As of January 12, Microsoft no longer supports versions of its Internet Explorer web browser prior to the current—and final—version of Internet Explorer 11.
Microsoft released a final security patch for Internet Explorer 8, 9, and 10, which included an “End of Life” notification for the users of those versions as a reminder that the browser is no longer supported. To avoid potential issues caused by operating an older, unsupported version of Internet Explorer, PC users can upgrade to Internet Explorer 11 by turning on automatic updates, which are activated by selecting “Check for Updates” on the Windows Update portion of the control panel.
Windows 7, 8.1, and 10 users will continue to receive technical support, security updates, and compatibility fixes for Internet Explorer 11, according to Microsoft.
Users who are running older versions of Internet Explorer should immediately upgrade to Internet Explorer 11 or learn which web browsers UITS recommends for use with IU services.
