Has anyone experienced issues with IE 11 for Windows 7 ?

I always keep my system "Fully" updated for Windows, to include my add-ons. However, due to the articles on Computerworld,and just today another issue reported on Infoworld, in regards to page rendering especially related to Adobe Flash Player. I elected to  Postphone/Hide my Internet Explorer 11 Download, and installed the latest Security Update for Internet Explorer 10 "Updated Version-10.0.11"-KB2888505

It seems like Microsoft is having a problem with implementing IE 11 for Windows 7 Service pack 1. Hence is the very reason I am hesitant to install. I utilized Firefox up until IE10 was introduced, and it has been Flawless in my opinion. I especially chose to use it since McAfee primarily uses it for functional purposes. Before I go through the Clean Uninstall of my Total Protection, in order to install IE11...I was wondering if anyone was having issues with it on Windows 7?

Another question, if I may ask. When I do upgrade to IE11,and go to " My Account" to download and re-install my Total Protection. Should I expect it to be the 12.8.856 Version still ? Is the 13.0-13.1 still in beta?  I know everyone is busy, any answers would sincerely be appreciated.I realise that I have the choice to go back to Firefox,or Chrome. However, I have had no issues what-so-ever with IE10,and would like to remain using Internet Explorer.Of course I also know, irregardless I eventually have to install it, for McAfee to function properly.

As always, Thank you in advance

Re: Has anyone experienced issues with IE 11 for Windows 7 ?

There are some reports similar to that link you posted regarding Flash and some regarding blurry fonts, but personally I haven't seen any issues.   Mind you I normally use Firefox.

If I recall correctly I didn't bother uninstalling my McAfee software first. IE11 installed OK.   I think all I did was disable real-time protection until it was installed but there shouldn't really be a need for that either.

You could post here for some advice perhaps:  http://www.sevenforums.com/browsers-mail/   I see no reason not to wait until it appears inj Windows Update, by then the kinks should have been ironed out.

I installed it more out of curiosity than anything else.

Thanks Ex Brit   Downloaded and installed, I might even add that I didn,t bother to disable RTS either. I surfed a bit until family arrived from out of town. I didn,t experience any issues with Adobe Flash Player either.

As I always say...."All is "Good in the neighborhood"

I marked your reply as a "Helpful Answer" As it indeed was.....
