Windows 7: Stop Windows Update from Reminding Me About IE10

Haven't heard anything about inactive USB ports. IE9 is working fine for me.

Yeah well how about the reports of USB ports going inactive after this last round of updates.

Perhaps you could enlighten us about this potential update issue!

No I'm not in a very good mode this afternoon.

Personally your mode or "mood" is no excuse for rudness.
At least you did not tell the replier they were INSANE as you did in another post.

Have a great day and cheer up.

All MacGyvr really said was "Not installing updates exposes you to vulnerabilities". How is this talking/writing like MS is GOD? It's a true statement.

Do updates sometimes cause problems - absolutely. I don't know actual precentages but I would bet there is a less than 1% failure rate. No one posts to say how nice the update process worked or that there were no problems. The only time people post is when problems occur so we (forum followers) tend to get a distorted view of reality.

That's my $.02 worth and I'm stickin to it.

You should still install IE9 for the security enhancements and integration with other products. You may not be actively using it, but your system still does. Not installing updates exposes you to vulnerabilities you may not be aware of. Don't let stubbornness cause your system to be non-secure. If you're that anti-MS, use Linux.
I see no reason to install IE9 if you have no other version of IE on your PC. If you are using Firefox4 then you do not need IE at all . I have three computers at home , all running windows 7 and no IE at all. I do run MS Flight Sim but I do not need IE for that.

Well how do you uninstall IE8.
Quit simple for UE users as it is not included but for us USA users that is another story, I think.

I'm not sure if this is true for Windows 7, but I know it is for XP. You can't uninstall it because you NEED Internet Explorer.
Many programs use internet explorer, expecially in the .NET framework (something used to create programs). If you remove Internet Explorer, many applications will be useless. This is also why you should upgrade to IE9. Then you just set a different browser as your default and remove the IE9 icons from the desktop and start menu.

I use a programme called OpenBVE, a train simulator, which relies on .NET. I run this very satisfactory without IE fitted at all on my computer, you guys in the US have listened to too much propoganda from MS, you do not need IE. I still use MS as my OS, but do not use IE or WM

Windows 7 is not XP. Indeed, in the XP days it was not possible to remove Windows Explorer without rendering the system very unstable. In Windows 7 it is very simple to remove IE:

Control Panel -> Programs and Features -> Turn Windows features on or off -> uncheck Internet Explorer -> OK, apply, maybe reboot.

Now, this of course removes icons and links, but does it remove the actual code? I don't think so. There are several Windows features that use Internet access and I bet they simply use the IE code without "running the IE itself" if that makes any sense. What I mean by that is you don't get an IE window and don't have a corresponding process in Task Manager.

However, what I don't know is whether Windows Update will want you to update to IE9 even if you "turn off" the IE by the above method. Logically thinking it should not (why update the removed program?) but at the same time the vulnerabilities in the other network-aware code should be patched somehow. I am not sure how separated these things actually are.

But at least, if you turn off the IE, you don't need to worry about using it. At the same time, you can have it installed and still not use it. Is there any advantage of uninstalling IE vs simply ignoring it? I don't know any, unless a few MB of space are crucial for you.

This is an incorrect as you can be. You DO have IE. It is included with Windows. Other functions in Windows such as Windows Update use it. Why are you so resistant? What is IE9 going to do to hurt you?
