Or grab this security tool if you want to stay with IE.

IE Security Tool


In my PC corner for the winter, my little heater by my side, to game, read and knit.

Well I've downloaded it and run it - which I presume means I've installed it.

But do I have to do anything else ??

If I have to "configure" anything I am lost !!!! eek

Since I never use IE, I didn't download it. Your other option, Mad, is to use Firefox or Chrome or one of the other browsers until they fix it.

Going by what Microsoft says on their
***Instructions for the Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit***,
Quote:
To get started, install the msi. It will place icons on the start menu for the main program as well as a user's guide.

So it looks like you have to check that user's guide to configure it.

There are also some suggestions under "Suggested Actions" on the technet webpage http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/security/advisory/2757760

There's too much to quote there, and it doesn't look automatic at all.
