Microsoft officially introduced the final version of Internet Explorer 10 for Windows 7 yesterday, with the company claiming that it’s one of the best browsers released for this popular operating system.While IE10 indeed seems to be faster than its predecessors on both Windows 7 and Windows 8, our users have already reported the first bugs, revealing that, in some cases, the browser actually does more harm than good.
We’ve heard that several users couldn’t install Internet Explorer 10 on Windows 7 machines at all, due to several errors that popped up during installation, and one of our readers confirmed the issue.
“I installed IE 10 on a Toshiba Satellite laptop with Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit OS with no problems whatsoever. I cannot install it on an HP Pavilion with the same OS as I keep getting bogus errors about not being able to install updates which are either already installed or not applicable. Interesting!” he wrote.
Others, however, said that some services or even the other applications installed on their Windows 7 workstations stopped working after installing Internet Explorer 10.
“I just installed IE10 on my Windows 7 machine, and Chrome no longer navigated to any URLs. Also IE 10 crashes a couple times per minute,” one reader said.
“After installing IE10, my Yahoo mail is no longer working,” another one added.
While Microsoft delivers the new Internet Explorer 10 browser via Windows Update and all users should get it as soon as they restart their computers, removing this new build and switching back to Internet Explorer 9 isn’t such an easy job.
Truth is, experienced users should have absolutely no problem in getting rid of Internet Explorer 10 on a Windows 7 system, but we’ve also created a step by step guide to assist beginners throughout the entire process.
