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.
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 For each newer version of IE you see a newer version of the IE blocker kit.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.
Okay, that makes sense. :)
