 because I do tech work and wanted to see what was going on with IE9. With a glitch that significant (and many others I’m seeing below), I won’t be trying IE8 or 9 again for some time. Not Pleased.

      I am sooooo going back to IE8.  When I’m in my Surewest e-mail and try to open a received e-mail, I get a box that pops up and asks me if I’m sure I want to leave that page.  It has two choices:
      Leave this page, Stay on this page.  When I click on Stay on this page, nothing happens.  So all it will let me do is click on “leave this page” and then my screen goes white.  So right now I can’t read my incoming e-mails!!  I don’t like the look either, even after I figured out how to add some toolbars.  I wasn’t even planning on upgrading.  I thought I had clicked on something for just a regular windows update and suddenly I was installing IE9.  Yuck.

    Webpages I normally visit no longer format properly. For some sites that contain videos, the videos will not be centered on the page, as normal. The video picture will blink, where it is visible and then not, making it difficult to press play to watch the video. Also, advertisement adds will now dominate the upper left corner of the page, of the site I am visiting, as it is not formatting properly. I never had any of these problems before until downloading IE9. It’s happening on this site too!

    I have noticed that unfortunately with IE9 it appears that some users are stuck to always see the notice “Only secure content is displayed. What’s the rks?” even after ensuring that the option to display mixed content was set to enabled, not even prompt. For some reason IE9 decided it wanted to ignore the setting I chose and decided to set what it felt like instead.

    Tried IE9 on our Vista PC but had to remove it when it caused Windows Mail (NOT Windows Live) to cease working properly. I fail to see how browser software interferes with an email client but did remove IE9, reinstalled IE8 and Windows Mail works perfectly again. I DO NOT like Windows Live and feel Microsoft is forcing folks to use their preferred software regardless. Guess we’ll go to Firefox or Chrome as default browsers now.

    After downloading and installing IE9 I have noticed a very big lag in graphics when I watch my Xfinity ondamand. I watched several shows before preforming my windows update. All of the profram was crystal clear. Then following the update i went to watch a few more shows. Every show now has downgraded graphics that if in fullscreen mode are to noticable to watch. The video lags behind the voices and even skips. It is so annoying that I am looking into another browser even though I have always been a strictly IE person.

    To delete IE9 and go back to IE8 you go to control panel and click on uninstall a program and to the left you will see view installed updates. Find Internet Explorer 9 and right click then uninstall. As for the flashing adds to the left of the screen with IE9 you need to go to Adobe and download the latest version of Flash Player which is  10.3.181.26 this should resolve that issue. Hope this helps

    Installing IE9 eliminated my tool bar. It seems that the satandard windows tool bar is not compatiable with IE9.  Bing is suggested as compatable but the Bing tool bar would also not show up after installation. I chose a systme retore point to eliminate IE9 and recover the old tool bar. Why doesn’t downloading  IE9 result in an automatic update to a comaptable tool bar ?

    I accidentally installed IE9 today and after a few frustrating hours of looking for things and finding out that everything I used on a daily basis is unsupported (a favorites menu, the Windows toolbar), I did a system restore to get rid of it. If you try to uninstall this sucker (and it’s retarded cousin, Silverlight) you’re in trouble, since the Control Panel doesn’t seem to list IE9 as an uninstallible program. What really ticked me off was trying to schedule my mortgage payment with Bank of America. The calendar function doesn’t work and there doesn’t seem to be a way to get the pop-up window to come up, even after disabling the blocker. Instead, it simply opens up a new tab, without bringing up the calendar. Forget IE9 – it isn’t worth downloading.

    I am pretty disgusted with the way my system is running.  You click on a link and it just sits there, going to my AOL and ATT.NET emails are almost ridiculous to try and display them.  I will be typing and the next thing it has switched me over to SKYPE which I did not select.  Before you put out updates that we as users “assume” it should run properly, make sure you test it “effectively” to work out all the bugs before putting into production.  My sister is a test programmer for a company that test programs before going into production, maybe you should hire her!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I installed IE9 a few days ago, and I’ve had all sorts of problems since. Biggest problem is that IE locks up when I click on a link; that’s happened over and over the past few days. I’ve also had windows close on me automatically, that’s happened a half a dozen times. I’m sure Microsoft would say these problems are unrelated to IE9, but I’m telling you that these problems only started when I downloaded it; it’s either something in the program, or something that was corrupted during the download.

