Is there any way of "pre blocking" this 11 update as I need IE9 and unfortunately Java for one machine as my workplace uses it for payroll purposes?

I had a chance to explore the final version of IE11 on Win8.1 and it's amazing - for IE.
It still struggles when loading humongous pages continuously; I had a lot of trouble going far back down my Facebook timeline and looking at hundreds of search results on flickr - the browser would randomly freeze and just when I think I'd have to kill it via Task Manager it's back up for ten seconds before it does it again.

And I absolutely hate the fact IE forced me to use the HTML5 player on Youtube with any clips that don't have ads, even on the desktop version :/

It's a shame I couldn't play around with it more because my Intel HD drivers for Windows 8.1 are, apparently, inapplicable for my laptop (even though they were designed for my specific model) and it had a tendency to run hot when using nVidia's GPU - long story short, I had tons of graphical glitches in IE11 which I couldn't solve because of the Intel HD drivers (I had to use 8 drivers instead of 8.1)...


I can't wait to get it on Windows 7, I thought it would be out already, if not at 8.1 launch

That's funny...I remember an update blocker being released back in February, right before the release of IE10. So it's not "totally new," unless you meant totally new as of IE 10.
That version of the update blocker was for IE 10 not 11 there. As you see they now have a newer version for 11 now that 8.1 is launched prior to seeing the 7 version released. I don't recall them having one for IE 9 however which would have been good when going to clean install 7 a few years back and not wanting 9 but keeping 8 on instead.

For blocking the next or newer version of IE often you can spot and simply uncheck that from the lilst of updates when checking manually. You just have to spot the one for any newer version of IE regardless of which one you have on. But that when manually checking not having automatic updates set.

Scary yes but a fact of life cost cutting in government depts now I think is getting beyond a joke . They want a premium service but at Bi-Lo prices.

Night Hawk,

I get all that...what I was responding to was this claim: "The update blocker is something totally new for IE..." when obviously it wasn't totally new (since they'd released an update blocker for IE10.)

The blocker for 11 would be totally new. MS has had blocker kits going back to IE 7. For each newer version of IE you see a newer version of the IE blocker kit. But that has always been made available during the beta period of each version prior to the final release.

The point I was making was that doesn't determine just when each newer version's final release becomes available and why following the IE Blog team's blogs is the best way to learn just when 11 will become available for 7. Typically you see the announcement there first.
