Important 

  • The fixes included in this Security Update for Internet Explorer 4025252 are also included in the July 2017 Security Monthly Quality Rollup. Installing either the Security Update for Internet Explorer or the Security Monthly Quality Rollup installs the fixes that are resolved in this update.
