I had the Windows Update on this Windows 7 that installed that security patch for Internet Explorer. Now IE does not load. It was working fine before that update. Yeah they fixed the vulnerability alright, cannot use the browser. Good thing I have Firefox.
I run Windows7 Ultimate, Firefox Browser, have Norton Internet Security, and use an assortment of other security programs, all to the good; however, I also have IE on board, which was a natural evolution due to my previously having had Outlook Express, which needed IE, along with Windows XP. I've kept IE as a "backup" because now and then it is needed by some programs.
Now, with the purported IE intrusion alert, am I vulnerable considering the above-mentioned conditions? IE is, after all, only used in rare circumstances, but is still on-board. I've wondered now and then if I even need IE anymore...however, was told years ago it is good to have....Thanks in advance for commentary on all.
