IE 10 Error in Windows 7 64 Bit

41 posts in this topic

Visually they didn't change anything, but the performance is vastly superior.

I wouldn't notice, I don't use it enough, only ever gets opened to test a site if I think FF is playing up

I have found through various methods that the reason that IE 10 will not install is that I am using 3rd. Party themes. This problem seems to only effect Win 7 x64 machines. Since my shell.32 is modified as well as other .dlls in SysWOW64. IE 10 will not install or work. If I remove all of this it will. The problem is that if I re install the 3rd party themes, IE 10 will break again. Many users are affected by this and Microsoft should fix this issue. Just an FYI.

I think that .dll patchers which enable 3rd party themes should fix the issue, not MS since they do not support any kind of patching of .dll files.

IE 9 works perfectly fine with the patches. I don't really care if they fix it or not now. I just wanted to see what it is like. My intent was never to use IE 10. I do not even use IE 9. I have now removed it from my machine.

Do you game in DX11 ? Some parts / patches that go along with IE10 bring DX11.1 features to Win 7 too

I have all of the required patches to get IE 10. I do no Online Gaming.

Sorry, I didn't mean for you to get IE10, just that it also brings new features to Win 7, with you saying you weren't going to bother with it any more I was wondering if you would miss DX11.1 features

It affects single player gaming too (Affect or Effect... I can never remember that one :p )

The features may have been in the 4 prerequisites. My gaming is the same now as it always has been-Great!

I couldn't start IE10 in Win7 64bit either.

After searching for days I found the solution in some forum on the net: try to remove all search providers from IE options. After that, my IE10 worked like a charm.

Also just remembered about this utility

http://www.tweaking....all_in_one.html

It automates a tone of fixes. It can registered/unregister all of the IE critical files (in addition to doing a lot more).

I just ran this and it worked great. I was able to instal IE 10. The problem was with the 7tsp Hud Evolution Icon pack. With that removed it works, Thanks everyone.

I also have same issue on my business notebook, it has nothing as far as mods or custom windows files,basically I have W7 x64 and MS Office 2013

and Quickbooks, and Firefox installed, I just received it back from RMA a couple of months ago and of course it came back with the windows re-installed

it had W7 home premium but I upgraded it to Windows 7 pro, all legal not pirated. doesn't matter I use Firefox as main browser anyhow.

will wait for MS to release a hotfix.

I am a diehard Firefox user but IE 10 is twice as fast.

Well IE 10 worked great for about 45 minutes. Very fast but then my screen started to go black and I ended up with a BSOD. I re imaged and I am officially washing my hands with IE 10. MS can keep it along with Windows 8.

All I could add is I helped someone on another forum get IE10 installed correctly, apparently Norton Internet Security 2013 was causing problems with it.

I don't know if security software is definitively the case in similar situations but people having issues should consider it.