    I installed ie9 as an automatic update a months back and after a couple or so noticed that certain videos and weblinks didn’t display anymore and there seemed to be no way I could get the pc to recognise these after ie9.

    Yet the same things did still display in firefox. As for the speed thing with ie9, I can’t say I noticed any difference except that adverts might have displayed more quickly but who wants to look at them anyway? To cut a long story short I unistalled it and everything appears to have gone back to normal – however every now and then I get the microsoft updates nagging me to install ie9 again. So called upgrade … downgrade in my opinion,… I remember the days when dial up display as quickly as these advert heavy iexx of 2011 do now. Can I go back to ie 3 please Mr Gates?

    I have just started using IE9 and I hate it so far. My scrollbar is missing and whenever I try to download a document it crashes (and restarts) my IE. The 3 buttons (home, favs and settings) are a waste of space. How often are those used if you already have a favourite bar? Nonsense.

    I have had numerous problems since downloading Exp 9.  I will be working on a website and it will just stop.  I get the message that the site is not responding and then the message that windows is looking into it and then sometimes the site comes back and sometimes it doesn’t.   Then i have to use task manager         to get ouy of the situation.

    A big problem that I’m not sure is a security threat or vulnerability is sometimes IE 9.0 crashes and when it tries to restore itself, it wipes out all of my cached saved user IDs and passwords.  I’ve also noticed the saved cached user IDs and passwords get wiped out randomly without IE 9.0 crashing.  This has happened since I first started using IE 9.0 beta and it continues today.  Microsoft is getting lazy for them not to fix something that I would deem a serious security gaping hole like this.

    I am sick to death of seeing the messages about “this page has been amended to prevent cross-scripting” and the one about disabling add-ons (when the only option you get is to ENABLE them!!!  It happens virtually every time I go from one web page to another – it’s beyond a joke now, and Explorer 9 really should have thought more about this.  It’s actually making browsing the net less inviting than on previous occasions.
    Since it’s been downloaded I noticed several of my notification area icons disappear and I have to log out and log back onto the computer and reset everything!!  Sites open up that I haven’t asked for – one example was only last night, when I was trying to open pages on The Sun website and every single time was being transferred over to Twitter – which I’m NOT registered with!!!  And to top it all, the pages I AM working on suddenly close down for no reason whatsoever!!  
    Explorer 9 has provided NO information on how to stop these messages or, indeed, what they are supposed to mean for those people who are not as au fait as others when it comes to computer terminology!! 
    For heaven’s sake, please sort out your problems, IE9, you’re losing customers like we’re losing our web pages!!

    • Ann

      I agree–can we reverse IE9 to IE8?  This is a disaster–I didn’t know what was happening to my computer last night and I was up until 4a.m. trying to figure it out and just gave up.  Now, having just logged on, I understand what happened:  it is the new IE9 that was causing the problems.  First of all, the page jumps around when scrolling–no smooth ride anymore.  The font size seems to have increased to the point where the page overlaps the screen somewhat.  It’s annoying to have to always be adjusting the right/left margin!  Then the IE icon at the bottom of the page disappeared so now I have to go into Start and click on IE to get into the program.  When the page does appear, it is stuck up at the top and I have to bring it down to cover the screen.  IE9 has also moved the ‘Favourites’ to the right with an icon, which I don’t like.  These are a few of the main aggravating problems encountered so far.  In conclusion, I want out of this program.  IMHO, this newest version wasn’t launched to improve the IE program, but done for the sake of change only. Time to call Nerds for help!

    Advertisements and pop-ups load incorrectly, preventing me from closing them.  They interefere with the content of the webpage, and there’s really nothing that can be done about it, as far as I can tell.  Videos also don’t work properly; they flash and freeze and get stuck in the upper left hand corner.

