    Was just thinking that this should be coming soon!

    I think it’s for the slight manner in which IE11 is slightly unstable (slight freezes) which, in turn, pass the effect on to the main system sometimes.

    Update: And they’ve all updated [silently] in the background!

      Yeah! I’m having a couple of crashes (disappears) randomly while Reading comments on different sites. Hopefully this will fix that.

    Went into a no-boot situation after the patch. I didn’t turn on system restore because I thought it was only going to change IE, but after the patch the computer can’t boot up and can’t be fixed by system recovery. Had to manually extract files from the source and replace the missing/corrupted ones in the OS. Took me half a day. Lesson : always turn on system restore hahaha :)

    Couldn’t have come at a better time. Metro IE works fine but Desktop IE was giving me headaches.

    Lot’s of issues with IE 11. Tried the beta on Windows 7 and had to go back to IE 10. Like the performance when it was working.

      You’re not alone: I “Tried the beta on Windows 7 and had to go back to IE 10” too:(
