Can’t Install IE 10 on brand new Windows 7


Hi Alison!

A lot of people encountered problems while trying to install the Internet Explorer 10 version, especially on Windows 7. First we have to be sure everything matches.

Are you sure the system requirements are met? You have to have installed a Windows 7 version on 32 or 64 bits, with Service Pack 1 or later versions. Then, check if the version you're trying to install is suited for your kind of Windows, on 32 or 64 bits.

Make sure you installed all your updates for every program. To do this, go to Control Panel, System Security and click on Windows Update. Download and install any updates the program requires you to.

Another solution would be to uninstall and reinstall the browser. To do so, go to the Start menu, search for Programs and Features using the special searching box, click on View installed updates. In the Uninstall an update list, look for the Internet Explorer 10. It may be in the Microsoft Windows section, so look carefully. Click Uninstall and then Yes.

Then, restart your computer when prompted. You should wait about 20-30 minutes before reinstalling the version, because there might be some temporary files left. Also, you can try cleaning the cache and temporary files on your computer.

A solution I would not recommend is to temporarily disable your antivirus software. Indeed it allows you to install the browser, but you might also get some nasty problems which would be much harder to get rid of.

If any of these don't work, I'm afraid there might be a problem with your video card. Apparently, the update won't install on the computers that have a hybrid video card, and they are not compatible. Try and update your video drivers and see if it works. On their page you can see the whole list of video cards that are incompatible with IE 10. If yours is on that list, you have to wait until they come up with something. Meanwhile, I recommend you to use another browser or just stay with the old version of IE.

Good luck!