  • GrimeyM

    Since installing IE9, using Windows 7 I got small and large intermittent right-angled black triangles all over all internet pages and particularly on Hotmail.  I uninstalled IE9 via the Control Panel and IE8 is automatically left working – and my internet pages are now free of these horrible triangles. I do not use Silverlight simply because it takes over email sends and it is impossible to add attachments to emails. What is wrong with Microsoft that they cannot fix these problems ?

    • GrimeyM

      I think I have found the answer to my own (above) problem !!!
      If anyone cares – I have just downloaded JAVA script and it has killed off the black triangles.

    When trying to move from (for instance) my mail to a website, I’ll get a pop up box that says explorer has shut down.  A box at the bottom of page will come up to say there’s a problem with the web page.  If I’m persistent, I’ll eventually get where I want to go.  This happens randomly, but often.  And it’s most annoying.  What is the problem?  I was having problems with IE * doing the same thing, but I was on Vista then.  I had hoped that when I switched to Win7 and then to IE 9 (when I continued to have the same problems with IE8) that it would solve the problem.  It has not and I’m annoyed with it all.

    ie9 freezes all the time! on any site. so much for claimed ‘speed’. sometimes it unfreezes eventually or if it doesnt i have to hard shut it down and resart it. then if it restarts it sometimes even forgets the session so i cant resume so i have LOST EVERYTHING!!! other times it ‘resumes’ only to open about 20 separate blank pages ASWELL as the session tabs so i then have to manually shut down all these blank pages to get to my original session? memory and speed is affected by this of course. my 4gb 64 bit amd cpu winvista pc it seems wasnt designed for that loading no matter how much memory is installed, so, wtf?? typing text in boxes is often super slow and it wont even buffer. copying text from ie9 into text app, say notepad, often results in HUGE spaces and line breaks. again, wtf? i have to manually delete the line feeds to be able to read anything and this is TEDIOUS! where do all these line feeds come from? they dont show on the web page!? and where is the preview tab page that showed me all pages/tabs i had open on ONE rather convenient preview page??? i’m stuick with it and so far i am very unimpressed, these bugs have remained in spite of recent updates and we are nearly in november 2011 now. all these things i moan about were not an issue in ie8 and i can admit ie8 wasnt perfect but it worked better than that but anyway this really doesnt feel like an upgrade for me. far from it!

      Since I installed IE9, my Google Chrome has stopped working, When I type any address in address bar, there is nothing, its all blank – white screen. No response at all.

    why can’t you open links and favourites in smaller windows?

  • Spaul13

    I’ve installed it on my netbook a few times and had to revert back to IE8 the scroll bar, forward and back, close min and max buttons are gone its just sucks, don’t install till these and other issues are resolved. 

  • Jeff

    Whatever the problem – Microsoft are having trouble with IE9 – so let them sort it!!  I loaded it three times and had most of the problems many of you quote, especially the ‘freezing’.  So for now – Microsoft, it’s up to you!!

  • Dawg

    MIcrosoft did it to their users again.  Left off some very good feature of IE8 off IE9.  Just wait till they force us to go to Windows 8 which is just a smart phone on the computer.  I will probably give up Microsoft and go to Apple then.

  • Srickett

    I’ve been using IE9 since its release and I’m running windows 7 x64 bit and I never had a problem until a couple of weeks ago when it refused to load then when it did it was lagging I have had to switch to firefox which works perfectly and faster which seems a shame as I prefer IE is there no solution as to how to resolve this matter?

  • Larry Kimura

    I’m not sure if everyone is still having problems with IE9 but I have finally reach a point of disgust with IE9.  As of today (Nov 7) my IE speed has degraded dramtically when it works, unable to connect to many/most websites, blank pages, freezes, seems to have an issue with ieframe.dll.  It’s such a shame that I have to go back to my 10+ year old XP machine to get what I need.  I bought a brand new PC with windows 7 to hopefully avoid problems – wrong!!  I’m not IT techy so now I have to hire help to get this resolved.  Microsoft is getting to be a swear word in this house!!!!!!

What is going on?

