    I've just finished installing IE9 on my windows 7 32-bit machine. It appeared to complete ok- no errors or warnings in the event logs.

    However when I try to run IE9, the window opens, the blue loading circle spins, "not responding" appears, then the window shuts without anything appearing in the browser window.

    My machine is a decent spec, and I've had no problems with IE8, or any other browser before.

    Here are the things I've tried which didn't help:

    • Installing IE9 via Windows update, instead of manually
    • Running in "no add-ons" mode
    • Disabling all add-ons manually
    • Running the OS in safe mode
    • Temporarily disabling firewall/antivirus
    • Resetting IE settings in "Internet Properties"
    • Ticking "Use software rendering instead of GPU rendering" in "Internet Properties"
    • Re-registering dlls
    • Running program as administrator
    • Installing SP1
    • Installing all critical/important windows updates
    • Logging into Windows as different user
    • Downloading the installer using a different machine (in case installer was corrupt)
    I am now officially out of ideas. Anyone got any more?
