Just something to think about,
Never download ie11 or Internet explorer from anywhere but your Windows update system,
Secunia is okay but is also showing a 100% score so what Is really the issue ?
Just because it says ie11 is unsecure doesn't mean much because it's also showing a 100% score so no other version will do any better,
Microsoft needs to fix what ever issues exist not Secunia or from other source it will still be Unpatched,
Cheers.

Hi ThrashZone...

The IE11 I would be downloading is straight from Windows Microsoft itself...posting link for you so you can look at it...

Download Internet Explorer - Browser

I completely understand that it's not Secunia's responsibility to fix this issue but to guide you to find the help you may need to get it fixed? If I explained myself right...lol

Gotta check on dinner and I'll return to see if I'm safe to download that IE11. And is it ok to download that right away (if you say ok) because I'm already getting updates to the IE8...

The version you posted is Optimized for Bing and MSN but yes is a valid download site,
So if you enjoy MSN as your Home page and Bing as your default search than it's perfectly fine to download this version,
Usually patches apply to all version of Internet explorer indicated by the KB# of the released windows update security patches,
Just because this Optimized version was suggested doesn't really mean it's a Patched version so Secunia will most likely show it's still insecure or still red flagging it,
Cheers.

You are always welcome to ask a new question in the Browser and Mail section

Well let me explain myself a bit more clearer if I can...Secunia isn't suggesting this site for me to download as a fix or patch to my IE11 whatsoever...like I said in a prior post...
HTML Code:
While looking at the secure browsing scan in my Secunia...I clicked on  Security Advisory SA56796 (I believe this is the bugger that's causing  all this and there's no patch for it) looking thru there I saw Microsoft  IE-11 and I clicked on it...and it brought me to a new Windows page for  downloading a Fast and Furious for Windows 7 Internet Explorer 11.
When I look into it deeper it clearly says that there is no patch from the vendor...and this is where I thought and forgive me please I'm no pc-geek here but I do try...I thought that if I uninstalled IE11 and reinstalled a new fresh version of it maybe it would fix my problem. And I'm only thinking this because this download of the IE11 is the here and now version of 2014...Am I still off the page here? Please let me know because I really just want to fix my IE and have it up-to-date instead of IE8 that it is now. I can attach the pix or the Secunia files I was going by to maybe help you understand what I'm trying to say here...

ThrashZone I'm attaching some pics to show you how I came about all this and hopefully this will maybe explain what I'm trying to say a bit better...(I apologize I don't mean to make this out to be so difficult but my MS sometimes doesn't let my brain express what I'm trying to say...I know what I'm trying to say just not saying it right or so its more understandable I guess...I'm very sorry that)...

I'm also attaching the web address? so you can hopefully read thru it and at the very bottom of it all maybe you can tell me what you got out of it and hopefully it's the same as me...lol I guess it's the only way I can explain things with my stupidiness...again I apologize for my stupid brain

Here's the link but please look at this last...Security Advisory SA56796 - Microsoft Internet Explorer Multiple Vulnerabilities - Secunia

Thanks for the link,
Secunia has is free version that is what you're using,
Like all free utilities they also offer a paid for version,
Which is what the link you posted is for,
Which it's up to you personally I would pass on the upgrade,

I was hoping to get this and all responses to a New question in Browsers and mail where others could chime in,
But let me just say,
GregRocker installed the "free" version of Secunia for you because it's a good Heads up utility = Free so there's no costs to you,
And it's necessary to keep mostly Java and Flash player up to date if you use these utilities as well which you do for games....
So long story short use Secunia for just that reason to keep Java and Adobe flash player up to date,
Internet explorer patches come from Microsoft and Only Microsoft,
Secunia had Nothing to do with Windows development and Design and it can not patch Internet explorer even the Paid version will not and can not patch Internet explorer or Windows in general,

Secunia will alert you when vulnerabilities may exist but Secunia can not Fix anything it will only direct you to the newer version for Java and Flash or open Windows update to download the update,

Which you can do this yourself if you knew how which I'm sure your set to automatically download and install windows updates anyway so Secunia is only giving you a "heads up" as to what is available and report flaws,
I have to say the ie11 warning is more Scareware than anything because it would be like hitting the lottery than getting exploited or corrupted by the security flaw in ie11,
So I would disregard the warning and Offer to upgrade to the Paid for version of Secunia,

If you don't have ie11 you can download it through the previous link you posted Optimize for Bing and MSN,
Download Internet Explorer - Browser
If you don't want the Optimized version Uncheck the box under Get Internet explorer 11
But by No means do you need to Upgrade to Secunia 7 or Try Secunia 7 because it is Not Free,
Cheers.

Not to resurrect an old thread (too late), but FYI:

The vulnerability that your software is alerting you to isn't something you need to worry about --- UNLESS you use Internet Explorer to browse the web. (Which is why it says "Not safe for browsing.")

If you don't open IE, and just use FireFox or Chrome, you don't have to worry about the security alert.

And it's definitely not worth the effort of uninstalling and reinstalling and getting flustered about it... as you can see, even the alert says it's not a critical item (one green dot).

Also -- don't take the word of only one software about the security of your system. If you're in doubt, try another one and see if it gives you the same result.

If you did a disk cleanup after installing IE11 and then you decide to want to uninstall it, it will put you back on IE8, I know this from experience even when IE9 shipped with my laptop by default so that is kind of a warning for people

Hello Imojen,

Did you already previously install IE11 from Windows Update?

Did you reset your Windows Update history before what is showing now?
