Excuse my ignorance but as the IE 11 updates are cumulative and you did a fresh install then you would only require the last available, correct ?

That's right, you only need the latest one. It should be around 53mb for 64-Bit, and because it's cumulative contains all past security patches for IE.
Well actually it's just one patch, but you know what I mean.

I wish MS would adopt this method for the Windows security-only updates. It would make them much easier to install instead of having to install every months.
If they can do it with the monthly rollups then why not with the Security-only updates? Maybe it would cause more issues for businesses to deploy?

Being able to install just one update on a fresh install and be up to date security wise would be very handy. Especially with some of the new threats around these days. Not every user wants to install all the extra stuff contained in the rollups.

My guess is MS is deliberately making the security-only updates less convenient than the full rollups to encourage people to use them instead of the security only.

One thing seems clear, after Wanna Cry. Everyone should be installing the monthly security update, along with the IE one if you use that. Also, I don't think Windows Live Mail is safe anymore. Microsoft themselves state this on the page where you used to be able to download it. Or maybe it was on the Live Essentials page. But I just saw it yesterday. I have been using Thunderbird, but recently installed eM Client, to test it out for the woman of the house, as it looks a lot like WLM. She likes it and hopefully will stop using WLM soon. Too bad, I liked WLM myself. But it makes no sense to use it anymore as there many good alternatives that are current and supported.

michael, The issue with Iexplorer is it's so integrated into the OS that I would suggest that you keep it updated security wise, even if you do not use it, the system uses parts of it for it's own purposes so it's better safe than sorry

You know if you'd said that to me a few years ago, I'd have found it hard to believe. But, since the Windows 10 upgrade fiasco... I can believe that!

Also, what happened to MS rolling all the past patches into the cumulative rollups? I haven't seen any evidence of this happening yet as the rollups have barely grown in size from month to month. Maybe more work than MS originally thought it would be??

Heck, I wouldn't have believed it, either.

One possible reason for the relatively slow growth of the roll-up updates is just the fact that an OS that is in Extended Support is only receiving Security Updates, (and some 3rd party updates), and not any feature updates

I can't even work out why they would want to switch to cumulative updates for Windows 7 anyway. As it's reaching EOL in a couple of years. The individual patches have worked fine for years, so why switch now? Seems like a lot of work for an OS that's in extended support and ending relatively soon.

I can understand them doing it for Windows 8.1 as that has a good few years left.
