Toolkit to Disable Automatic Delivery of Internet Explorer 9
(just in case you want to do it yourself and manually)

http://download.microsoft.com/download/7/7...ckerToolkit.EXE

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/deta...7d-01776bf2bea4

QUOTE
To help our customers become more secure and up-to-date, Microsoft will distribute Windows Internet Explorer 9 as an important update through Automatic Updates for Windows Vista SP2 for x64 and x86, Windows Server 2008 SP2 for x64 and x86, Windows 7 x86 RTM and higher and Windows Server 2008 R2 RTM and higher for x64. This Blocker Toolkit is intended for organizations that would like to block automatic delivery of Internet Explorer 9 to machines in environments where Automatic Updates is enabled. The Blocker Toolkit will not expire.

Note:
For computers running Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2 the Blocker Toolkit prevents the machine from receiving Internet Explorer 9 as an important update via Automatic Updates on the Windows Update and Microsoft Update sites; Internet Explorer 9 will be listed as an optional update.

The Blocker Toolkit will not prevent users from manually installing Internet Explorer 9 as a Recommended update from the Windows Update or Microsoft Update sites, from the Microsoft Download Center, or from external media.

Organizations do not need to deploy the Blocker Toolkit in environments managed with an update management solution such as Windows Server Update Services or Systems Management Server 2003. Organizations can use those products to fully manage deployment of updates released through Windows Update and Microsoft Update, including Internet Explorer 9, within their environment.

Even if you used the Blocker Toolkit to block Internet Explorer 7 or Internet Explorer 8 from being installed as a high-priority or important update, you will still need to use the Internet Explorer 9 version of the Blocker Toolkit to block Internet Explorer 9 from being installed. There are different registry keys used to block or unblock automatic delivery of Internet Explorer 7, Internet Explorer 8 and Internet Explorer 9.

I think the 64bit version comes with 2 binary, 32bit and 64bit, still using RC here doh.gif
As for 64bit, if the flash does not work for you, you may need to download it separately, here: http://labs.adobe.com/downloads/flashplayer10_square.html <- this one is preview version only, release version(no 64bit atm) are more up-to-date compare to this 64bit preview version.

I don't think that is necessary. I installed IE 9 on top of IE 8, without any problem. Yes, with IE 9 installed, IE 8 is automatically disabled. We all do not have to worry about IE 8 registry being corrupted.

If there had been really a need to uninstall IE 8, Microsoft would have stated the need to uninstall inside the KB article for IE 9.

I think that the IE 9 installer made by Microsoft is quite good. If you want to revert back to IE 8, just uninstall IE 9 from "List of Installed Updates". With that, you should get IE 8 working back again.

The architecture (32 bit or 64 bit) of IE that should be installed depends on the architecture of Windows. In short:

32 bit Windows - 32 bit IE 9

64 bit Windows - 64 bit IE 9

smallvill3, you just install 64 bit IE 9 in your 64 bit OS. Once it is installed, both 32 bit and 64 bit IE will respectively be upgraded to 32 bit and 64 bit IE 9.

I was able to disable ClearType when using Windows 7. However ClearType is only useful for large monitor because it actually works well on a 22inch monitor (1680 x 1050) that I used at home.

However at office, I use a 17inch monitor (1440 x 900) so the ClearType can cause blurry/fuzzy text.

That said, I still cannot disable ClearType on IE9 running on Vista OS.

Internet Explorer 9 to be broadly rolled out on Windows Update in late June

http://windowsteamblog.com/ie/b/ie/archive...r-adoption.aspx

Internet Explorer 9 will not be broadly rolled out on Windows Update until the end of June.

We do this because we have hundreds of millions of business customers that rely on Internet Explorer and require an appropriate window of time to plan and test their deployments. We also have a responsibility, as the most popular browser on the planet, to ensure that IE9 is introduced in a timeline that allows web site developers to have the chance to ensure their site is 100% ready. The net of all this is that any comparison of browser share adoption at this point is premature at best, and misleading at worst. In a few months we’ll be better placed to look at the share of the latest browser versions and get a sense for relative progress and adoption.

Forget June: Microsoft already pushing IE9 via Windows Update

QUOTE
Microsoft officials said recently that the company was not going to push Internet Explorer (IE) 9 to users who hadn’t tested its latest browser until late June.

On April 6, however, I began receiving reports from users who had not installed the Release Candidate (RC) or the beta of IE9 that they were seeing IE 9 show up via Windows Update — something that wasn’t supposed to be happening yet.

Some users were none too happy about this, given they had been expecting Microsoft to push the update to them — and their users (if they are administrators for larger networks) — for a couple more months. (One less disgruntled user did quip: “Better early than never. Now where’s my NoDo update?“)

Microsoft has marked the update as “important,” said users who began seeing it today. It is being pushed to Windows 7, Vista, Windows Server 2008, and Windows Server 2008 R2 users, according to reports I’m getting.

Microsoft plans to turn on the Windows Update spigot for Internet Explorer 9 (IE9) on Monday, April 18.

Starting then, Windows Vista and Windows 7 PCs will begin to automatically offer users the upgrade, Microsoft said Thursday.

"IE9 will not install automatically on machines," Roger Capriotti, who heads IE marketing at Microsoft, said in a blog post. "Users will have to agree to install IE9."

Windows XP users will not see the IE9 upgrade offer or be allowed to install the browser because IE9 does not work on that still-dominant operating system. The newest browser suitable for XP is 2009's IE8.

When the IE9 upgrade is offered to users running IE7 or IE8 on Vista or Windows 7, a splash screen will appear that lists three choices: Install the browser, decline IE9 or delay the upgrade. If the user chooses the last, IE9 will be offered again at a later date.

As it typically does with major upgrades for its browsers and operating system service packs, Microsoft will gradually throttle up the offer; not everyone will be presented with IE9 immediately. Microsoft plans to wrap up the upgrade program by the end of June.

Fix Blurry/Fuzzy Font Problem in IE9 on Windows 7 SP1

Downloads: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2545698

“Text that is displayed in the following core fonts in Windows Internet Explorer 9 appears blurred, when you compare it to text in Windows Internet Explorer 8: Arial (10-point and 11-point), Verdana (9-point and 10-point) and Tahoma (11-point and 13-point).”

The evolution from IE8 to IE9 brought with it some changes impacting font rendering by the browser. With IE9, Microsoft opted to take advantage of the DirectX 11 APIs (application programing interfaces), a decision which contributed to the blurry font problem.

“This issue occurs because of a design change to rendering is made in Internet Explorer 9. By default, Internet Explorer 9 uses sub-pixel positioned ClearType to render text by using DirectWrite, whereas Internet Explorer 8 uses whole-pixel positioned ClearType to render text by using the Microsoft Windows graphics device interface (GDI),” the software giant explains.

But as of June 28th, 2011, IE9 users can download an update designed to make fonts rendered by the browser as sharp as in IE8.
