Microsoft is preparing a scheme to automatically push the latest version of Internet Explorer to users' systems. This can be seen as Microsoft following in Google's footsteps, as part of the thinking behind Chrome was to ensure people stay on the current version.
Is there a way to disable future updates of Internet Explorer on a windows server 2012 R2 system? In the IE11 -> "About Internet Explorer" window there is no check box anymore for "Install new versions automatically". Strange because windows 8.1 still has it.
