Internet explorer 9 problems


  • I am running Windows 7 on a fairly new gateway computer.  After a restart this week, internet explorer will not stay open.  I get a brief window which closes after a few nanoseconds.  I've tried to load internet explorer 8 but get an error message saying my system architecture does not support it.  Any help or suggestions?

  • Hi,

    It seems you downloaded a 64bit version of IE, but you have 32bit Windows 7 installed. For your issue, please refer to the following article.
