    I'm curious how an IE vulnerability could allow someone to do a remote code execution if IE is uninstalled/disabled?

    Because, unfortunately, you can't uninstall IE from Windows - not fully. Large portions of it remain embedded within the OS.

    Just hoping that it's mass demand for the update that's causing only one PC to be updated on the day, it's been patch Wednesday for a few months now.

    I've had the same set of three Office updates install themselves multiple times on different machines, so is Windows update screwed or have I been hacked and it's all the Zombies leeching off my connection that are updating at the same time?
