John, I thought you had to visit a bad site -- are you saying just having IE9 open whilist you visit a safe site makes you vulnerable?

If you use IE to visit a bad site then you are vulnerable; visiting that same bad site with either Chrome or FireFox is apparently safe. If you use IE to visit trusted sites, for instance the MS Windows Update site, you should not have a problem.
