No, the IE Security updates aren't included, it's just another of Microsoft's badly worded articles. Every months Security-only articles has stated they include the IE updates, but they don't. They...

Hi Kinyip,

Glad you got it sorted out! :thumbsup:

Yes, from past experience the Repair Install never touches .NET Framework, so that's usually left in place. It does revert back to IE8 though...

Hello Efdy,

After you've done a repair install, you'll notice Windows Update will be broken. It'll just sit on "Checking for updates" for hours.

Just a quick headsup - the April rollup reappeared in my update list again today, so it might have been reissued.
