I checked and that link does not offer a plug-in for IE9.

Question:
In VM, it seems you advise to use IE9 and leave the default version of IE8 from Windows 7 alone? Am I reading you correctly?
Yes, you are reading me correctly.

Anything to watch out for using IE9 in VM?
As I am not proficient in using VM I would hope another member could guide you better than me in that respect.

I would make sure my machine would be healthy, and robust enough to handle the extra requirements of running VM.

Bill2's link looks good.
I would give it a try before getting too involved with VM.

I have 4 GB of DDR2 RAM. I am going to 8 GB very soon. (I am waiting for the parcel to come.) I understand that VM can really benefit from 8 GB. So I am holding out for a bit before I go to VM until I install the other 4 GB.

Reply if you wish.

Thank you!

Oh, while I am at it. I like IE9, it is defintely cleaner and neater than IE8. IE9 looks alot like Opera or Google Chrome even more so. The downloads are more hidden now. I don't care for that. Right now, it is buggy and runs slow at times. I am told the new HTML5 could be an issue why. What I do not like is the tabs near the top are wedged to the right of the address/search bar. I do not like that especially if I have many windows open at once. I hear there are new advanced security options that have improved. It is getting high reviews. I like it, but I still like the search bar separate from the address bar like in IE8 & IE7. I like to have a reference for my searches. It is lost in IE9. Not good for me.

Okay, enough said.

Your welcome. The extra 4GB will be very useful.

No need to apologize, but it would be helpful if you took some time to fill out your System Specs.

Personally I like FF, but I keep IE8 up to date for my DW.

Where she works still runs IE6
