Just downloaded IE9 in the attempt to be able to install SP1 on W/764 bit computer and I get this annoying taskbar type thing from PCA Asking to drag it to the Taskbar.

Anyone know how to remove it every time I open I/E9 it pops down from the Toolbar.

It does not show on all sites but if you select tools in the menu bar, compatibility view settings, you can add this site to it. I have boxes ticked for, Include updated website lists from Microsoft and Display intranet sites in Compatibility view.

any idea as to how I can sort this.

i have tried to download it about 10 times and get the same result every time.

I have tried it with all the security programs switched off and no difference.

Knowing you like a challenge I thought that I would ask just in case you have came across the problem before.W/7 64Bit Home premium.

The last time it came up with error code 8024200D

This is a pain as I tried to uninstall SP1 on Win7 running 32-bit, knowing I'd be fresh installing 64-bit for a new drive later on. Just to see what happens I found I could only uninstall it in safe mode and that went well. I tried everything to reinstall it but failed miserably. Kept rolling back after installing to about 30 or 40% if I remember correctly. This was with uninstalling Rapport, disabling AV etc. I didn't go as far as uninstalling Avast, maybe I should have, and tried installing SP1 off-line?

Have a look here for some pointers, click here and make sure you have backed up. Hopefully you'll have better luck than I had.

After about 2 months of trying I finally have it installed.

This is for update KB976932-SP1

You want the 2nd bottom one if you have the 64Bit version and the bottom one for the 32 Bit version.

They don't look right but worked a treat for me.I was a bit worried when the started downloading the wrong update but it was followed by the correct one.

It says it takes about an hour and they were right an hour and a bit more I would say.

But at least it is downloaded at last.Once downloaded you will have to run windows updates a few time to get all of the rest of the updates.

I would have been really annoyed if I had wasted all of that time and it did not install so quite happy with the outcome.

Glad you're sorted. When I did a fresh install of the 64-bit version I used Win7 64 with SP1 download from here, link . Now my original 7 disc didn't come with SP1. It activated OK even though it states here it shouldn't, Avivation.
