Windows 7: IE 11 locks up on AOL mail after installing critical update

IE 11 locks up on AOL mail after installing critical update

IE 11 would lock up when attempting to read AOL mail, on my HP laptop. Firefox worked fine to read AOL mail. Uninstalled IE11, which rolled browser back to IE10. AOL mail worked fine. Fresh install of IE11 and AOL mail worked fine. Installed several critical updates(I seldom do recommended updates), including KB3160005, and guess what?? IE11 locks up trying to access AOL mail. Uninstalled & hid update KB3160005 & IE11 is working fine. Just another reason to manually install MS updates!!
