Available now: Security update for Internet Explorer

  • Comments 80

Today, Microsoft released a security update for Internet Explorer, that we blogged about earlier this week.

You probably already have automatic updates enabled and will not need to take any action. The update will be downloaded and installed automatically. If you’re unsure if you have automatic updates, or if you haven't already enabled automatic updating, now is the time.

Windows XP is no longer supported by Microsoft, however, we decided to issue a security update for our Windows XP customers. We continue to encourage our customers to upgrade to a modern operating system, such as Windows 7 or 8.1 and use Internet Explorer 11, the latest version of our web browser.

We encourage you to take steps that protect your computer such as enabling a firewall, applying all software updates, and installing antivirus and antispyware software.

Stay up-to-date with the latest version of Internet Explorer.

What's the problem? i fail to understand.So pl. help, intervene AAP, as it's an SOS status for me t the present moment!!  

    With best wishes & regards,  


  • I have Windows Vista...about a month ago thanks to an ex-boyfriend messed me up as we shared a computer..never mind that I am the one who bought it.; anyway, I have been trying to get things back the way they were but it was impossible...lost it all, including my FB...I have cried, been depressed because I am very ill with cancer and the only entertainment I have is thru the computer and talking to my FB friens and my family...I've triend everything...I've gotten this far, but cannot remember my FB or my email pswds.., etc..I am very upset. I'd slap him and his new girllfriend if they were in front of me!! My question, other than hiring the Geeks is what can I do? Any of you know how to get it all back??!! Any suggestions?

  • I had Hotmail for years...then out of the blue, it was changed to seems that the more they try to help, the more complicated and scary things get!!! We need to keep things simpler or at least give instructions when things don't go the way, instructions should be made understandble by non-geeks... Thanks.

  • I truly hate microsoft for this uneeded stupid update for hotmail.  If I need something more secure I will get it.  I have no other email address to send the code to, won't send it to my current email.  I am missing important emails while I wait for this stupid process to be over.  Fortunately I have a Mac laptop and will never use microsoft products again.
