Windows 7: Windows 7 testers should upgrade their IE8

Righto, hands up. I am confused

Please guide me.
I use Firefox or GChrome, not IE.
However I HAVE to use IE for certain sites.
For example MS downloads.
What do I do? Do I get this IE upgrade, and if so, how...
Thanks,

Well, if you read the article...this is the IE update you should have been issued in Windows Update yesterday. Not so much an upgrade really, more of just a few fixes.

Hello Airbot, thanks for answering me.
Righto, one reason I am confused is that I read that all the updates for Seven were dummies, just testing the update process.
It now seems that some are valid and should be installed.

Next: I have not been offered any updates by MS.
Should I go looking for them, and if so, what?

Umm, and I did read the article, and sorry, but I do find it confusing.
Thanks, as always, for you help

Well, that's what they were saying, that it would be 5 test updates...
It seems most of us got 5 updates yesterday but for me, only 2 were tests and the other 3 were actual updates. I don't know why you haven't got them if you have build 7000. Are you positive you haven't gotten them? Have you Viewed your Update History in Windows Update?


Are you running 32 or 64 bit?

And is it activated with a key?

Thank you Airbot, I looked where you suggested in Windows Update - dunno where to find it, so I did a search from the start button. It worked and took me straight there. Hooray.
I have two tests and a few updates sitting there. I shall address them tomorrow morning. It's late now.
Thanks for your guidance
