I guess we'll just have to wait and see what happens when more users install it thru Windows Update!!

After installing update IE9 opened but would not connect - except for error message. I tried another restart to no avail. I'm happy to wait until issue is fully resolved.

Installed Platform Update for Windows 7 x64-Edition (KB2670838), both IE9 and FF19.0 connect and are running.

I was having problems with YouTube on IE9 (add-on related), but not anymore.

I am wondering if you have a toolbar installed if that is the culprit

There is a setting on the about page for IE10 to install new versions automatically, and MS decided to opt new users in. If you don't want that setting uncheck it.

I installed the KB and had no problems on 2 computer using I.E.9 and Foxfire. I'm installing I.E. 10 on my older computer as I type to give it a try.
