When downgrading from IE10 to IE9, if the update for Internet Explorer 10 is removed prior to uninstalling the IE10 feature, the IDM built into IE9 will no longer work.

Additionally, reinstalling IE9 will also not retrigger the IDM, nor will downgrading to IE8.

When the box is simply unchecked to uninstall IE10, however, and the Windows update for it is not removed, the IDM will continue to work as normal.
