    You may get the message "Operating system not supported" or " You have latest version of IE installed", IE10 is much faster and stable in Windows 8, I don't see any benefit in IE9 over IE10.

    Hi 'muiacir', If you are having problems with IE10 and the Metro version; why not try the IE10 version you can use from your Desktop. The Icon/Tile for it will either be already within your Start page or if not it will certainly be in the 'All Apps' and from there you can pin it to your Taskbar in Desktop.

    No, IE10 is part of the OS, if you start meddling with it, you may end up with an unstable system.

    IE10 is better than IE9 (I need that on Win7 as well...)
    No way to downgrade and is not even recommended if possible.

    The easy way:
    Your university should allow Chrome or Firefox instead, just to solve the problem.

    The hard way:
    Use IE9 from a (Win7) VM, but i don't see this step as the optimal solution, should work though.
