Windows 7: Need IE9 , IE11 nightmare for win7 64 bit

Hi very good
I usually just uninstall ie11 after all the updates are finished but that's just to simplify the process a bit because as you say there are a bunch :)

hello again!
As you said earlier" fewer errors occur if you uninstall ie11 later" , I didnt want any errors if the deadly IE11 was installed, so I avoid it like the plague:)

thank you

On a clean install I doubt it's deadly I've done it recently on 2 machines switching both to ssd's,
Usually if issues appear on a older install or factory install it's because of a preinstalled or not quite uninstalled third party security suites...,
Common ones like Mcafee or Norton for the most part are very difficult to get rid of even if installed later replacing the other,
Cheers and your very welcome :)

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Hi ThrashZone,

I did try IE11 on clean install , installed same method as I formerly installed IE9, going to Micro download IE page.
The lockups (in my first post), & when I close webpage, IE11 just sat there for a second , then closes , or locks up.
With IE9 no lockups , no errors , and when I close a webpage..BAM! , it closes.
I might be the only one that has these issues with IE11 , not sure.

Would it be safer to install IE11 from control panel/win updates to IE11 or is it exactly same as going to link in my first post?
I must need to disable or change something on IE11 to make it work as well as IE9 does for me.
Wish I knew what that tweak could be.

Take care

Usually it's flash player that's the issue
Try to disable it in manage add-ons or another BHO add-on causing the crash,
I would first use windows update for all versions your on 9 now so the next would be to go to 10 and test neither of these versions have flash player unless you install it,
11 I always thought it was built in but others say no ?

It's been a while since I've used 11 myself in win-7 it's too buggy
10 should be tested though it is way better imho

Hello ThrashZone

If I visited a site that required Flash , then with Flash Object disabled , some sites gave message that I need it installed to view correctly . I also disabled Adobe link helper in add ons , & left Flash running , still lockups using IE11. I did disable these when I had IE11 installed.

All accelerators disabled too ie: bing etc when I had IE11.

I will use win update in control panel if I do fresh install in future or want to try IE10 and hide 9 , now per your advice.

* With IE11, I went to adobe and it gave an "install now" Flash 16, it didnt say if, or what version was already installed on IE11 at that time.

Next fresh install win7, I will try IE10 , I repect your opinion and advice.
Thank you again for your help ThrashZone!
I would also like to thank AddRAM & RolandJS for help here also :)

Reinstalling IE9

Being the tech geek in my family, I've done this serveral times. I've gone the routes listed here & did successfully find a file download I saved to reinstall IE9. However, I discovered the simplest path is:
Control Panel, Programs, Programs & Features then click on View installed updates. Find the Windows Internet Explorer 11 (or 10) update. Click on it, then select Uninstall. Restart and Windows 7 will revert back to IE 8. Go through Windows Update process, only installing updates for the version of IE currently loaded before installing the next version.

Watch out for the KB's that are pushing Windows 10 or known to cause problems on W7 64 bit OS.
The above is a partial list, but these are the key. Check View installed updates to be sure they are not there. By scrolling the list, I found KB2952664 was installed even though the search box didn't find it. After uninstalling these. Run Windows Update & Hide them by right clicking on each one & selecting Hide. Some of these will reappear in future Updates even though they're hidden. MS is getting sneaky.
