Hotfix or MS Fixit for IE?

I sure thought I saw something recently about a fix of some sort for better protection of IE9 & IE10 if we don't want to go with FF, Chrome, or Opera, now can't find it. I'm quite sure it had a KB#.
Did I dream it or is it just my senility?

Thanks maxie. I tried reading the link but am on overload of reading so much already today that I'll do it fresh in morning. How did you find it? I searched the forum as best I knew how but no luck. I'm also wondering how many posters of Seven Forum have applied the fix?

One of the recommendations is to have a dedicated antimalware utility,
Which I use Malwarebytes Pro so that certainly qualifies and provides real time protection from malware and other threats,
If you have it you'll be fine,
I don't use "Hot fixes" I wait for the full release via windows updates for less possible conflicts and possible issues loading windows updates,
But If you don't have a antimalware suite you might consider using another browser,
But on another note I saw a date on the article dating back to 2/11/14 so this might be a older hot fix ?
So be sure to Check for Windows updates to make sure you have all available updates installed this was also one of the recommended suggestions,
Cheers.

Just for the record this is the current kb# version,

I have MBAM free version up to date and Avast free version up to date except the program, still on v8 and IE9 updated to 2909921.

I think I'm careful about where I go & am not a helter-skelter clicker but some of the newer threats are still spookie.
Have thought about going with IE11 but I see lots of problem posts here.

For the most part ie10 is more like ie9 and a better choice to upgrade to,
I myself am using ie10 again,

I have no problem with IE9. What I was getting at is that this new "Snowman" or whatever they're calling it targets IE9 & IE10 but not IE11 so they suggest either getting away from IE or upping to 11.

Well the link posted by Maxie applied to All versions and win-8-8.1 so unless you have a better link ?
Cheers.
