Download security update for Internet Explorer

Today Microsoft released a security update for Internet Explorer. To help protect your computer, visit Windows Update to download and install the update and ensure that you have automatic updating turned on.

Note: This update replaces the Fix it that we posted earlier this week. If you install this update, you do not need the Fix it. If you already installed the Fix it, you still need to install this update.

    Windows Update does NOT list this update when I "visit". I checked my update history and it has not been installed so, WHERE IS THE UPDATE?

    Update fails.  All fixes on error message don't work.  Can not "repair" Windows thru reinstall process as "upgrade path" fails because machhine is already at a higher level.  Machine is clean.  Have done several different virus & malware screens in safe mode.  You need to relook at this updare.

    Why was all this software installed on my laptop on 9/13/12 without my permission. I may have other Malware software that I prefer on my Google Chrome based platform!

    Why weren't we asked if we wanted this install prior to it automatically populating my hard drive?

    As an Avira user, I have received a message that my laptop is unprotected. For some reason, I cannot turn on Malware (the other three are okay).  I even went so far as to restore my system to an earlier date which was successful, but the message in the Security Center still exists. I have logged off and restarted repeatedly, but the message  remains the same.  Please assist in this effort.  Thanks,

    Will the security update emove false compouter technical programs. I was ecently connected to something called 'Advanced Technical support'. I think it was a scam and contacted my credtid card provider to cancel the fee. I have heard nothing more from that company. Have you heard of them?

    I thought I was automatically enrolled in updates—why do I get these notices?

    There is no install click button on this site.

    Maybe it is a scam or containing a virus to

    destroy computers.
