    Title sum it up. I already had IE9 installed, but Windows Update whined that I needed to install it as an update. I did as it prompted, but am now finding that instead of taking 1 second to load, it now takes 5-6 seconds.


    What gives? What can I do to fix this problem?

    Did you do any tweaks to your self installed version, like multiple server/connection settings in the registry? I imagine the MS Update version would overwrite those.

    Nope. Uninstalled it via the programs/features along with its respective update and downloaded the package from MS's website. Their standalone download package for some odd reason starts up much faster than the version they give through Windows Update.

    Just wish they'd hurry up and update their 64-bit version so it runs fast as the 32-bit version.

    Nope, the development of Internet Explorer 9 was completed, thus Microsoft will most probably not include the JIT script complier into 64-bit IE9. It is the key component causing 32-bit IE 9 to be much faster than its 64-bit counterpart.

    For us, let's hope that 64-bit IE 10 is developed to be faster than 32-bit IE 10.

    IE 10 is rumored to be the default web browser of Windows 8. When Windows 8 is expected to released in 2013, then by then IE 10 is available for us to download.

    That's looking kind of far ahead...

    Yes, it is. For now, we cannot determine the release date of Windows 8. Perhaps, it can be released in 2012, but we are not sure.

    Anyway, if I am not mistaken, IE 9 was developed within the time frame of 1 year. As Microsoft cannot afford to lose any ground to Firefox and Chrome in this browser war, expect that IE 10 will be developed within 1 year as well. Thus, 2012 is the earliest time that we can see the release of IE 10. However, do not be too disappointed if it can be released in 2013.

    How come Internet Explorer 9 doesn't show up for me in Windows Update? I'm on Windows Vista 64-bit.

    You can download it as a standalone for Vista 64-bit. But I got the alert on my Win7 machine when it was already installed. I guess Windows detected it as an obsolete version.
