Internet Explorer causes new exploit - Whether you use it or not

Internet Explorer has been found to cause a new Windows exploit even if you use a different web browser, TechRadar reports.

The flaw was found by security researcher John Page, who confirmed that simply having Internet Explorer on your computer is enough for this exploit to be utilised by hackers.

You can still install internet explorer?
Still installed by default. Can't wait for Windows Lite https://www.theverge.com/2019/3/4/1...s-lite-dual-screen-devices-chromebooks-report

Microsoft is preparing a new lightweight version of Windows for dual-screen devices and Chromebook competitors. Sources familiar with Microsoft’s plans tell The Verge that the software maker is stripping back its Windows user interface with dual screens in mind. This new hardware could launch as early as later this year, depending on chip and PC maker readiness.
Windows is so bloated I'm sure a proper lite version will run a zillion times faster.
