Microsoft pushes ads for Windows 10 in a security update

Security update package MS16-023 for Internet Explorer doesn’t only contain security patches, but also a few other things, including: “This update adds functionality to Internet Explorer 11 on some computers that lets users learn about Windows 10 or start an upgrade to Windows 10.”

Microsoft does not reveal what this means, or what this has to do with Internet Explorer. According to Woody Leonhard over at Infoworld, the update pushes a banner on Internet Explorer 11’s New Tab Page advertising the company’s new operating system Windows 10.

Unfortunately the ads can’t be uninstalled without uninstalling the whole security update package.
