My Windows 7 x86 PC offered me the updates the new IE9, I installed it.
When I launch IE9 it prevents me from opening my investment account pages at the bank. It says that there is a connection problem and to diagnose connection settings.
I then uninstalled IE9 to go back to IE8.
Unfortunately after uninstalling IE9 my computer will only give me the option to install IE9 in the updates/win features.
I also search the web for a standalone installer of IE8 for Windows 7 x86 but I can only find versions for XP, Vista, 2000 & 2003
I tried this page: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/internet-explorer/downloads/ie-8
. I chose Vista 32 bit.
When I attempt to install, it says "This version of Internet Explorer 8 is not supported by this operating system"
Someone suggested to install IE8 for the Windows 7 disc, but I can't find it on the disk either.
Any ideas on how to restore IE8 would be most appreciated.
