Just recently upgraded to IE9

Self build / N/A

Specs: Vista Ultimate, SP2, 3.0Ghz/2Ghz
Several days ago, I upgraded my web browser to IE9. Since then, I've noticed two things that are different from IE7. First, when I change sites I no longer hear a clicking sound. Second, I no longer get the message that says "Do you want to display only the secure components of this web site?". I guess since IE9 is more secure this message isn't necessary anymore? Is there a setting in IE that enables the clicking sound when you change sites? Thanks.

Good to see you finally updated to IE9 - too little, too late I'm afraid. IE9 is no longer secure & MS has no intentions of fixing it. After all, Vista has only has 3% of the worldwide market share & those running Win7 or 8 should be running IE11 by now. Time to switch over to Firefox or Chrome.

I don't know why you would want the annoying click sound enabled, but here's how to do it:

Riider, thanks. Isn't Microsoft putting out cumulative security updates for IE9? I know when I was using IE7, there were still cumulative updates that appeared in Windows Updates.

The message about 'secure components' probably means it reset your personal IE security settings when it upgraded. You should be able to modify them to what you want.

You are right that cumulative updates are still produced for IE9. MS have extended Vista support to 2017 so presumably the IE updates will now continue until then. By design later IE versions are more secure, although not available for Vista.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

I just noticed that my weather gadget no longer works after updating to IE9. It changes as to what time of day it is but the temperature is always the same. I guess this has been disabled by IE9? I've already been told about gadgets being a security risk but I got used to my gadgets! Now I guess only system generated gadgets will work like the date and time? No more stock quotes and weather; progress but no progress!

Up to you of-course but you could always create a desktop folder with links inside it to clock/weather websites. Not quite so neat obviously but a way around the security risks.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Is there a gadget service that IE9 disables? Or does it remove the service entirely?
