Have IE 9: Take plunge to IE 11?
OK, I've been satisfied with IE9 but I keep getting IE11 offered via Windows Updates. I guess it is time to update as some sites indicate I should upgrade. Is there any problem upgrading via Windows Updates?
Is IE11 similar to IE9 in terms of appearance and operation?
Does it take a long time to do the upgrade?
I have W7 Home and W7 Pro (two laptops).
Good Luck w/Upgrade to EI11
I am in charge of maintaining a Toshiba Satellite with Win7 x64.
When the reports started recommending to upgrade to IE11 (x64) if for nothing but security, I jumped on the bandwagon December 2013.
It has been nothing but a nightmare, an embarrassment, humbling and humiliating experience for/to me.
It is quite a sad day when MVPs sponsored by Microsoft start recommending that users switch over to either Chrome or Firefox, because there are more than just a few users that have not been successful at upgrading to IE11 (either from IE9 or IE10). What is more ironic is the fact that there is no resolution in sight, except to hope that maybe Microsoft's own IE12 will be "installable" in Microsoft's own Operating systems smoothly.
I don't want to scare you but you may wish to gloss over this "Internet Explorer 11 Windows 7 for 64 won't install; keeps failing" if your attempts start consuming more than 4 hours of your precious time. If this becomes the case for you, I strongly advise you to cut your losses and start using either Chrome or Firefox, instead. Good luck!
