Where ca I find a safe download for Internet Explorer version 9.0?

Hello:

I have a new installation of Windows Server 2008 R2 (64-bit) and that came with Internet Explorer version 7.0.  At my work we logon to a remote portal that will only work with Internet Explorer version 9.0 and I thought I would update the Server to IE version 11.0 and then hopefully downgrade to a lower version by un-installing Internet Explorer version 11.0.

If I uninstall IE version 11.0 that will bring the version back down to 7.0.  Where can I find a safe download of Internet Explorer 9.0?

Sorry to tell you this Dirk Mare, but I did try that before and that vista version will not work on Windows Server 2008 R2 (64-bit).

I think you can find ie8 and ie10, I think there may have been too many issues with IE9 such that it was permanently removed and only source is a third party where you would take your ... in your hands.

get the system up to 8 firs so that you will not continually roll it back to 7.

Then try this http://download.cnet.com/Internet-Explorer-9-Windows-Vista-7-Server-2008/3000-2356_4-75726958.html

There were different issues with IE9 and peripherals, printers, etc.

Does your environment have WSUS, search the updates for IE9

Thank you all for your feedback and warnings.  I found an older version of IE .0 installer in the office.  That worked.
