Recently I have trouble to install IE9. when I downgrade from IE 11 or 10 IE drops to version 8.  There is an update for IE9 when you run Windows Update but it fails every time you run it. I am not sure it is recent Microsoft updates that discourage you using IE9? Unfortunately  company has some old software that has to use IE9.

Any suggestions?

I don't know if this will work (don't know your OS)  because I don't have these browser versions installed but according to the documentation you can run ie 9 in ie 10 versions by clicking on F12 in ie 10.  That will bring up the developer tools.  Then navigate to the drop down menu tab.. there should be a tab ... "browser mode"...with options to run in previous version...including ie 9...
