Updating windows explorer

If not fixed, this may lead to severe computer problems.

Keeping your Internet browser up-to-date is important for both security and ensuring that web pages load properly.

The browser, originally released as part of the Windows 8.1 upgrade to the company's most recent client operating system Windows 8, is now also available for Microsoft's most popular operating system market share wise.

Unselect the check button ‘Install new versions automatically’. Is there a way to do this without wasting time on windows, besides just buying a Mac so you can get work done ?

Leave the button selected if you want to have updates installed as and when they are available on Microsoft website.

But the solutions given in the posts are very haphazard. So I decided to dig deeper into this issue myself to find a solution. I tried a couple of things to fix it: such as “shutdown /r /o” to bring up the recover options. My break through comes from the observation that “windows error reporting” process is running when the explorer crashes.

Something like change the font setting from 175% to 150% (it is surely not the case for me), getting windows update (I can’t even getting the “ms-setting” to run in the task manager), uninstall “Inventor” (what exactly is that? Fortunately, even though the explorer crashed (thus the start menu are not available), the task manager still works. I thought I might be able to find some hint from the system log.

By that time, IE6 and IE7 will be automatically updated to IE8 if you choose to install the updates automatically.

You do have the option to choose to install your updates manually and uncheck the IE8 update, but that might also mean that people who don’t want to install IE8 yet might accidentally miss that step and got it installed.

Click anywhere on the top ribbon or next to the address bar, and click on ‘Menu bar’.

IE8 will be officially available through Windows Update in April.

You may also want to make sure that you want to use Bing as your default search engine and MSN as your default homepage in Internet Explorer.

If you do not want that, uncheck the option before you click on the get Internet Explorer 11 button on the download website.: The installer may need to download components from the Internet despite its large size of about 56 Megabyte.

We also recommend that you update any plug-ins, extensions, or other add-ons you have installed.
