    Strange Question for Win7 updates

    My friend gave me a call and asked some questions where I had answers, but one I had no idea.

    He does not install all the updates that Microsoft comes out with and from time to time he calls me and asks if I installed one or two that he is unsure of. Well he did something really weird which I did not ask why. What he did was he went to the restore updates and checked everything that he had hidden. Now he asked me that according to him there are updates that were hidden that are not showing up on the new list of "updates needed". I told him it is probably because he did a later update which superseded that older one; hence why it is not showing up anymore.

    But the question he posed to me which I am not sure of. He told me the updates (KB2547666 and KB2545698) which he had hidden, but are now showing up to be installed. He asked me about them and I went to go look at Susan's old newsletters. Now in the one dated 10-27-2011 she mentions these two as for I.E. 9 so I called him back and asked which version of I.E. he was on. He said that he has been using I.E. 11 when it was released.

    So I am not sure why if these are indeed for I.E. 9, why are they showing up since he is using I.E. 11? Does anyone know about this or seen this? I never have done what he did (uncheck all the hidden updates to restore them).

    Thanks

    They weren't specifically for IE9, just recommended back then along with IE9. They fix Windows 7 issues, so would almost certainly be equally recommended when using IE11.