  • Robert Miller

    I was running IE9 but it made my computer freeze, and I just bought my new computer just six mo ago. I was not happy. When I went to NFL Patriots home page it would not bring it up right. It starting to effect other things also, like my mail. So I got ahold of Dell Tech Support and they put in IE8. Its running just fine now. Oh by the way IE9 came with my new computer.

  • Ray Gamble

    Since I installed internet Explorer 9 I can no longer play my TigerWoodsPGATourOnline game.  I joined in 2010 and resigned up again for 2011.  I went on to play last Tuesday(11/15/11) at 10pm.  I brought up the site and signed on with no problem.  I then clicked on the play game mode and that is when the problem started.  When I click on to play all that comes on since then is “The content was stopped because a fatal contact error has been detected.” I have talked to EA sports online and on the phone but I still am not able to play.  We tried all kinds of things but I still can not play.  I wonder if you can help me.  I am not very computer literate but I follow directs well. I wonder if you can help me.

  • Dillydee8930

    ever since i downloaded 9  i got the bsod, and computer freezing! i finally uninstalled 9 and it went back to ie-8 and i noticed i dont get a message that raidxper has stopped working……………so annoying! computer runs great now that i have ie-8 back :)

  • Katherine

    IE9 caused the same problem on my computer as IE8 – after the download my computer screen would go blank. It owuld just stop running, and then start again. this was continual. I uninstalled it and now I can’t use my recovery program. I click on it and nothing happens. Great. Thanks alot.

  • kelli

    I just upgraded to IE9 and now my emails take 35 seconds to send; my automatic address book does not come up when I enter a name in the email box or bcc box thus making it impossible to forward emails to others.  I have to either know the address or go to my contacts to get it individually.  I can’t find a way online to fix either of these problems.  Everything is much slower than IE8 as well.  I tried to uninstall it but my computer doesn’t show the data that the instructions to uninstall give….so next is probably call some computer geek and pay $85 to get them to fix this mess.  Very annoying! 

  • Jewelstoyou

    After the auto update to IE9 I have a blank web page with no way to repair or remove to reinstall the defective program.  I love IE and now I have 9. nothing ??????

  • An9gel06

    Starman07:  11/23/2011. Am really, REALLY dissapointed in IE9.  You are talking about Beta IE 10!!! and still have not fixed all the complaints that people have put out.  Get with it, friends.  Microsft fans are really upset with IE9.  Do something. Thanks.

    • Mike Venice

      I’m amazed at how imputed magazines and those beholding to Microsoft have drunk the Kool-Aid on IE9 when users justifiably trash the awful thing. It’s become the acid test for which “expert” review to trust, which should never be believed again. All these complaints? I agree! And more!

    • Sheba_jd

      I agree. I’m thinking of downgrading back to IE 8, if that’s even possible. I am constantly getting the “IE has stopped working” message when doing simple things like clicking a link, or navigating to another screen or tab. I can’t even count the number of times it’s had to close and recover a web page. That’s the only thing I do like about it…it does go back to the same screen you were on, but it isn’t reliable in any other way.

  • Joneschristopher

    i download ie9 but everytime there is a problem installimg it therefore it never installs

  • Richard Tanner

    My screen keeps freezing up, then goes black and comes back.  If I click anything on the page when it is frozen then I have to hard boot my computer because the screen completely freezes.  I am on Windows 7.

  • Keilpeebles

    I downloaded IE 9 and now it will not let me go to another web page from the address line.  How can I fix the problem?

  • Hwenta

    A fix for your problem would be to uninstall IE version 8m then uninstall version 7, reboot, then down load the newest version.  I have used that procedure several times on different computers and it always works….Henry

  • Anonymous

    I installed IE9 on a windows Vista machine that runs great.  But with IE9 installed most webpages come up with the text all garbled until I scroll to the bottom of the screen, then it all clear up, unless I scroll to the top of the screen then it’s all messed up again.  WTH?!!!  So I removed it and stayed with IE 8.0 until recently I noticed some webpages were very slow in IE 8.0 so thought maybe I should try IE9.0 one more time, guess what same problem.

