Am I going to see any improvement by putting I.E. 10 on a Windows7 desktop or is it just for touchscreen laptops running W8

Only tried Vista a couple of times on my grand Daughters computer and did not like it.

W/8 I don't like at all I am using my W/7 computer just now.

I think it could be an age thing as it is far to complicated for me.You learn how to get into one area of the computer and the next day you have forgotten how to do it so you have to start searching again.

It badly need the start button and all programs back again as it is far to complicated.

You can download them from another source but they don't look right.

Marks out of 10 I would give it a 4 but I know that there are others out there that do like it.I am just not one of them.

I have found no problems using I/E.10 on W/7, as far as I know you have to update your flash programs manually on the W/7 version but it comes with Microsoft updates on W/8

So we can agree, I will stick to Windows 7 until Windows 9 comes along, by which time I shall be too demented to use it!!, but I will upgrade to I.E. 10.

Since sending last message the following appeared on "Windows Secrets"

There are fourteen other updates to be downloaded unless you are on automatic.

IE 9 users get a cumulative security update

It’s not a Patch Tuesday without some sort of Internet Explorer update. This time around, the fix is for three newly reported vulnerabilities in IE 9 that could allow an attacker to acquire the same rights as the current user. It’s a good reminder that one of the top security best practices is to do your browsing in a standard-user account (not an admin-level account).

IE 9 is the only version of Internet Explorer impacted by this critical update.

For Windows 7 users who like testing new software, Microsoft just released a preview version of IE 10, the browser included with Windows 8 and RT. (Some of you might have forgotten that a Win7 version of IE 10 has been in the works.) You can get the preview at an MS Downloads page or a TechSpot site that includes Microsoft’s promo material. I plan to test drive IE 10 on Windows 7 Preview soon; Microsoft claims it’s faster and more secure, plus does a better job of displaying webpages than its predecessors.
