The final version of Internet Explorer 10 for Windows 7 was released only a couple of days ago, with the new build delivered by Microsoft via Windows Update.
While all users are clearly recommended to download and install the new Internet Explorer version, some are already complaining about compatibility issues that are completely killing the Aero interface on Windows 7.
People are reporting via Microsoft’s support forums that Aero is automatically disabled once Internet Explorer 10 is installed on their Windows 7 computer and rebooting the system doesn’t seem to make any difference.
“I installed IE10 from windows updates. I rebooted. No Aero. Is there a proper fix for this outside of uninstalling IE10 and whatever other updates that came with it?” one user reports
“Having the exact same issues: it’s not that there is just no Aero, there is no ‘windows color’ option. When doing personalization, Windows Color, it skips directly to advanced (no way to change color or set translucency rate,” another one continues.
Surprisingly, this is one of the issues reported in the preview version
as well, so Microsoft was expected to fix it with the release of the final build.
This isn’t, however, the only bug discovered in the new version of Internet Explorer 10 for Windows 7, as our readers have found many more issues after deploying the browser.
It appears that Internet Explorer 10 fails to load some websites, while also breaking down the other web browsers installed on a Windows 7 computer, including Google Chrome and Firefox.
While Microsoft is yet to release an official statement on these bugs, the company is most likely investigating the glitches as we speak, so expect new improvements to be released next month together with the other Patch Tuesday fixes rumored to include Surface RT and Surface Pro tablet updates.
