    December 12 2015 "big" update.

    The new windows 10 update of December 12th 2015 killed my Internet Explorer. Now I MUST use EDGE...
    This is an update that says it will take 25 minutes but takes hours.

    Do you have a KB # for this? I do not know of such an Update nor do I find any since the 8th of Dec. Nor has anything "killed" IE or forced use of Edge only. Nor am I aware of any Update taking "hours" or any having an install time specified. Could you, would you, please, provide additional info regarding this. Thanks.

    The only "big" Update, recently was in early to mid November, the Fall Update to version 1511

    jcm, hello.

    Go into the C:\ -> Program Files -> Internet Explorer and find the ieinstal.exe, two-click on it and voilà.

    My IE is still running as desired. I ignore what could have zapped yours. Thunder happens !

    All best wishes. Jean.

    I also haven't gotten any Win10 updates since 12/8/2015. I did just finish getting Office 2007 updates and Service Pack 3 an hour ago, had a large number to do after installing Office 2007 yesterday.

    Use System Restore to return to the point before you installed the updates.

    Yeah; I didn't get an update on the 12th but did the 8th. Weird indeed.

    Can I make a request about dates please. This is an international forum so the date format used is important. In the USA it's of the form mm/dd/yyyy, in the UK it's dd/mm/yyyy. I'm not entirely sure what other countries have (e.g. I assume from Drew's post above that Canada has the UK form). I must confess that I read Berton's post above as the 12th of August rather than the 8th of December. Often the context makes it clear but not always. And I do check where people's location is. But many don't have one. So saying 8th August or 12th December means that there's no confusion.

    Thanks awfully chasps!

    Or use yyyy/mm/dd. I believe that is universal.

    That too would be very acceptable! And as you say, it always in that format.
