Internet Explorer in Windows 8.1

December 16, 2014 at 10:35:42
Specs: Windows 8.1
I have a tablet running Windows 8.1
All of the windows updates are up to date

Often times when I'm on the internet with IE, I get a message that IE is out of date.
I know I have the most current version of IE and I know that all of the windows updates are up to date.

Why is IE telling me that it's out of date and what can I do to fix it??

Thanks

Have you tried resetting IE?

That's very strange, considering IE is built into Windows 8.

If it is urging you to click something to update it then let us know because it might be malware?

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Won't hurt to double check Derek's suggestion.

Here are the first 2 steps, there may be more steps needed after I see the results of these logs.

Run them in this order.

Step 1: Run AdwCleaner

Tutorial

Close all open programs and internet browsers.
Double click on AdwCleaner.exe to run the tool.
Click on Clean.
Confirm each time with Ok.
Your computer will be rebooted automatically. A text file will open after the restart.
Please Copy & Paste the contents of that logfile with your next answer.
You can find the logfile at C:\AdwCleaner[S1].txt as well.

Step 2: Run Junkware Removal Tool

Download Junkware Removal Tool onto your Desktop. If your default download location is not the Desktop, drag it out of it's location onto the Desktop.

Shut down your protection software now to avoid potential conflicts.

Run the tool by double-clicking it. If you are using Windows Vista or Windows 7/8, right-click JRT and select Run as Administrator.
The tool will open and start scanning your system.
Please be patient as this can take a while to complete depending on your system's specifications.
On completion, a log (JRT.txt) is saved onto your Desktop and will automatically open.
Copy and Paste the contents of the JRT.txt log please.
