Does anyone use Internet Explorer 10?

I've always updated IE to whatever new one is available and never before had a problem but I haven't been able to update or download anything new since installing it. Also, although I've got it set to not delete cookies it always does and every time I switch off and on again I have to sign in to every account. It doesn't remember logins or passwords either.

Any ideas?

It might help to know your operating system? I'm not going to be of any help because I haven't used IE for years. I used to use Avant, then Firefox briefly, but for years I've used Chrome. Occasionally I come across something that won't work with chrome so I use IE8 or 9 just for whatever it is that can't use Chrome.

Lynda - I know you like a hassle free life, I think Chrome might be your cup of tea as you install it & forget.

It's Windows 7 64 bit. I did try Chrome for a while but didn't get on with it at all.

I'm getting desperate. I decided to give Chrome a go but, just like any other program, I can't download it. Decided to do a System Restore but that is no good as the restore points offered don't go back far enough.

What stops you downloading it?

As for system restore - there should always be the very first restore point from when you bought it.

You get an open or save option when you try to download. Nothing happens if you opt for open. Press save and it says cannot be downloaded. Press retry and it says resuming. And it says resuming until you finally get cheesed off with it and get rid of that tab altogether.

System Restore only shows files back as far as the end of February. I think I downloaded IE10 in mid February.

I even thought of removing IE10 altogether but it doesn't show up in the programs to uninstall.

Did that and I can no longer see it in the installed programs but I've still got all the problems. I've been without a Firewall now for 4 weeks and it's worrying me. It disappeared after I'd installed IE10 and tried to update Zone Alarm.

I've just checked and it says I'm still using IE10 even though I can no longer see it in my Installed Programs. It certainly seems the same as it was earlier.

Profuse apologies. I'm a daft bint. I discovered I had my internet options set to automatic updates so it simply reinstalled IE10. I've removed automatic updates, removed 10 and now seem to be back on 9. I managed to install Zone Alarm easily.

Thanks for the help, Keith.

If I were really techie, I wouldn't have had to ask for help. I can't believe how many things didn't work properly with IE10. I haven't been able to access messages on Facebook for a month but now I can. I've got my Firewall again and been able to update Adobe Flash Player and Java too.

Thanks once again to Keith. Such a relief to be able to update things and to see Zone Alarm checking on sites and actions. :D
