I found an easy fix for this problem - at least it worked for me. It's as indicated by BrentN above from the Lenovo website
I had the same error report (9c47) each time I tried to install update to IE 11
Clicked on Windows Explorer and Looked at C:Windows\IE11_main.log, which opens a notepad window with a lot of data.
The last few lines read as follows
00:15.959: INFO: Version Check for (KB2882822) of C:\Windows\System32\tdh.dll: 6.1.7601.18247 >= 6.1.7601.18247 (True)

I highlighted the relevent line for the problem I had, and have seen some others have had.
I then went to the Windows update page http://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/download/details.aspx?id=30521
When I tried to install this file, I was told that the file already exists on the computer.
But now when I tried again to install IE 11 it went through perfectly fine
Good luck everybody - if you have a different file number than the one I had, just google it for the relevant Windows update page.