    I have a desktop with an I7 processor and Win 7 and it runs IE 9 just fine,  No idea why it sucks so bad on my laptop running Vista.

  • Kenkr

    can”t install IE9 very poor support

  • http://twitter.com/rintelen Von Rintelen

    My IE9 won’t download anything since the last windows update. It does not show the speed of the download. But just sits there doing nothing, until it fails. Meanwhile on Chrome my download speed goes down until it is interrupted. It starts at around 5 MB/s and goes to 100 b/s then stops and displays interrupted. I’ve reinstalled things. Cleaned the computer. Tried every thing but no luck. I think Windows 7 is the cause as my XP machine on the same connection (wireless) is working fine.

    • Gambleray

      I had the same problem.  I ended up taking it to Best Buy and to the Geek Squad that is located there.  In the end they had to clear my computer completely that included Explorer 9.  Then they went back and put in Explorer 8.  It all finally worked well after that.  I could then play my few online games and do other things like usual.

    I cannot even see my damn screen due to all the ads that are out of place and randomly glitching on my screen. This never happened before I downloaded IE9, now I don’t know how ot make it go away. I can hardly ever get on the internet due to this.

    internet explorer 9 keeps closing. I tried disabling all the addons but nothing seems to help. Hope there is a solution i really like the browser.

  • Frustrated with IE 9

    I can’t complete the IE 9 installation because it keeps giving me a message that “A newer version is already installed.” I’ve tried and tried for days to get it to run and no luck so far. At this point, the only reason I want to install it is to get a freebie from my favorite Facebook game and honestly, not sure it’s even worth it then. I guess my stubbornness is more the reason than the game……

  • Gilsonchapple

    BEFORE YOU DOWNLOAD ANYTHING YOU MUST- MUST- MUST- MAKE A RESTORE POINT.
    Dont rely on automatic restore points, make an effort to do it yourself. Then you can go back to where you were if things with IE9 go wrong. Im still on 7 so that’s good enough for me!

    • Julesey1969

      I made a restore point downloaded ie9 ended up with blank browser pages when to do do the restore only to discover that the installation somehow deleted ALL my restore points, like I had never created any in the last 3 years. I had to go in to the control panel to uninstall only to discover ie9 wasn’t listed, I finally found it in the list of installed updates and was able to delete it from there. . .this is total BS, they need to fix it or pull it already

  • Gailpen

    I have downloaded IE9 twice now, and have uninstalled it twice. Contant loss of connections, pages not loading correctly, games not loading completely, pages jumping like the have jumping beans loaded into them, and the list just keeps going. I can only say one thing goodfor IE9 ad that is that it loads fast, but just as fast it crashes. This is te worst experience with Internet Explorer I have ever had and frankly it’s not worth it! These issues are just too many. My husbands laptop got a virus after downloading IE9 and it completely wiped his hard drive, and his laptop is new! I am highly disappointed in a company that I valued and I’m on the verge of using another internet connection. I have always trusted IE, but I’m starting to lose that trust now. Microsoft failed with this version of IE and claim it’s better, but they can’t be more wrong an misleading if they tried to be.

    I installed ie9 over Windows 7 recently and I noticed that now one of the websites I visit does not function properly:  one of the links seems to be disabled and instead of going to the target page, it loops back to the previous page.  other computers tested with windows 7 and ie9 don’t seem to have that problem. Possibly an odd add-on?

    Windows (put) you mean pushed out ie9  like delivering a 9 pound turd. I think adobe and microturd should have had a beta party. Flash11.ocx file causes alot of Facebook flash games to freeze . only thing that helped( slowed not fixed) for facebook games was to copy flash11.ocx file rename it to old and flash11.old.ocx and have one copy bveing the one used named flash.ocx without the 11 in the name and restart ie9 try the games hit and miss like i said not a fix. ie6 and up have a had trouble with flash problems in the data transfer when recieved  seems ie9 and flash.ocx file do not handle it correctly so any one trying to correct this problem should start with these to files( ALWAYS BACK UP) Flash11.0cx and a few ms files check event logs to find out witch one then try to reregister dll file that you find. Good Luck ive been working on this for 10 years with ie9 and adobe. Seems one hand is not helping the other for this to happen for so long seems shameful.

