Will IE10 be pushed out via Windows Updates?


As we all know Microsoft “officially” announced the launch of IE10 today for Windows 7. But what a lot of system administrators are wanting to know is if IE10 is going to be pushed out via Windows Updates? And the answer is yes, it is.

IE10 Updates

According to the post here on Technet: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/ie/jj898509:

Users of Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1), and 64-bit version of Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 will receive Internet Explorer 10 as an important update if they have Automatic Updates enabled, or if they perform a manual scan for updates on Windows Update.

If you do not want IE10 rolling out, you need to install the Internet Explorer 10 Blocker Toolkit available here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=40722 Only Microsoft would release a blocker for their own software lol. Although when it comes to Internet Explorer, I don’t blame them. However, in my opinion IE10 is leaps and bounds ahead of where it was back with IE6.

When will IE10 be available via Windows Updates?

According to a news post from Microsoft, it will be pushed out over the next couple weeks, starting February 26th, 2013.
