    It works fine on my PC, except for one irritation.

    I use RoboForm V6 and while it was OK with IE9, it now loads passwords but not the username, which I then have to fill manually.

    I should mention that this also the case with Windows8, At least I now know it's IE10 at fault, not the OS.

    The latest RoboForm probably solves this, but I see no other benefit to justify upgrading.

    Susan, I have my PCs (several win 8 and several win 7) set to Check for updates but let me choose whether to download and install them. The win 7 machines do that very well but today I am reminded again of the seeming inability of my Win 8 Pro (the $40 download) machines to even check for updates when on this setting. The last time that the check for updates was done always shows as Patch Tuesday or two weeks later.

    I have the same trouble with Adobe Flash on the Win 7 machines when on a similar setting. It almost seems like an intent to ignore the machines when they are set like so. The thing that reminds me is that the Australian government has a notification service for updates and nasties. I should probably raise this in one of the general forums but I thought to let you know to see if you have any knowledge of update problems on Win 8 machines.

    Edit
    sorry I realised after posting this that it related to IE10 on win7. I will leave it but I will understand if the post is killed or moved.