They arent in my ‘favorites’ as those seem to be seperate than the AOL toolbar ‘favs’. I have lots of favs over the last months which I need desperately. Can anyone tell me is this from the new IE and how do I get them back? Thanks

    I have only gotten blank pages since I first installed it on one machine in March 2011. Now I have bought a new computer, thinking: surely these guys have fixed that bug by now. Um, no. And MS’s solution to me is to format the hard drive. Nice one, guys.

    Turning off hardware acceleration, using compatibility view, and loading without add-ons make no difference.

    Why dont they test this stuff out properly instead of leaving it to us to find all the bugs. So they won some kinda race to get it done fast, yippeee! now the rest of us have to suffer the disastrous effects. I am dumping IE and getting another browser. Sod them!

    I’m unable to get to my Everest/SureWest email.   I just get a blank page with the Java symbol in the middle.   I’ve upgraded Java, but it made no difference.   UGH!   I need my e-mail!   I asked for help, but of course, the help is being sent to my email!    How do you uninstall this?   I need to do so and PRONTO!   

    Thanks!

    P.S.   I’m not happy with much of anything about the new interface, or that it downloaded on it’s own without asking first.   Maybe that was a setting I chose and is my own fault?   I’ve had to go to Google Chrome to search for how to do anything on IE9 (such as how to find my favorites to even attempt to log in to email), because IE is always too slow to do searching.  I only use IE for email, which doesn’t seem to work on Chrome.   (Oh, for a Mac OS!)

    I see lots of problems listed and many I’m also experiencing.   Will anyone answer these questions or are we just posting so someone can read later?   I hope some answers will come very soon–and hope they are posted here or we are directed as to where to look for the answers.   E-mail is not an option for me!   Thanks!

    P.S.   At least uninstall info would be helpful!

  • Fargo

    i am glad IE stopped cross scripting, now could they STFU about it ?  

  • Jo

    My toshiba laptop continously automatically downloads internet explorers 8 or 9, and each time I have to restore it back to previous date, as internet doesn’t work.  I was advised to purchase flash drive 500 megabytes at a cost of $150, to back up files & then restore.  Found that I didn’t need that at all, could restore it back anyway.  But this is very frustrating as it happens at least 3 times a week, and I have to restore again and again.
    How can I stop this automatic update? 

    • spider

  • Giovanni123456

    I still can’t get internet explorer, maybe because i have Norton 360? I’m not sure why i can’t download internet explorer? 

  • Parsi2

    Even tho IE 9 is unchecked in updates, it still automatically updates and then it won’t work.  I have to then try and find clean restore to reinstall IE 8.  I do not want IE 9….but how do I keep it from my system??

    • maladwala

      There is no need to reinstall IE8. More features were added to IE8 and they called it IE9. You can remove these features and it becomes IE8 again. Go to start sphere. In the run box, type ‘view all updates’ (without punctuation of course). When a window pops up look for internet explorer 9 in it. Right click it. Select uninstall. It will remove IE9 features. After the process, start IE. Now it’s IE8. 

      • Parsi2

        I did what you said….there is nothing that shows up for Internet explorer 9.  This makes sense if IE9 shows up, but nothing relating to it does.  Right now, IE 9 is working with no problems.  So I might as well just leave it be.

  • Britpattinajessnic

    I have Vista and got IE9 and it has been nothing but a nightmare.  It keeps shutting down and restarting my web pages, telling me there was an error at the website.  This is a problem when you are inputting work and the computer just takes you out of the website.  I think maybe I need to look into other internet access, this is just awful.

  • Ron

  • D3 R12

    Downloaded IE9 nothing but trouble with my windows mail, runnung Vista Home Premium. Open up Mail new ones come in lets you open them, fine, lets you send them, fine, but when you go to the sent items box it deletes the message from the inbox, check delete box nothing there, junk email shows 3, but again nothing there, error message cannot deete items. then tried going to communities, tells me site is having temporary problems. Final straw when closing down windows mail, then re-opening it the e-mail that have recently come in, they have been deleted. IE9 IS AN ABSOLUTE NIGHTMARE, FASTER BROWING, JOKE, MESSES UP E-MAILS DEFINITELY.

