    It's available via Windows Update, or you can download and save and install the full file from here.

    This is the final release and is not a beta or pre-release version.

    has anyone downloaded it yet? if so, how does it perform in comparison to IE9? I would have thought it may still have tweaks to be made to it but will await users responses before upgrading:)

    I've got IE10 installed in all my Windows 7 computers, and it seems to work fine. (y)

    If it has any bugs or issues, I haven't seen any yet.

    thanks! I'll give it a go, can you easily revert back to 9 if necessary?

    I've never reverted back to IE9 and don't see a need to do so.

    I don't use themes.

    Just wondered if IE 10 had any themes to choose from? Don't think it does?

    Thx

    Windows 7 users don't have much of a choice about upgrading to IE 10. Microsoft will install IE 10 the next time your computer installs automatic updates.

    You can block Microsoft from installing IE 10 automatically for Windows 7 with this download.

    There's no need to use a third-party tool.

    If you change the Windows Update setting from

    Install updates automatically

    to

    Check for updates but let me choose whether to download and install them

    you will have control over which updates get installed and which updates don't. (y)

    I don't have it auto set, I prefer to have control over which updates I want to download

    True...but most people (because it is recommended) have their Window Updates set to install updates automatically. Therefore, if they prefer to leave their setting as-is (as recommended by Microsoft) they can use a third-party tool that will prevent the automatic install of IE 10 on their Windows 7 OS computer. That said, I (like you, and like you are suggesting) have my Windows Update setting to 'Check for updates but let me choose whether to download and install them.'

    I'll wait a while before installing IE 10. The only time I use Internet Explorer anyway is just for Windows Updates. I much prefer Chrome as my browser.

    I've downloaded IE10 but I may not be keeping it, doesn't fit the screen, above the tabs is a gap showing the desktop, I don't want the full screen mode as it hides the tabs, also there's supposed to be a broken link icon for problems with websites but it's not showing up near the address bar. I've found that the Facebook glitch in other IE versions is affected in IE 10 too, I can view my initial page but when I click to play any of my games it goes berserk! it flashes and opens new tabs becoming quite unstable, I've ran it in Compatibility view but still the same problem so it's not really working well for me overall
