Specs: Windows Vista
I have Vista Service Pack 2 with IE 8. No problems. Yesterday I ugraded to IE9 and immediately my computer locked up when using Explorer. A couple of times the screen went black and I has to shut down and reboot. I disinstalled IE9 and went back to IE8..works fine now. What is the problem with IE9 and Vista?

i had the same problem.. i thought it was with my graphics card coz the screen suddenly turns black and it reccurs very often.. but i noticed that it wasn't just the screen that freezes but the entire system coz even my sound freezes too. i tried to recovere my entire system and everything went fine until windows update upgraded some features again like IE8 to IE9, windows essentials and etc.. i uninstalled the upgrade for IE and my system works fine again.
