Download IE App Compat VHD from Official Microsoft Download Center
Windows 7 IE test virtual

*Note: You may be required to activate the OS as the product key has been deactivated. This is the expected behavior. The VHDs will not pass genuine validation. Immediately after you start the Windows 7 or Windows Vista images they will request to be activated. You can cancel the request and it will login to the desktop. You can activate up to two “rearms” (type slmgr –rearm at the command prompt) which will extend the trial for another 30 days each time OR simply shutdown the VPC image and discard the changes you’ve made from undo disks to reset the image back to its initial state. By doing either of these methods, you can technically have a base image which never expires although you will never be able to permanently save any changes on these images for longer than 90 days.

Every time I start Internet Explorer 9 the "Welcome" page - Microsoft Answers
1. Press Start button + R and type “gpedit.msc” in the text field and press Enter to launch the Group Policy Editor.
2. In the left pane, expand User Configuration, then find and expand Administrative Templates, next find Windows Components under it and expand it. Then finally find “Internet Explorer”, click on it.
So the path would be: User Configuration> Administrative Templates> Windows Components> Internet Explorer
4. On the right pane, find “Prevent performance of First Run Customize settings” and double click on it. A new settings window will open up.

5. Set the value to “Enabled” and then go for the options section. You will have two options from the dropdown menu:
i. Go directly to “Welcome To IE” page
ii. Go directly to home page
Select the first option (i) to skip the IE first run Customize Settings and go directly to your home page.
Select the second option (ii) to skip the IE first run Customize Settings and and go to the “Welcome to Internet Explorer” page directly.
6. Click Apply to save the settings then click OK and close the Group Policy Editor window
