18 Jan 2011   #11


Hi, Hopalong X....
Im running Windows 7 / IE 8. Is it worth downloading IE9?

IE9 is in Beta, do not try to solve a problem with a Beta that may cause additional problems. Stay with 8. It is the most up to date official release.

Your welcome
I intend to get IE9 as soon as its out of beta. I have been reading about a lot of new features.

I wasn't trying to get you to go to IE 9 just showing you what could be checked for your second question you posted.

I do prefer IE 9 and have had no problems since October with it.

As Rich pointed out the problem could just follow you.
