  march 11:20 18 Mar 2011

please don't laugh as this might seem a daft question to some but if I download IE9

should I run or save the program?

does it make any difference which one please &

also will IE8 be removed when IE9 is installed?

thanks march x

It does not make any difference which you choose.

Yes IE8 will be gone, but not forgotten.

PS - please note that IE9 is not compatible with XP.

just didn't know about run or save as ie8 was already on pc at start & I know when I save other downloads I can chose where to put them
will take checkpoint and see how it goes

You're welcome - there is no such thing as a daft question - but not so sure about daft answers :-))

I usually save any download first for 2 reasons. I can then scan any downloads for nasties although my anti-virus suite does do this as it downloads so that is a but OTT. But the second reason is that if I have to uninstall and re-install I don't have to download again.
