  1. Latest version of Internet Explorer 8 for Windows 7??? (SP1)

    MS discontinued supporting IE8, 9 and 10 since January 2016. So if you wish to continue using a non-supported browser, you can download the last IE8 cumulative update that was released on the 10th June 2017 below:- x64: http://download.windowsupdate.com/c/csa/csa/secu/2017/04/windows6.1-kb4018271-x64-custom_33a66978d36f16a33b042b2abea45cdddf90c17f.msu x86: http://download.windowsupdate.com/c/csa/csa/secu/2017/04/windows6.1-kb4018271-x86-custom_0aaca7d3a92b3030bca78a44281ce86ec7cd5dab.msu
  2. Internet Explorer 11 (Updated 13/02/2018)

    Updated first post, and sorry for leaving this thread non-updated for so long. With the death of my step-dad and other personal life issues getting in the way, I have not found much time to update this thread, and just barely enough to update the Windows Update Lists.
  3. Sadly my step-dad has passed away from his long battle with cancer.

      Thank you, me and my family appreciate the support during this difficult time.

      I'm sorry to her that your step-dad lose his long battle with cancer. I lost my mom due to lung cancer almost six years ago. :(

      Don't get upset bro. This is life and try to adjust it as quick as possible and try reaching your goals.........

      GOOD LUCK!

  4. I'll list them here Security Updates - These are recommended to be installed ASAP! And are essential. Non-Security Updates - These updates are optional, though to install/integrate KB3125574-v4 you will need to download some updates in this category. Convenience Update Rollup - Very much recommended to install KB3125574-v4, as it contains nearly all updates Feb 2011 to Apr 2016! Some say this is Service Pack 2 for Windows 7. .NET Framework 3.5.1 - These are recommended to be installed ASAP! And are essential. Pre-Release - Only download if you're a keen tester of software. Security - Optional Language - Only if your first language is not English. Display Driver - Optional, but I would recommend to download and install, but only if you have a Nvidia Graphics Card. Hope this helps clarify what the categories mean.
  5. Internet Explorer 11 (Updated 13/02/2018)

    Updated OP, KB3185319 replaced with KB4012215. And I have added required updates you need to install before installing/integrating IE11!
  6. Thanks, as for the 60 or so updates, they may have been superseded by the convenience update, though KB3125574-v4 doesn't cover all updates since SP1 was released like Feature Packs or Platform Updates.
  7. Just tested the direct download link, and it still works beyond the EOS deadline. MS doesn't support WLE2012, but will leave the downloads active for a few more years, for those that still want to use programs that still work like Photo Gallery or Writer.
  8. fedrace, thanks for the little oversight, I have now re-uploaded the new zip files, and hopefully everything should work now, and I'm really sorry for the inconvenience.
  9. Strange, but thanks for the feedback, I'll will remove those zip files if they are not working, but in the meantime, you can try the UL's on my Onedrive, link provided on OP.
  10. Yes, you do need to rename the downloaded zip file, and then try to install the ULZ again. You don't need to unzip the UL file inside otherwise, you'll get the error message from WUD. Should hopefully be fixed now, but since I'm updating the lists currently on a library computer which is restricted from installing software, I cannot test the UL's like I normally would.
  11. I have updated the lists on OP, but you will need to change the file extensions from .zip to .ulz!
  12. More bad news, my Step-Dad's throat cancer has returned and he has decided to give up by not having another op.

    So the lists will not be updated until next year.

      Thanks, my dad is prepared to try a new cancer drug and more chemo, i just hope this helps his recovery.

      :( Sorry to hear that and hope he gets better. Did he have a history of smoking or anything that would cause it?

    4. steven4554



      Yes, he started smoking when he was 13 years old, back in 1949. But doctors have stated that the smoking didn't cause the cancer. He is now 80 years old and is going to fight this to the end.

  13. I'm sure it will be useful, thanks. Even though i can't view the file atm, cause i have no other PC, and I'm using my Xbox One to type this out.
  14. Some personal stuff in my life needs dealing with, so sadly the fixing of my PC is put on hold. This also means no updated UL's, but still committed to updating them, but can't give a deadline of when. 


  15. Internet Explorer 11 (Updated 13/02/2018)

    Updated first post to replace old update from last year, with one that's been released KB3185319.
