  • Hi,

    Version Updates and Security Updates for IE11 are included with Windows Updates.

    Start>Control Panel>Windows Updates

    You can find out which Update version you have from the Help>About Internet Explorer....

    There are two version numbers..... the exe version number, and the Update Version number (followed by a KB number)....That KB number will be listed in the Windows Update Control Panel>Installed Updates...

    The downloaded exe's from MS, do not include the security patches and updates that are delivered by Windows Update..... It would appear that you already have the latest exe and update versions delivered by Windows no further action is required....

    If you are having problems with your installed version of IE11, it may be because the other web browsers you've installed have changed the Windows default web browser settings...
    Start>Control Panel>Internet Options>Programs tab, click/check the option to make IE your default web browser....
    On the Firefox and Chromium settings you will find a similar setting + an option to check each time if that particular browser is the default.... you should disable that option (to set that particular browser as the default) to prevent those browsers from over-writing IE's settings for file associations and mime-types..
    Google and Mozilla also have stand-alone versions of their browsers for windows...Canary and Waterfox... these versions can be run on windows machines without hijacking IE's settings.
