I have Windows 7 with Internet Explorer 9. I am a government employee needing to access my travel department from my personal computer. Security protocol indicates I must use Internet Explorer 7 or earlier to access and that Internet Explorer 9 doesn't meet security certificate requirements.

Can I install Internet Explorer 7 and select it for use when needed?

Internet Explorer 7 is not available on Windows 7 without some major shoehorning. Windows 7 ships with Internet Explorer 8. In order to use Internet Explorer 7 or below, you should use a virtual machine with Windows XP installed. Take a look at the Virtual PC Image from Microsoft, or try VirtualBox.

I just tried accessing the site and IE8 is the latest supported version.

This is the message that I received when trying to access the site. So it makes it much easier to use both IE8 and IE9 on Windows 7 than going all the way down to IE7 and having a much tougher time doing so.

We support the following browsers and versions.

Internet Explorer 6.0
Internet Explorer 7.0
Internet Explorer 8.0
Firefox 3.0
Firefox 3.5
Firefox 3.6

You can try that:

Run IE6 IE7 IE8 at Same Time - Internet Explorer Collection

(that question is like yours: Can I install IE 7 on Windows 7?)
