        I run Windows 7 Pro (64 bit) SP1 on 2 computers. I have several browsers on my computers, including IE 12.

        I don’t want to install Edge. Susan Bradley’s info on the above update says that it ‘removes the old Edge and installs the new version’.

        Since I don’t have Edge installed, will this update give me the new Edge, or will it skip that part of the process?

        How do I assure that this update will NOT install Edge on my computers?

        There is no IE12. The latest IE browser is IE11.

        KB5001335 will install the new Edge but will leave IE11 in place.
        IE11 is not supported anymore so it is open to malware, hackers…

        You don’t have to use Edge, just leave it be.

        KB5001335 is the April Cumulative Update for Win7.
        Microsoft is NOT force installing Edge (any version) on Win7.
        KB5001335 does NOT install Edge on Win7.
        For Win7, IE11 received an update, KB5000800, on March 9, 2021 (March Patch Tuesday).

        You are safe installing KB5001335 on Windows 7 SP1.
        I have installed it successfully on three of my Win7, without getting Edge.

        Edge for Win7 is a separate update KB5001027/KB4567809 which the User can choose to install or not. If you don’t want it, you can uncheck it and/or hide it in Windows Update.

        HMW3, kb5001335 is safe to install as PKCano has previously stated.
        If you want to avoid (Chromium) Edge in windows 7, go to the Recommended/ Optional section of Windows Update and hide both kb5001027 and kb4567809 as reassurance.

        First, sorry I mistyped. I have IE 11.

        Second, KB5001335 did not show up on my ‘Select updates to install’ list, So I went to Microsoft’sUpdate Catalog, and selected it. I got a message which says I have chosen to open:  _5-x86-0233251fcc39501ef15cadb5398fda14af0ba598.msu. I selected ‘Open with Windows Update Standalone Installer (default)’ . I then got a message saying ‘The update is not applicable to your computer’. So what did I do wrong here?

        You said: “For Win7, IE11 received an update, KB5000800, on March 9, 2021 (March Patch Tuesday).’ Unfortunately, the Master Patch List no longer shows previous month’s updates. Where can I find this update?

        Susan:

        I must be destined not to have this update. I am sure I selected the correct one  “The Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer 11 Windows 7 for x64-based systems”.

        I downloaded it to my computer. Then I tried to install it. It appeared to be going fine and said it was installed. But when I then followed the prompts to restart my computer, I would get a message that Windows was rebooting, and then it starting uninstalling the update! Then it rebooted again to my previous setup. I tried this three times, all with the same results. My update history indicates that it failed three times. I then opened IE 11, and it still lists a previous update.

        What have I missed?

          If you have not paid for the ESU (Extended Security Updates) subscription from Microsoft, the updates will not install.

          If you install KB5001335 (the April CU, you do not need KB5000800 (the IE11 patch) because it is contained in the CU. You only need it if you install the Security-only patch which does not contain the IE Update.

          Do you have an ESU subscription? If so, you should get the CU through Windows Update.
          Are you using @abbodi86 ‘s script instead?

        PKCano:

        Yes, I have an ESU. I am in my 2nd year. As far as I know it is still valid. It is with IDG. I got it through the articles on this askwoody forum.

        KB5001335 does NOT appear when I access Windows Update. The last Monthly Security Rollup I show in my update history is KB4598279, which I installed Feb. 6, 2021.

        I have no idea what @abbodi86 is.

          Your last update, KB4598279, is the Janusry 2021 Rollup. That is the last update for the first year of ESU. You cannot install the second year ESU patches.

          It is my suspicion that your second year subscription may not be set up correctly, because you are not able to install the second year patches. Go back over the requirements and setup for the second year and make sure they are correct. If necessary, contact IDG to be sure the licensing is correct. Once you get this straight, you will probably not have problems with updating.

        You were almost spot on. I found my original license number for what I purchased. It gave me some Email addresses. Then I did an email search on my computer.

        Back in January, I got a note for the 2nd year extension, which said to fill out the attached form. But the form asked for information that I did not have, so I sent a reply asking for some clarification.

        But I never got a reply! I then got busy, and forgot about it. So you are correct: my license has expired.

        I sent an email this afternoon to a specific person at the firm, asking how to proceed, and also to answer my original question.

        I’ll let you know how it all turns out.
