Interesting thread. I'm surprised that IE10 (& indeed IE11 which it should be to be safer) reset to 'Compatibility View for all sites' wouldn't work for you.
You're a brave person allowing your security to be compromised just to please one company.
I'm curious, do you have SP1 installed?

Not that the question was directed at you, I'm asking a simple question.

I always am concerned when I see people compromising their security for whatever reason.

Well, the fact of the matter is that I have no option but to please that company. It is absurd that, with their scope of action and options to create a specialized, downloadable from their site only to registered users application for viewing technical data and drawings, they elected to use a particular OS's browser (and three now "defunct" versions of it, at that, 9 being the newest! ) for the viewing of said data. Surely, a completely stand alone, non-reliant application with a custom viewer would have been a more intelligent creation on their part. The present application works off-line (it also includes some required plugins that download with the main package) and the browser is merely the interface used for the display. Beats me why they do it this way, really. Some back channel agreement with MS, or something? I don't know.

All that aside, however; the exercise here listed in this thread has unveiled a problem that existed with my installation of Windows 7, which has impeded either rolling back to IE9 or even "rolling forward" to IE11, and has been causing issues with my updates on and off all along (even after re-installing the OS on an occasion to attempt to start afresh). That it is finally being addressed and solved here is PURE GOLD!

It seems to be a buggy retail Windows 7 that I got, or it does not like my hardware set up, or something, as it has always been a trifle problematic, especially updates and the odd BSOD (about two or three times a week), which is also an issue I would one day like to go after.

As for security, I would use a different, completely up to date browser, like FF (as right now). Pity, it seems that IE9 and IE10 cannot live side by side in harmony on one system. However, I do most of my normal online browsing from Linux, anyway.

That's a pity but it looks like you are forced to at least try what you are doing. Just having IE9 installed makes a system less secure than if IE11 was installed even if it's not the default browser, however, yuo can't even get that far by the looks of it.

Have you tried a system repair or run SFC /Scannow to see if Windows can heal itself and then perhaps the help you've been getting here might work?

Yes, done both before. There is even some evidence of my usage of sfc /scannow earlier on this same thread. At the moment I do not want to try anything new or different until what is happening here already is taken to its conclusion. Thanks just the same!

I've uploaded a file - MDK2.zip - to my SkyDrive at Noel's SkyDrive
Please download and save it to your desktop.
Right-click on the saved file and select Extract all...
Save it to the default location
This should create a file MDK2.reg

Now open an Elevated Command Prompt, and run the following command

REG LOAD HKLM\COMPONENTS C:\Windows\System32\config\COMPONENTS

... You should get a 'success' message
Close the Command Prompt window

right-click on the MDK2.reg file, and select Merge
Accept the warnings, - you should then get a 'Success' message.
Close all windows, and reboot.


Run CheckSUR again, and post the new report.
