.Net Browser control updates

Say, if I used a .Net browser control 6 years ago and it had some shortcomings (like misinterpretation of incoming stream, like in old IE). Now I use the same .Net version but Windows is updated and Internet Explorer is updated. Can I assume that the control is upgraded? Or, probably, to be more correct, libraries it's using are upgraded and the problem is fixed if it is fixed in the new version of the IE?

No problem anarki, also I want to leave you this link for reference:
The WebBrowser control is a managed wrapper for the ActiveX WebBrowser control, and uses whichever version of the control is installed on the user's computer.

Yes, you can confirm this by creating a windows forms application and adding a WebBrowser control to your form, run the application and load a page on it, then by using Process Explorer you can see the  DLLs  loaded by your application, in my system show everything updated, e.g. C:\Windows\SysWOW64\ieframe.dll, version 9.0.8112.16437.

"really you are a quantumn electronics scientist? "

I WAS :)  I have about 25 publications, including in international magazines. Not many, frankly speaking. Mostly about laser systems.

However for last nearly 10 years I'm working in software development. Just moved to live in New Zealand and did not find any demand for my laser skills :)