    • Joyce

      I finally had to uninstall it .

    • Geoff

      that is precisely the reason i have just searched yahoo ending up on this site … i have windows update program options down as NO TO ALL downloads and updates without checking with me first. I can see the list of Important/ Optional updates suggested. It keeps installing Exp 9 each time I shutdown and then I end up restoring back to last month. I cannot figure it out and it takes too long installing and configuring what I don’t want before me then having to restore – Nightmare Timewasting and I am worried about Exp 9 Security so I won’t use it. I also don’t like things being different as I know and am used to where everything is in Exp 8. PLEASE HELP ME AND SPIDER ANYONE WHO KNOWS HOW TO STOP IT IGNORING US AND IT’S OWN SETTTINGS NOT TO DO UPDATE!

  • Mad@9

    Wow, ridiculous, IE9 sux, had it only 3 horrible days, I just did a system restore because this beast just installed automatically and I am having all kinds of problems, as if you didn’t already know, web pages loading slowly if at all, kept checking for a solution to the problem (never found it!), some reason everytime I opened Word I get a bunch of errors popping up and I could never save anything, I had it after that, now I am just hoping that this thing doesn’t try to install again…I’m hoping that turning off Automatic Windows Updates prevents this horrible thing from infecting my pc again.

  • Jim Finnegan

    IE9 doesn’t work. I do most of my surfing now with Google Chrome because of all the compatability issues and viewing problems I experienced IE9.

    • OldGeezer141

      Google and Microsoft don’t want to work out problems of cross search, Uncheck compatibility view for google and it will look right effects GMail really bad, but google pop-up will tell you not to use compatibility view. Peter hats Paul I guess

  • Bob

    You don’t need to replace IE9 as BoA support suggested. You do have to disable some Internet Options to save encrypted pages to disc and you cannot delete temporary files. These are used for webstie tracking and the BoA site will no longer work if you do not disable these internet protections.

  • aya

    I am unable to turn on my PC after downloading IE9. It suddenly froze my PC. Do you have any advice?

  • Joe

    I had tried to install IE9 several times in my computer with Windows Vista since May 2011. Constant problems with antivirus, AOL, etc.  I remove this version and continue to work with previous version IE8.  Microsoft install it directly as a update several weeks back and I realized today, they sent the same s**** to install the IE9.  They need to come up with a better Internet Explorer.

    • spider

      go to my spider link 2days agohope this helps

  • Kathy

    IE9 installed itself on my laptop after a windows update & I have had nothing but problems since then.  Opening & reading my yahoo email is painfully slow as the system keeps freezing.  The same thing happens with Microsoft Word.  Microsoft has to change their update process, so that IE9 doesn’t install automatically until they have it fixed.  It is a nightmare!  When IE9 first came out, I voluntarily downloaded it , as it asserted that your security was safer with the update.  Well after many system crashes, I called in a computer tech who said my problems were caused by IE9, as it still had many issues.  $100 later (he uninstalled  IE9 and brought me back to IE8) mys system was working fine.  I am furious that Microsoft is irresponsible enough to automatically install a system that obviously is not ready to be released!!

    I’m going to try Spider’s suggestion of uninstalling & hope that it works for me.

    I have Windows 7 64 bit, and IE 9, for the last month or more I am unable to compose and send or reply to mail without IE screwing up and not responding while Windows searches for a solution. HaH!  Still no real answer to date. I am sick of Microsoft (have you seen Windows 8? what a joke) and Internet Explorer. My next computer will be a MAC !!!!!!

  • Chisholmsa

    My internet explorer updated automatically and it is the worst update ever. I cannot enter an address in the taskbar, every time I try, internet explorer quits. I lost all of my book marks in the update. This is extremely frustrating. I attempted to follow the directions to uninstall the update on my computer, but when I looked at the recent updates on my computer, internet explorer was not on the list. Does anybody have an ideas on what I can do? Thanks!

