Windows 7: Selected updates not installing

I don't believe Windows Update will give you a auto Upgrade for I.E..
It will give you Updates for the the I.E. you have installed.
Example:
If you are running I.E. 10 you will get updates for I.E. 10 but you will not get a auto upgrade to I.E. 11.

Now open I.E. and go to Help. It will tell you what I.E. you are using and give you a choice to auto update or not with a check mark.

*** I accept all I.E. Updates (not upgrades) except Bing. Because I don't like Bing.
Every now and then I still get a update for Bing but I just hide it.

Post an image of your Windows Update options (Sample Below). I think you are confused between Automatic Updates and Let Me Choose options.

If you follow my instruction in post # 11 I don't believe you will get a Upgrade of I.E..

First - I know I'm using IE9. Very occasionally, but that's the version installed.
Second - I know of people who have been automatically upgraded to IE10. No question of them ticking or unticking wrongly.

That's not in the least surprising - the upgrade to IE10 went from being an optional one to an automatic one well before IE11 came out.
IE11 is not yet being rolled out as an automatic update, as far as I know - it's been an optional one since release in November. It's offered, yes, but is not 'ticked' by default - but I haven't checked it recently

Good day Noel.
If I remember correctly with the way alicante has the Updates set it will still have to be checked (accepted) before the Upgrade will install.
Is that your understanding?

Yup! Update is performing just as the OP has it optioned. Each update must be selected and the Install button clicked. The day and time is greyed out so it's not active.
