Finding fixes hidden in the dark corners of Microsoft is a challenge.
I have run into a couple of issues but that's usually lately because I hide ie11,
Once I unhide it and restart my machine and recheck for updates the issue goes away,
I understand your using ie11 but I was just adding details to my issue,
I now just leave it listed as a Optional update along with Silverlight.

Yes Noel is the magician
I know this is an old thread, but I don't want to open another.

You mentioned hiding IE11. I also hid all IE kb's since I don't use IE. I have IE8 installed, but rarely/almost never use it.

Do I need all these IE11/10/9 updates if I never use IE?

I hid IE kb's but all IE updates are important and upon hiding they just disappear. How did you manage to make them optional? I am about to install a large batch of updates after installing Win7 and want it to go as smooth as possible.

Hi,
If you don't use internet explorer I would at the least update it to current ie11 and still not use it
I don't use ie11 either but I don't hide updates either for anything.

No matter if IE11 is used or not you should keep it up to date for security reasons as many processes utilize it in the background.
It's part of the OS and should be updated like everything else but nobody forces you to use it, simply make whatever browser of choice the default, that's all.

Thank you. Should I uninstall IE8 before installing the IE11 KB update?

Windows will do that for you. Just install the KB and that should be all that's necessary.
I, like you, use another browser, but strangely I came across one website the other day that I often have used in the past, and suddenly it would not display at all in Firefox or Chrome...only in IE11.
So it does have some uses ;-).

Some sites i want to use such as the Microsoft Update Catalog require using IE.
Try this site with different browsers and see how it works:

I have two IE related KB's. Since Win will uninstall IE8, why do I need the IE8 KB? Or will it go away once I install IE11?

Hi,
Mostly because it's likely an Important update
ie11 on the other hand is likely a Recommended update and you have the updates showing in the same Important section.
In simple terms your update settings are off is all I can figure
Go to change settings and uncheck the box
Give me Recommended updates the same as Import ones.

That box is already unchecked.

If you leave both of those checked, IE11 should install first and KB3124275 should install after that. KB3124275 applies to more than just IE8. You see IE8 in the title for the KB because IE8 was installed when the search for updates was made. If you had already installed IE11, then the title for KB3124275 would say IE11.
