Internet Explorer not on safe list?

Yesterday I installed the new .276 version - everything seems to be running o.k. Noticed when I first opened Internet Explorer I got a popup informing me that iexplore.exe wanted to connect to the internet and that it was an unrecognized application - surely Internet Explorer should be on the safe list, I would have thought this would have been one of the first things added to the list! I’m pretty sure that the previous versions I had installed all recognized Internet Explorer - am I missing something here?

maybe some latest just-downloaded version who’s hash is not on the safelist?

Yeah, come to think of it I went to Windows Update a few days ago and I think there might have been an Internet Explorer security update - could that be it?

that’s what i meant

Almost certainly
