"What a disaster!"
Nothing noticeable on Windows 7.
Couldn't download anything! PDF's, documents, Microsoft Fix-It's in hope of fixing this disaster..... None of them. Additionally, History list permanently empty. Tried everything I could think of to get IE10 working. Nothing remotely useful on Microsoft's IE support site. Downloaded three Fix-Its using Chrome, ran them, no help. So I've uninstalled IE10 via Control Panel/Programmes & Features, back with IE9, works as normal. Phew. BUT I had only installed IE10 in the hope it would fix a problem I had with IE9/Flashplayer not being able to view 'protected content' programmes on UK Channel 5's "Demand 5" service. That still doesn't work with IE9 and I can't fix it. Solution? Downloaded Chrome.. . . 100% working, super-fast, no bugs, no hassle. I'm so impressed, despite being basically prejudiced against everything Google.
Thank you CNET for a platform to release my frustration about this awful software. I have trusted, tolerated and relied on Microsoft for many years through rough and smooth. But I fear they have finally lost the plot.
