Unless you solve this problem, please do not use Internet Explorer.

To solve the problem, just go to Windows Update in Control Panel and Check for updates – apply all critical (recommended) updates NOW.

Windows Update settings

Go to Control Panel – Windows Update and make sure it is set to automatic checking and installing updates.

You may temporarily want to disable this setting when you are in very low bandwidth places. But remember to put it to automatic whenever you are back to home or office.
