I do have a choice, I do not have IE8 or IE9 on my computer and I have not received any patch update that mac listed on my non IE computers. However, I have checked my grandsons, computer, he uses from my house on my wirelesss network, and he does have those updates because he uses IE8, and now IE9. IE is a web browser, not an OS, why should you need it, it used to be part of the OS, but is not now and I bet you can remove it if you tried as well. That is if you wanted to of course, do not get me wrong, if IE8 or 9 was fitted to my computer I would leave it alone, but it does not come with a european MS OS.

So, given your Original Post, do you still get the suggestion to "update" to IE9 through Windows Update on the system without IE8? Or you were talking about other computers were you had IE8?
No, I get no suggestion to update to IE9, update never mentions anything about IE at all.

Oh, ok, sorry, it was the OP who had the update problem :)

But it's good to know that disabling IE also means that there will be no updates for it as well.
