It might be that Microsoft has no XP version of IE9, but that's hard to imagine. So, is there an XP version and how do I find it? Thanks in advance for guidance. This is an awesome place for old novices like me.

There is no XP version for IE 9.........only win 7 I believe.

Windows XP is not supported by IE9. IE9 uses quite a bit of DirectX 10 magic for the hardware acceleration so it shouldn't come as a surprise.

There is no XP version for IE 9.........only win 7 I believe.

Vista is supported as well.

Yes, IE9 has been released for Vista and W7 only. Windows XP will run IE8, but not IE9.

Thanks, I guess that I'll just stick with Firefox. As always, I very much appreciate the help.

No XP version. Supports Vista & Win 7 but features "Windows 7 integration bit functionality"... whatever that means.
