because somehow, IE9 RC disabled my second monitor. I still haven't fixed it yet, let alone figured out how it did it. I'm about to uninstall and reinstall my video drivers, and I guess my next plan is to roll back to yesterday or something.

I double checked to make sure I didn't kick the cord to the 19" LG Flatron that is currently a black screen, but nope, it's plugged in, the blue light on the front indicates it's receiving a signal, it just so happens that the signal it is receiving is absolute nothingness. The main monitor, the Acer, is running fine as I'm typing on it right now.

So, if you're on Windows 7, please avoid installing the RC unless you're certain it won't mess things up. I'd say wait until the official REAL release so they can squelch the bugs for good.

Edit: Simple driver uninstall and reinstall fixed it. So nice of nVidia to include the clean install option on drivers these days.

Still, I reiterate, because there is no reason for this to have even happened:

Why would you install any version of IE, let alone an unproven RC?

Because I use my personal system to beta test, so to speak, the windows updates I then roll out to my client sites. I've blacklisted IE9 RC from our nVidia system using clients because of this. It joins .NET Framework 4 and Windows Search 4 as "not safe to send out yet."

IE9 works GREAT for me, especially the download managerr, on 99.9999999% of all the websites I visited - except ... my own.

www.prismaticllama.com loads the mobile version for the forums using IE9 for some reason that I haven't figured out yet. The website is coded to detect mobile devices and load a mobile forum and I haven't figured out why it detects IE9 as a mobile device :P

Even so I highly recommend downloading it. It's nice, fast, stable, and DOWNLOAD MANAGER!!!@ ZOMG!!!!!

Make sure you download windows 7 service pack 1.
