You may have previously installed IE10 at some point and not uninstalled it.
You cannot "downgrade" IE to an earlier version, you must first uninstall IE10.

Control Panel > Programs & Features

Click "View Installed Updates"
Scroll down to "Windows Internet Explorer 10" and right-click on it.
Then left-click "Uninstall".

When completed you'll have your earlier version of Internet Explorer back.
Now you should be able to install IE9

What IE version are you currently using?

IE9 is the latest main version for Vista - IE10 would not have installed.

Where are you getting your IE9 download from? Maybe you already have an IE9 sub-version installed that is equal or higher than the one you are downloading. You can check the exact version from IE Help > About. The latest should be 9.0.8112.16421 for Vista.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Thanks Phil 22 for the information.
I did not have IE10 installed so the outcome remains the same

Hi Derek,
I may have made a mistake as i uninstalled IE9 before i tried to upgrade.
Now i can't get anywhere with the the help menu as i tried to download IE9 again and it will not download as it keeps repeating the message there is a more recent version installed.
Regards

Georgem

Did you download IE9 directly or are you using Windows Update?

Sounds like you deleted it manually, which would have left registry entries behind. Proper uninstalls normally take you back to the previous version.

I guess you could try CCleaners registry cleaner on it, although normally I don't advocate using registry cleaners. Save anything you remove in case it backfires.

Wish I could dream up something other than Windows re-install. Unfortunately, despite all the commercial wrangles about MS and browsers, IE is still integrates itself into the system so when thing go badly wrong it is darned near impossible to untangle.

If it's any consolation many feel Chrome is more secure. On the downside you might need IE for Windows updates (some manual ones at least). Without it the only option is to collect them on another computer then install them via a flash drive.

As this post is getting old I don't think it would raise any eyebrows if you reposted it. It would then attract new helpers and there is always a chance that some bright spark might see a way forward.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
