I have a 64 bit Windows 7 PC that according to the Turn Windows features on or off dialog has IE9 installed but when I do Help | About in IE it is showing IE8.

How can I fix it so the version we run is actually IE 9?

First Download the installer for IE9 from the below link. Then instead of going into "Turn Windows Features On or Off" just above that you should see "View Installed Updates" Go in there and click on IE9 and remove it.  Then restart and reinstall it.  Here are full instructions on how to install and uninstall IE9.  

Good Luck HTH.

actionco--Is the IE 9 installation for 64 bit?  
There is nothing wrong with having both installed.  But you have to set your IE icon shortcut Target line to where the IE9 iexplore.exe resides.

However, you can uninstall IE8 from Performance and Features if you really do not want it.

Internet explorer is corrupted.

Looks like ie9 update is partially installed...go to internet options - advanced- click reset to reset internet explorer settings..

After that restart the system and then check help - about in Internet explorer.

If the above does not work then create a new user account and check the IE version in help-about.

I've tried all of these ideas, nothing has worked and as it is not critical I am going to leave it as it is.

I would like to thank you all for your suggestions!
