Installing either the Security Update for Internet Explorer or the Security Monthly Quality Rollup installs the fixes that are in this update.

This is because those updates contain all the fixes that are in this security update for Internet Explorer.

We recommend that you review your update deployment rules to make sure that the desired updates are deployed.
