Hello,

I would like to know if it is possible to setup Internet Explorer to check for new updates ? I was trying to find some information on Microsoft web page but it was impossible, so many redirections. I don't know if these updates come with Windows Update service.

Regards,

Hi there!

It really depends on which component you're trying to update.

Internet Explorer (itself) updates should be handled by Automatic Updates (or WSUS if you're using it). More than likely, the add-on (such as Flash player) is where the update is necessary. Unfortunately, I don't believe there is a way to automatically check for updates for addons in a sweep.

Though this would be a really nice feature, though.

So how do you look for new version of Flash Player ? Checking every time on their web page ?

Pretty much. =P Most components will post an update notice for important updates. For example, if there is an update to the Flash Player, you'll get a notice when you try to view a YouTube (or any other Flash) video.

However, most updates to these components are not required updates and should not cause any issues if they are slightly out of date. I'm still using Flash Player 9 at the office and I haven't run in to any issues with it yet.
