IE9 Usage Explodes on Windows 7

With IE9 Beta released in mid-September and IE9 Platform Preview 6 launched the past week at the Professional Developers Conference 2010 (PDC 2010), the next major iteration of IE continues to make consistent inroads in worldwide market share.

The latest statistics offered by Internet metrics company Net Applications reveal that Internet Explorer 9 is already being used by over 0.3% of the world’s users for daily browsing.

“Last week at the Professional Developers Conference, we announced IE9 Beta has been downloaded over 10 million times since its release in the mid-September,” notes Ryan Gavin, Senior Director, Internet Explorer Business and Marketing.

“Today, with the release of Net Applications’ monthly browser share report, we’re pleased to see that in addition to 10 million downloads, 0.32% of customers worldwide and 1.46% of Windows 7 users are using Internet Explorer 9 as their daily browser.”

Windows 8.1 Professional x64

I've had pretty decent luck with 64-bit browsing, considering it's still a beta - I've been able to watch Hulu with Flash "Square" installed and 99% of the sites I vist are compatible

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit

I'm doing fine with Firefox Minefield x64 and "square" flash.
I have an irrational prejudice against IE.

Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit

I'll wait until final release of IE9. Getting it now doesn't seem worth it knowing MS's reputation of producing bugs at accelerating rate.

Oh wait...

I don't use IE9 either, it still has IE8 elements and the UI is unfinished

Random BSOD: light usage, heavy usage, gaming.
Edit: Posted this on the wrong forum! DOH. Reported as this is for Windows 8, not 7. Windows 10's message was typically IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL, suspecting a driver issue I reformatted to 8.1 which I am on now. The message I'm getting now is PFN_LIST_CORRUPT. Hardware/full build: Core i7-6700K...

This unresponsiveness quickly spreads to other open processes, rendering them frozen as well. I can still use the mouse, and...

Windows 7 random CPU usage and high physical memory usage!!!
Ok, I am literally KILLING myself over this! I installed Windows 7 64Bit over XP around a month ago and it was so good that I recommended it to my brother who was previously on XP too. We got him a copy of the 32bit version as he has only 2gb of memory, and he installed it on his machine....
