Dear computer lady,
I have a Toshiba laptop with XP windows that is about 4 or 5 yrs old,
I have not installed either of the IE 8 or IE 9 updates.
Is it to late to update or will I have trouble now if I do load in the IE 9. Also I was told the IE 8 would only cause trouble with my XP windows. What would be you suggestion?
Thank you so much. Jan
Unless you have a compelling reason to install Internet Explorer 8 or 9, I would not upgrade.
The reason is fairly simple, your computer was built with less RAM and processing speed than today’s computers have. Current versions of software like Internet Explorer are written for the computer of today that has dual and quad core processors and 4 to 8 Gigs of RAM.
Often what happens when you upgrade an older computer, is that the computer will run slower as it struggles to keep up with the demand of software written for more powerful machines.
My best advice is that if it isn’t broken, don’t fix it.
