Which browser you use is a matter of personal choice I use IE11 because I like the features, I do have FireFox as a backup. There are plenty of Windows updates available.

What you may have heard is that IE is more susceptible to malware because it is targeted more than any other browser.  That is true.  The usual advice is to switch to another browser like Mozilla Firefox.  However, the user (and what he/she does) is the biggest factor.  Staying safe really depends on practicing safe computer habits.  In other words, you could just as well be infect via another browser if you are a click-crazy kind of person.
