How to block IE 11 from SCE 2010


  • Hi Sir/Madam:

    We are using hosted solution for most applications that are dependent on IE. Also, we are using SCE 2010 to push MSFT Tuesday patches every month. Now, we have realized that those applications are not compatible with IE 11 and we want to stop pushing IE 11 to our clients computer. I have found there has no software/update package or any management pack templates deployed inside SCE 2010 related to IE and wonder is any method or rule to block IE 11 being downloaded or approved inside SCE 2010? Since I have noticed IE 10 was automatically approved and pushed onto the clients computer already.

    Please advise and Thanks for your help
