Question

i upgraded my new T420 Thinkpad with IE 9 from Windows update.  After my 64bit version crashes when opened.  My 32 bit opens, but I can't seem to post messages here .  should I revert back to IE8?

 

 

 

Answer

There is a workaround. Follow the steps below and it should solve the problem.

 

1. go to: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb963902
 2. Download & install autoruns app.
 3. run AutoRuns
 4. on AppInit tab, find:
   C:\Windows\system32\nvinitx.dll
   NVIDIA Compatible NVIDIA shim initialization dll, Version 270.61
   NVIDIA Corporation
  Un-check it (do as administrator in case you run windows 7)

 6. Reboot.

 

 

 

 

It is recommended that you use a 32bit version of IE9 even in 64Bit version of Windows,since a 64bit version of IE9 has known compatability issues
