Windows 7: Install IE11

11 Jun 2016   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit
Install IE11

Sony Vaio VPCL117FX
Win7 64 bit SP1 Home Premium

After reinstalling Win7 64 bit through the upgrade option (without reformatting the hard drive) per Fred Langa of Windows Secrets instructions, I ended up with IE8.
I have attempted to upgrade to IE11 without success.

Hi Doru,
lookin at the specs for your comp it came with W7, why the RE-install??, or was that from W7 to W7 SP1, strange !!!.
>>>Re-install W7<<< base is IE8, (years old), unless you had updates turned OFF then the system should allready be on IE11.
