Windows 7: Help for My Web Browser

Help for My Web Browser

Hi guys

I have been using Internet Explorer 8 and I want to update it to version 11, but I cannot. I have been downloading this EIE11_EN-US_WOL_WIN764.EXE file, but won't run. "It says, You need Windows 7 SP1 or Server 2008 R2 SP1 to install Internet Explorer 11." What should I do to be updated in Internet Explorer? I am already missing a lot with this browser. I've been puzzled. Actually, I also have Firefox and Chrome (in their latest versions). I think Firefox is a great tool to download flash media files like .swf. And I use Chrome to use I also use Chrome in my Android for the same reason. However, I like Internet Explorer for my download manager. I've even tried Firefox in and it worked, however I really must use Chrome if I am not just to have video conferencing but screen sharing as well. I haven't tried the Firefox browser in my phone though. At the moment, I do a lot of video conferencing and screen sharing through, so Chrome is my current champion. If there would be a work-around for my Internet Explorer and can promise to deliver real time communication through it, I might switched back. For now, it is in its stand by mode in my taskbar. How can I update it? Thank you.

Hello Jesse17 , Welcome to the Forums Your system specs do not show you having SP 1 installed which make me think you do not have all of your microsoft updates. I would update my OS and in the process you will find that IE11 gets installed as well as bug fixes that you need.

Welcome to Seven Forums Jesse17. As Yard Dog mentioned, do you have SP1 installed?

Start> In search box type system information> Enter

The 2nd line will show what version you have.

I agree that you don't have Windows 7 Service Pack 1 installed. It is best to set updates on your system to be automatic. However, I would follow this guide by microsoft: Learn how to install Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1)

Which browser should I use?
In my START MENU, there are two entries for Internet Explorer. One says just Internet Explorer and the other says Internet Explorer (64-bit). My Dell is a 64-bit -- should I be using that one rather than the "plain" IE??? Thanks for your help. Windsorlady
