Microsoft has outlined some prerequisites that must be met for a successful install.

Prerequisites for installing Internet Explorer 9

I've also read that once IE9 is installed, the computer must be rebooted twice before opening IE9. I can't remember what site I read that on (might have been CNET or Maximum PC) but the extra minute or two for a second reboot shouldn't be too intrusive on anyone's busy schedule. That's how I installed IE9 on several computers and none of them has any issues. If all else fails Microsoft offers free support (Get Help Now, top right corner in above link.)

I looked up "Windows Live" (as in Live Essentials or the Live website) and the only problem mentioned has to do with "Windows Live Photo Gallery import wizard"

Disappointed in XP Mode :(
I'm disappointed in XP Mode because it refuses to run several programs which previously operated without a hitch in XP Professional. Windows Virtual PC installed without problem and, thereafter, FireFox v 3.6 and PCTools v 2010 installed, call-up and run fine. Others, e.g. Palm Pilot v 4.1,...
Anyone else kind of disappointed?
I really wish MS would've added new featured from the RC to RTM timeframe. A lot of icons are left unchanged from Vista's, plus the taskbar could've been reworked a lot.
