I'm still on IE 10 and have removed the check mark from the auto new version box. You might want to consider going into Control Panel -> Programs and Features and deleting / uninstalling IE 11. This will reinstall IE 10 and then you can uncheck the box that you'll see when you go Help -> About

After that I'd shut down, have a cup of tea and then power up and run Windows Update and see what happens

Only two of your list of failed updates actually relate directly to IE 11. Updates do fail from time to time but I haven't heard of any significant problems with the September batch.


Just a suggestion, but go into Windows updates in Control panel change your setting to 'Check for updates but let me choose whether to download and install them.', then run 'Check for updates'. This will produce a list of available updates. De-select them all, then select two or three of them and click install. If these install properly, then repeat the process from 'Check for updates' for the next two or three, and so on until you have finished.


Tedious I know, but it usually works, and if there is an update which is causing the problem you can identify it much more easily this way.
