Windows 7: IE 9 Installed Successfully But MIA

18 Nov 2012   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
IE 9 Installed Successfully But MIA

I'm not sure exactly where to ask this, so I'll try here. I have installed (or so the Update History page tells me) IE 9 (Win 7 Home Ed 64-bit). The history says the installation was successful (actually, more than once). The list of Windows Features shows IE9 running. But when I click on any IE icon that I can find, I'm still getting IE 8. There is no IE in my Start Menu, the only IE files I can find in Program Files (x88) on my boot drive are version 8 (right click Properties on iexplore.exe). If IE 9 is installed and "running," where do I find it to start it up?

Is there a reboot cued for Shut Down? Check the Shut Down button in Start menu now.

If not I think I would uninstall it in Windows Updates>View Updates>Installed Updates then when it shows up again install it alone.

Other steps for Windows Update - Reset - Windows 7 Forums and
reset Windows Update components .
