Just wondering if any on the forum have been using IE10?
When it came up as a Windows update, I just let it go through. I really wish I hadn't installed it.

Ever since I've be having problems with slow browsing, problems accessing websites where a login is required and constantly getting error message telling me IE10 has stopped working.

After very little help from Microsoft, I've gone back to IE9 and I no longer have the problems I was getting with IE10.

So if anyone is having problems with IE10, you might want to consider going back to IE9. To be honest, I couldn't really see any advantage to IE10 anyway.

What opererating system are you using Inchidown? Iam sure it is for windows 7 and better. I still have Vista, Im with Grumps, too many problems with IE, I also use Firfox and Google Chrome.

I used to be a fan of Internet Explorer and never liked Firefox. I then gave Chrome a go and never looked back. I can sync bookmarks, autofill and history between all my devices and there are some pretty good plugins available too.

I'm on Windows 7 64 bit.
I've tried all the main browsers and I've always come back to Internet Explorer. I just prefer the way it does things.

All of the problems I had with IE10 have gone since I reverted back to IE9, so I'm happy again.

I have the same setup as you Inchindown and updated to IE10 which I hated. Like you it kept freezing and I could do nothing, probably because IE10 is designed for Windows 8 and not for Windows 7.


I removed the update and went back to IE9 and have had no "freezing" problems since



For anyone wanting to revert back..........


Start - Control Panel - Uninstall a Program - View Installed Updates (Left hand side of box) - (Look for Internet Explorer 10) Uninstall - Reboot Computer.

The IE10 update, as downloaded by the Windows Update process, is notably flawed. There are many records of it corrupting the operating system, being unable to access the internet, or affecting the Aero screen (translucent/transparent effect).


I let this update go through on 2 of my computers and had a poor experience. I uninstalled it through the add/remove programs option, with show installed updates checked and, went back to IE9. That said, my list of favourites have since lost their associated 'favicon' (the little symbol that appears in the address bar) but, this can be rebuilt by deleting a favourite and then re-saving it again (PITA though).I operate on Win 7 64 bit and 32 bit for the machines affected. My other 2 machines run Ubuntu Linux, which has improved dramatically over the years to make it almost a viable alternative but, alas, the plug-and-play is nowhere near as 'easy' as Windows just yet!

I have the pleasure of being a web developer and can safely say that I have used Firefox as my default browser for a lot of years. Although I have all major browsers (and, as needed, some not so major ones) installed, none of them manage to compete with Firefox when it comes to the power it gives for devloping sites.

Anyway, I have IE10 insalled on my Windows7 x64bit Work Laptop and it works fine. Might be worth noting that I installed it manually on the day of release, not via Windows Update. No crashes and is by far the most standards compliant IE ever. Unfortunately, because of all the history of incompatible versions of IE there are all sorts of tweaks done to make IE work on websites which actually break the site for IE10! You can try forcing it into compatibility mode but that's no guarantee unfortunately. Mainly because the IE10 compatibility modes are different from the previou versions (comes back to that standards improvements in IE10 again).