  • James

    Internet Explorer nine comes in an automatic update, so far. Past week I’ve had to run system restore every morning. When I get up Explorer 9 has automatically been placed on my computer, you can’t start Internet Explorer it keeps coming up Internet Explorer stopped working, I would like to know how to contact someone to get this off of automatic downloads. I believe Bill Gates should have to come to every household to fix this problem if he keeps putting corrupted files out of automatic downloads or pays an IT to come out and straighten his mess

    • Ala0691970

  • M G Slaughter

    Over a year ago, Update tried to install new version of IE9.  Got corrupted somehow.  Doesn’t show up in uninstall list, and won’t let me reinstall.  Says newer version is installed.  I have tried countless times to uninstall; can’t get rid of it, or reinstall.

    • Cyndizworld

      My computer automatically updated to IE9.  They tricked the system!!!   SO now the newest updates caused me to not be able to get any videos online..Like YOUTUBE, etc. I UNISTALLED IE9 and had to do more after.   This is how I did it.  You will have to Go to your “update history” and you will find it in there installed as an update. I will tell you exactly how below…They are Tricky huh. OKAY..back to how…. Go to START, type in WINDOWS UPDATE, then go to “view update history”, open it, then go to INSTALLED UPDATES, open it, scroll down and find “Windows Internet Explorer 9″, (*mine was as far back as 06/11!!) highlight it and then hit the UNINSTALL button above that appears after you highlight it.  Then go into your view update history again and uninstall the last update from Internet 9 using the same way you just uninstalled IE9.  I had trouble installing some updates after that.  If you do as well, Then go to MICROSOFT.COM and download their FIX IT program to help fix the problem of installing updates that happens after UNINSTALLING IE9. 
      Oh and I am working on getting rid of the IE9 installation that keeps
      showing up as an IMPORTANT UPDATE!  I had to stop my automatic updates
      so I can keep an EYE on it as to not allow the installation, since they
      are tricking the system into thinking it is an IMPORTANT UPDATE that
      will automatically update if you have elected to automatically update instead of viewing first!!
      I think I found a program to remove IE9 as an automatic update so I can go back to using the automatic update again.  I haven’t tried it yet, still in the midst of reading about it.  GOOD LUCK and I will advise you if I have succeeded in removing the IE9 as an automatic IMPORTANT UPDATE.  If someone knows how to do this, please let me know. THANK YOU.

      Try going into your Control Panel and use the Un-install program there.  I’m going to try it now.

    • Richard

      Yup. worked.  I now have IE8.  Gotta go to Control Panel, then Programs & Features and the View Installed Updates.  Scrol down til you find IE9, click on it and then Un-insall.

    • Richard

      Should have been Programs & Features and THEN View Installed Updates.  ONLY uninstall IE9!!!!

    I have nothing but problems with IE 9, it crashes constantly – it is the worst browsing experience ever. I had to download Chrome just to check my e-mail. I had to keep checking if this was the same IE 9 they have been running the TV advertisements for, even deleted it and re-downloaded it to see if that would help (it didn’t)…common Microsoft! What the heck?

    Nothing but problems since I downloaded ex9 which has cost me 2 repair charges to Microsoft at $99.00 each. Since the last repair my current problem is I can not open a number of links . When I do a search and it may be a Yahoo link it will not open… even on the MSN page I can not open some of the items they have articles on. Runs slower than then ex8. Wish I had never downloaded ex9. Not only has cost me $198 it has limited my search resources and is slow. Not willing to pay another $99 to microsoft for issues that were caused by thier product

  • LGE GODFATHER

    I will probably never look at this forum again!! But people just explain the problem ,,Nobody wonts to hear your bad day in the fact you just ramble on ! This forum is to just state the facts on the problem you are havin with IE9,, So hopefully it can be improved,,Seroiusly,,Wont ever see the remarks and somebody will remark on my statement with negativity but read it,nothing again to deal with IE9 just having to be that person!! God Bless all but really just state the problem not your life problems!! Thanks
