Stop IE10 from updating

  1. I'm not sure about previous versions, but I believe those were delivered via Windows Update.

    Internet Explorer 10 has a somewhat hidden checkbox that is enabled by default: "Install new versions automatically". I am unsure if this overrides the Windows Update settings.

    The option can be found in: Settings > About.

    Gollie, I didn't know mine was already checked. So now my question is , if I un checked it, would the recent past IE 10 fixes be applied? St1ckM4n, if you want me to start a new thread, I will.

    This place is as good as any to discuss it. :)

    If you uncheck the box, I'd say that the relevant updates would still appear as a listing in Windows Update.

    Well, I don't even know if they're in there. I know I've received them,I just don't remember if I'm the one that checked that box or not.Yea,I know. I sound confused don't I. Guess I'll see what happens after tomorrow.
    I don't use IE10. It don't work either. I type in techspot & tap enter & it don't do anything.
    In another thread, I was considering rolling it back but I don't think I'll waste the effort since I have better browsers.

    The box was checked for me by default, when I upgraded to IE10.

    You know that suggest Windows 7 will get IE12 update in the future. Somehow I don't believe it's possible, the way Microsoft is shutting out support for Windows 7. I'm actually surprised IE11 is currently being ported to Windows 7. If you ask me IE11 should also be ported for XP users.

    With the exception of when I first went online,(2001) I've never been a fan of IE
