Hi Joe,

 It's not there. Maybe I have some spyware?

If you still can't find it, click twice on the "Name" header at the top of the column so the 'arrowhead' points down, like soInstalled Updates (click for larger)that should make the Windows Internet Explorer 10 entry come to the 'top' of the Microsoft Windows (###) section.

Websites are getting bigger and complicated by the day. Video, images, custom fonts are all great for showcasing your product/service. But the price to pay in terms of reduced page load times and ultimately, decreased sales, can lead to some difficult decisions about what to cut.

Frank,
Are you sure you clicked on "View Installed Updates"? It doesn't appear in the normal "Uninstall or change a program" section of Programs and Features. Here's what I'm talking about when you first enter Programs and Features:
programs-features-view-installed-updatesYou must click the "View Installed Updates" that I circled.

Yes, I am. I've done this before that's why it was strange to me that I wasn't able to see it on that list.

What do you have as the first few entries in the Microsoft Windows section when sorted by the Name column descending? Here's what mine looks like:

The crazy thing is that I don't even have Microsoft Update column.

Let's make sure we're on the same wavelength here, because there is no "Microsoft Update" column in what I'm talking about. In the "View Installed Updates" portion of "Programs and Features", there's a section called "Microsoft Windows". The default columns displayed in that section are Name, Program, Version, Publisher, Installed On. There are many other optional columns that can be selected, but there is NOT a column called "Microsoft Update". I'd love to see a screenshot of your "Microsoft Windows" section sorted descending by the Name column, as posted in my previous comment. Can you do that?

Click the 'start' orb.
Type in appwiz.cpl and hit Enter.
On the left side of the dialog window that opens, click View installed updates.

Click on the 'Name' column header twice to make the arrowhead point 'down' (as shown in the screengrab posted in http:#a39255203 ).

Most people will have Adobe Reader XI at the top, then Microsoft .NET Framework 4 (at least Client, and possibly Extended, if installed), then Microsoft Office (if any Office components are installed), Microsoft Silverlight, then Microsoft Windows (If any SQL or Visual Studio components are installed, they'll appear before the Microsoft Windows section when sorted by Name with the arrowhead pointing down).
