Solved Should I Accept or Reject IE9 Recommended settings?

Specs: Vista Ultimate, SP2, 3.0Ghz/2Ghz
I recently upgraded to IE9 and a dialog box keeps coming up asking if I want to choose Recommended Settings or not. I keep clicking on Ask me later. I am leaning to not use recommended settings. Any thoughts on this? I do not go to questionable websites and compatibility view is available in the address bar should I need it.

IE9 is not secure anymore. You should probably use a different browser. I prefer Mozilla Firefox myself. There are several others to choose from.

As far as the settings go, I personally would choose the recommended settings and then not use IE at all.

Vista itself is approaching end of life. See the link below for more on that.

I agree with OtheHill. Accept the recommended settings & keep it updated (as much as Microsoft allows), but don't use it. Switch to Firefox or another modern/secure browser.

Note that IE has to be there for Windows updates, but you don't need to use it generally.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

What are the recommended settings: it will make IE, the default web browser, it will make the home page, provide "suggested sites" in the favorites bar, and allow compatibility view, all of which can be altered back easily, and as most have suggested, you can accept them, and simply set things back the way you have want or you decline the suggested settings and carry on, it 's no big deal other way. Also a self-confessed "Firefox" user.

To err is human but to really screw things up, you need a computer!
