This past week a friend had major problems with his Windows 7 computer which is only 2 1/2 years old and he called me and told me the following information
--- On Friday, he couldn't run his Norton 360 because of some corruption issue and it had error codes 8504 & 104
------ On Friday evening he ran Malwarebytes and it ran overnight for 13 hours plus and it was still scanning. It wasn't reporting any infections during that time period
--- On Saturday moring he reset his computer back to its factory restore settings with help from HP, so the good news is his computer is as good as new and he hasn't lost any data
--- When the computer was restored it used IE8 and then through all of the updates he had to do, IE8 was automatically updated to IE9
--- Since the technician was still on the phone with him, he asked the technician whether or not he should upgrade to IE10
--- The technician told him that Windows 7 doesn't work with IE10
Since I was curious about that answer I googled the issue and it appears to me that Windows 7 does work with IE10
--- Personally I feel my friend should stay with IE9 unless there's a compelling reason to update to IE10
I have 2 questions
1. Does Windows 7 work with IE10?
--- Why do I ask? Because some websites I found are ambiguous on the issue and I have no idea of what is being discussed other than problems with IE10
2. If Windows 7 does work with IE10, is it just a matter of time that IE10 will be automatically updated through Windows Updates?
--- My friend has his computer set for Automatic Updates
