Well it did, but mainly I wasn't blown away and don't need IE9.
There are a couple of optional updates that I have installed and since uninstalled, one in particular a DIRECT2D fix that slowed down my windows response (in the graphical sense, less snappy). I expect IE9 includes one or both of these and that is the root cause. But I am not about to waste my time trying to untangle it.
Regardless, my post was with reference to system restore, not IE9.
