I have got Internet Explorer running in the background now and then for some months (after a couple of reformats), I always have been confident it isn't virus related but I simply want to know what is it doing.

Today I got a debug popup from it, so I could get more information, so maybe someone can help me to know what it is and if it is possible/worth to disable.

I work on web development and sometimes have to test my work not only on Edge but also on IE, that's why I keep it installed.

The page that was loading/loaded:
https://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=517287
 
URL of the script that failed:
https://c.s-microsoft.com/en-us/CMSScripts/script.jsx?k=517a7087-9636-e078-8b13-a173049192f5_4c905457-169a-061a-e153-0372577f2998_742bd11f-3d7c-9955-3df5-f02b66689699_525283c5-3d35-4dd2-5a96-acaf933fab61_49488e0d-6ae2-5101-c995-f4d56443b1d8_7dea7b90-4334-c043-b252-9f132d19ee19_38aa9ffb-ddb5-75be-6536-a58628f435f5_e3e65a0a-c133-43e7-571d-2293e03f85e6_4ca0e9dc-a4de-17ba-f0de-d1d346cb99e2_06310cd8-41c6-3b11-4645-b4884789ed70_5c27e8aa-9347-969e-39ac-37a4de428a8d_188a3c45-8ca5-1d5f-40a6-9a44de01510f_be92d794-4118-193f-9871-58b72092a5ac_64c742e2-b29c-b6c1-fdd9-accf33ec40bd_cf2ceca9-3467-a5b3-d095-68958eee6d4c_cec39dd8-f1d3-56f1-abfc-a7db34ff7b46_ec5fa2c9-3950-ff57-a5c3-1fa77e0db190_d19f9592-65df-bcc9-e30e-439b875c3381_76a3d06f-f11f-77ef-9bfd-6227ba750200_28ef6180-55bc-102c-3ba8-678e92875e6b_c2dceda8-20b4-7d3f-13b6-9cac67d7df17_914fa41b-cc86-d3b0-4e15-2fdfa357bcc7_40c6c884-da6e-7c2c-081f-4a7dfe7c7245_e873e833-fd57-0e59-df71-c987935694d3_98e05e4f-79f8-40de-b760-63522ff3528b_6c64a040-d05a-e595-ab61-be7ce84985b7

I just clicked on that link and it is normal Microsoft advertising. No problems with that link, it is safe.
