To uninstall IE9, go to Windows Updates, Installed Updates, and scroll down the list (probably way down) and find IE9 as an Installed Update. Uninstall the IE9 update and that takes you back to IE8.

Once in IE8, do an IE Reset (Tools, Internet Options, Advanced, Reset). Reset clears passwords and other things.

Once uninstalled and IE8 has been reset, restart and try reinstalling IE9. Assuming it installs, use the 32-bit browser in a 64-bit machine. ... Thinkpads_User
