    I have Win7, have installed Firefox and removed IE8. From a post on an MS site I appreciate not all of IE is removed - I assume that other windows components require parts of it.

    I do not allow MS to download updates, only notify me of availability. In late-November I had removed IE. In mid-December I got a notification of KB976325, a cumulative update for IE, whose publication data was 8 December..

    Some questions.
    a. Having removed IE8 what are the consequences of not installing KB976325?
    b. If I install it will I get all of IE installed?
    c. Having removed IE why did I receive the notification of KB976325?
    d. If I do not need it how can I remove it from the download list?

    NB. I had already removed silverlight, all of .net and Live Essentials.

    Did you look at the KB article? That says the patch is for Internet Explorer 6 Service Pack 1 (SP1) with the following operating systems: Windows 2000 SP4.

    Unless you made a typo, something's very wrong.

    It is for IE8 also as I have that update and I have the default IE8 installed. maybe IE8 still has part of the operation of IE6?

    All typing errors are my own work and subject to patents pending. Except errors by the spell checker. And that has its own patients.

    If you have "removed" IE and have no intention whatsoever of using it, there is little point in accepting any Windows Update patches for IE - of any flavour.
