Internet Explorer 11 update(s)

Recommended Posts

Hi trium,

I think the one I gave is a new option in FFx v59.0. ??

If you still have v58 then you may not see it.

Probably why you don't see that opion then, ESR dose not have the latest features and improvements.

 

Anyway, enought of that. This is a thread about Internet Explorer not Firefox.

Apologies for the hijack Willy2.

- The previous posts gave me some suggestions what to look for. But after changing some settings the nagging "Active content" pop-up message keeps popping up. I would assume that IE 11 would remember my preferences after a while. Perhaps I need to dig a little deeper (registry ???).

- No, in IE 11 that nagging pop up message keeps popping up. No matter what I try. (Did I overlook something ?)

- When  the user has installed a few "Cumulative Updates" & "Rollup Updates" (both for e.g. win 7 and for .NET software) then it seems that the the amount of files in the infamous "Winsxs" grows at a rapid pace (again). I ran the build-in "Cleanmanager" program ("cleanmgr.exe") 2 days ago and it was able to remove 1.42 GB worth of system files. Ouch !!!

- I fear "Windows Update" on my Win 7 system is (a bit) "broken". Because the "MS catalogus update" website already has the "Windows 7 March Rollup Update Preview" but when I run "Windows Update" that one Preview update doesn't show up.

- I downloaded & installed the March 2018 Cumulative Update for IE 11. It was the second "Cumulative Update for IE 11" for this month. Did MS spot a "few bugs" in the 1st update released earlier this month ?

- Indeed, that are the ones.

Quote from the link provided in the previous post:

"Cumulative security update for Internet Explorer: March 13, 2018 kb4089187 is replaced by :
Cumulative security update for Internet Explorer: March 23, 2018 kb4096040 "

- The "Preview Rollup update" (for Windows 7, NOT for .NET) has the KB number KB 4088881 and was released on march 23, 2018. My "Windows Update" "doesn't find" this Preview update.

- No. Because I installed the latest "Cum. Update for IE 11" (KB4096040) first. After that I asked Windows Update to find more updates but it didn't find the March 2018 "Rollup Preview for Win 7". But this same Preview was available from the "MS Update catalogus" website.

- Re-installed Win 7 today because a number of things didn't work (properly) anymore (e.g. Windows Update (??)).

- Did put "Windows Update" (WU) to work and it came up with some very odd suggestions. WU told me/suggested that I should install:

(Important):

- the december 2017 Rollup update for Win 7 (KB 4054518)

- the september 2017 .NET Rollup update (KB 4041083)

(Optional):

- the november 2017 .NET Rollup update (KB 4049016)     (???????)

 

- Is MS too busy fixing (truck loads (???) of) bugs in Win 10 and therefore ignores Win 7 & Win 8 ((a bit) too much) ?

with Win7 main support already wound-up and the extended life cycle ending in around 18 months there simply is no economic benefit in touching Win7.
and if it's one thing we know about MS, everything is revenue driven.
like XP, they would be hoping these users jump on-board the Win10 wagon.  all they have to do is just wake up each day and that time gets a little closer with each sunrise.

-  @ mta: I fear you're right that MS doesn't care too much about Win 7 anymore. Especially in the light of the experiences/info below (I am still busy updating/configuring my freshly installed Win 7 SP1).

- After installing the "Convenience Update" (of may 2016) Windows Update continues to behave in a strange way. Windows Update simply won't offer the latest "Quality & Security Rollup" update. I think I'll have to manually download and install that one update.

- Also installed the latest "Cumulative Update for IE 11" and now that extra pop-up warning for "Active content" doesn't show up any more in the IE window. Odd, very odd.

i think you going wrong with that you installed convenience update and after this you became immetialy the latest quality & security rollup blablabla from xx.yy.zzzz...

 

perhaps this going step by step after each new offered installed ones from ms -> after a restart and updatesearch again maybe ms will give you the next suitable quality and security rollup wich is fit for your w7.

- Even before installing the "Convenience Update" (of may 2016) WU didn't recommend the latest "Rollup Update(s)". See my 2nd post on march 25 in this thread.

- And this kind of hassle is precisely why a new Service Pack and follow-ups with "Cumulative Updates" would make life much easier, even for MS. MS thinks that those "Rollups" will simplify the updating process but I disagree. My story in this thread (convincingly) proves that, IMO.

1) This is odd, very odd. When I ran Windows Update a few days ago it recommended the "Roll Up" update for April 2018 but the size of that rollup was smaller than the previous "Roll up" of March 2018. Is MS about to change its update policy (again) ? Is MS working on a new Service Pack ? Or are/were there one or more (new) bugs in the previous "Roll Up Update" (march 2018) ?

2) Then I ran WU today again and it now recommended (among 5 others) to install (Surprise #1) a "Cumulative Security Update for IE 11" from (Surprise #2) september 2016 !!! And 3 of those recommended (security) updates were from (surprise #3) 2014 and 2016 (twice) !!!

(I must say that I ran the build-in "CleanUp" tool between 1) and 2). But I don't think that it should matter).
