This is confusing me like crazy. Games were running perfectly before (e.g. Witcher 2 and Skyrim), but after installation of IE9, I get the typical renderer errors you get with an incompatible or nonexistent video card.
I can restore to before IE9 was installed, and everything is fine. It's really annoying because every time I turn on the computer, it's the one "important" update Windows really wants to make, so I just want to install it and have all the software live in harmony. I can reinstall the video card drivers and games will work until the next restart. wtf?
Any help would be appreciated.
Using an HD 6870 and running Windows 7 64-bit. Also i5 2500, 8 GB ram, Gigabyte Z68 mobo if it matters.
