  • RE: update MS11-003 (Cumulative Update for IE)

    Microsoft "recommends" that users who had applied FixIt #50591 should UNdo that FixIt, by running #50592, before installing MS11-003.

    For people who didn't do so --- either because they didn't realize it (at all, or in time), or because they were set for AUTOMATIC updates --- and now find they have MS11-003 installed withOUT having UNdone the FixIt --- HOW should they proceed at this point??

    1) do nothing now --- it's too late to go back, and it's safe as-is.

    2) run 50592 now (even after installing MS11-003) [and stop there].

    3) run 50592 now, and then RE-download/RE-install MS11-003

    4) remove the MS11-003 update (System Restore??), run 50592, and then  RE-download/RE-install MS11-003

    5) something else completely.

    I am aiming for definitive answers (citing authoritative sources) rather than mere "speculation", if at all possible
