      I did not install KB4483187 – December 2018 “out-of-band” Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer prior to installing January Security Monthly Quality Rollup for Windows 8.1 KB4480963.

      KB4483187 is superseded by KB4480965 – January 2019 Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer  which is included in KB4480963.

      After installing KB4480963 Windows Update did not remove KB4483187 from the list of offered updates, although IE 11 shows that it is updated to KB4480965


      After automatic update check KB4483187 remains checked in the list of offered updates.


      Should I install KB4483187 anyway?

      Looks like either MS patch supersedence for KB4483187 isn’t doing as it should once KB4480963 SQMR update is applied. I’ve got three w8.1 devices and none of them have shown this..
      although the difference is, I did patch KB4483187 in December and have KB4480963 installed.
      To answer your question, I would install it anyway as it should sort itself out.

        you are correct about KB4483187, Microfix. Windows Update will still offer KB4483187, even if newer IE11 patches like KB4480965 (and later) were installed.

        On the other hand, installing KB4483187 does prevent Windows Update from ever offering old IE11 updates like KB3185319 as I have confirmed this behavior myself on the Win7 & Win8.1 computers that I have. I removed/uninstalled KB3185319, installed both KB4480965 and KB4483187, reboot and re-ran a Windows Update scan and KB3185319 no longer shows up on Windows Update.
