Internet Explorer 10 (IE10) for Windows 7 was released two months ago. According to our benchmarks results, IE10 brings some performance improvements. Even if you're not an IE fan, there are plenty of 3rd party applications that relay on it and some [lamer] websites that won't work on any other browser but IE. Therefore, we recommend that you update.

For compatibility reasons, Microsoft designed IE10 to run in 32-bit mode by default - and unlike its predecessors - there isn't an obvious option or shortcut to launch the 64-bit version. It took us a while, but we finally found a way to run IE10 in 64-bit mode.

1. Ensure all of your add-ons are compatible with 64-bit mode. Disable any add-on that isn't available to the 64-bit architecture.
Control Panel Internet Options Programs Manage add-ons

2. Turn on Enable Protected Mode.
Control Panel Internet Options Security Check the box of Enable Protected Mode under Internet zone

3. Turn on Enable Enhanced Protected Mode.
Control Panel Internet Options Advanced Scroll down to Security Check the box of Enable Enhanced Protected Mode

4. Ensure that User Account Control (UAC) is enabled.
Control Panel User Accounts Change User Account Control settings Ensure the slider is NOT set to Never notify

5. Restart your computer.

6. You can verify by visiting this page with IE10. The user agent should be: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; MSIE 10.0; Windows NT 6.1; Win64; x64; Trident/6.0).

If you put a gun to my forehead and demanded I should enable UAC, I probably wouldn't have the courage to turn it back on.
Yes, death is better then constant UAC popups (even though I appreciate the implied level of security.)

Oh, yeah, I know how it feels. I spent one day with UAC (yesterday) and it was a pain. Unfortunately, there isn't any other workaround. IE10 64-bit requires UAC on. But hey, at least you don't have to type a password for every change you make unlike modern Linux.

I see windows 8 has gone sort of in that direction, if I'm not mistaken you can't turn off the password on the admin account, you can just make it auto log in.

There's also a lot of (lamer) website that don't work well or at all with I.E. I hate programmers that are so anal they can't program for all the major browsers. It's not that hard, and really stupid not to. Programmers work for people first, computers second. They need to keep that in mind.

IE is not a major browser. Case closed.

Ha! Thanks I needed that laugh. You really need to get a clue. I.E. 10 is being force pushed to most Windows 7 and Vista machines. Today, not the biggest, but soon. And it should be, as it's the most secure browser available today.
