I had IE8, was told I needed IE9 to view something, I forget which. So I downloaded IE9 on my Windows 7 computer and it ruined my computer. I can't even get it off. System Restore doesn't work. The Internet is full of IE9 stories like this, and Microsoft does nothing? It cost me technician time of $125 to learn my computer experience with IE is now done. Luckily I have Mozilla-now my new browser.

Rick, that is certainly true. There is no limit to ignorance.

P.T. Barnum is credited with the phrase "There is a sucker born every minute". In the business of computer repair a lot of these shops see almost every one as a sucker.
