Your computer must have the following operating systems installed if you want to use Internet Explorer 9.
#1. Windows 7
#2. Windows vista with service pack 1
#3. Windows Server 2008 R2
If you have the correct operating system installed and Internet Explorer 9 will not install or crashes on you follow these steps to fix this problem quickly.
#1. If you are installing Internet Explorer 9 form a download and it fails try to install it from Windows update. If this fails try to install it from Windows update which can be accessed from the Windows start menu. If one method fails try the other. Sometimes there can be an issue with one of the download servers. This is why you should try both.
#2. If the above method fails then start Windows in safe mode and again try to install it. There could be software preventing installation. To get into safe mode press the F8 key on your keyboard before Windows starts and then select safe mode with networking from the menu. Once in safe mode download and install Internet Explorer 9.
#3. If this still fails temporarily disable your firewall and antivirus software. This could be clocking the download or corrupting it. Disable it long enough to download the setup files and complete the installation and then enable it again once you have finished.
#4. If it still will not install run Windows update and update all your system files and security updates. If you are running Windows vista or Windows 7 make sure you have service pack one installed. Once you have done this retry the installation. If Windows 9 fails to install or crashed with a not responding error go to the next step.
#5. If all the previous steps fail you may have Windows or file corruption caused by malware or by a virus. To check for this download a system and registry scanner. This will scan Windows and the Windows registry for malware and viruses you may not be aware of.
