Hey All,

There seems to be an issue with MS latest security update for IE 11 on Windows 7. For MANY, not just me. All the other updates installed fine, last "patch Tuesday" but this one did not go through the automatic update process. Others are having the same issue. If you read here, it seems to be more of an "optional update." but MS did not push it through automatic updates on last Tuesday's patches. See here:

What's going on? Is this patch expected to go through at a later time, moved to optional, or what? I thought that ALL Windows Updates classified as important as long as Automatic Windows Update was turned on, went through?

That's the cumulative update that updates IE from 11.0.4 to 11.0.7.

I've got 4 computers with Windows 7 and IE11, and the update installed fine in all of them. (y)

Installed the update manually with no problems,

Seems human interaction may be required for this update, which is why although marked Important, Windows can't feed this update through totally automatically.

Yep. That update was at the top of the list of April 2014 updates, but it was unchecked, so you had to check it in order for it to install.
