    Here is the download link directly from MS.

    And here, for people who support multiple Windows 7 PCs and who don't want to allow IE10 to install yet is the Toolkit to Disable Automatic Delivery of Internet Explorer 10. (You can still install IE10 'manually' on selected workstations.)

    As an FYI, if it matters to you, when you install IE10 and look in tools/about Internet Explorer, there is a box there that's checked to"Install new versions automatically" by default.

    I unchecked mine; but I'm curious what others think is the best thing to do.

    Seeking clarification then. Why do most people advocate not having Windows Updates automatically installed, and reviewing the suggested updates first? What's the difference with IE?

    There is no difference. If you do not "install new versions automatically" you should still be notified by Windows Update.

    I still use WU without automatic updates. I just feel comfortable letting IE do so.

    The install new versions automatically in IE 10 is just for IE 10 updates. Windows updates obviously deal with OS, Microsoft apps, and IE updates. Many people like to see stability in Windows apps by others before applying them. They are less concerned about IE updates.

    Well guys, I installed it without a hitch.

    I never saw much difference in speed between IE 9 32 bit and 64bit but with IE 10 64 bit I noticed a increase in speed in pages loading..

    On Windows 7 Pro at work, I have had to revert back to IE8, since our major and critical browser application fails, somewhat miserably, with IE9. Heaven knows what would happen with IE10 - I don't intend to find out until the problem with IE9 has been fixed!

    Does the application still fail using IE 9 compatibility mode?

    To be honest, I've not tried it. There's no obvious reason for us to use IE9 instead of IE8, and I shall just wait until the (external) application gets fixed.

    The main reason for moving up to Ie 9 (or 10) is better Internet security but that may not be an issue for you since I'm sure you use good browsing habits.

    I have found several sites that only work in IE 9 compatability mode.
